"Exhibiting You" - Story


Museum Pick: February 9 - 23, 2009

Never let others define…
Just who you are in this space and time

You’ve got to shine sista shine!

Don’t let small town mentality
Leave you in a pall of misery
cloud your vision in apathy

and limit your horizons
shine on sista shine on!

Allow no one to come along
To halt your voice stop your song
Steal the power from your throne

Reclaim your own and
Shine sista shine

Can’t let cut eye competition
become part of your condition
trade intelligence for suspicion?

Vanquish the opposition
And shine daughter shine!

Not to say you won’t be deceived
Learn your lessons well and believe!
The only limits to what you can achieve

Are in the mind girl….
The boundaries of your mind

Let the whispers float over your head
Keep your eye on the prize
Not what was said

Getting caught up in useless argument
No! don’t dip that head hold it
Hold it and shine!

Walk down the street like you own it
Cos you do you know
With those hips you throw

So sweetly in tune to the
Rhythm of the earth


Are the singularity that gave Genesis birth!

The Alpha and Omega

Your renaissance is overdue
What you’ve got to learn to do

Is shine sista
Simply shine!
