I haven’t watched such an honest movie in ages. Sad sad stories of millions and millions of everyday women we meet on the pavement, in class, in the boardroom, the salon, the bus, church, you name it. I trust every woman can see herself reflected in one or more of the women in this movie at one or more stages of her life.
As we celebrate Women’s Day tomorrow, I am thinking womanhood has come a long way from Eden. If one woman per family could get free of the pain and the bitterness of the hand her womanhood has dealt her every now and then, what singing there would be in heaven!!! While the prose written below is sort of complex and may be over the head for some – try and get the overall sense. Its the story of a woman whose man has walked away from her with her valuables that he don’t need and doesn’t even know he has, huh. Her stolen virtue, sense of value and self, intergrity, dignity, confidence, worth…The list goes on. Things that everytime some man mistreats a woman he walks away with chunks of. As we celebrate Women’s Day, I hope many women make the decision to just breathe and let go. Its the only way we grow. Read on…
Somebody almost walked off with all my stuff…
And he did not bother to send a note home saying that i was late for my solo conversation. That i was 2 sizes too small for my own Turkish skirts.
What can anybody do with something of no value on an open market?
Did you get a dime for my things?
Where are you going with all my stuff?
This is a woman’s trip and i need all my things to ooh and arghh about!
Honest to God, somebody almost ran away with all of my stuff.
And i didn’t bring nothing but the kick and sway of it, the perfect ass for my man.
And none of it is theirs!
That’s my name.
Give me my stuff!!!
I see you hiding my lathe. And how sometimes I sit with my legs open to give my crotch some sunlight.
This is some delicate leg and whimsical kiss I gotta have to give to my choice!
So, you can’t have me unless I give me away – And I was doing that until you ran off on a good thing.
And who is this you left me with?
Some simple bitch with a bad attitude.
I want my things!
I want my arm with the hot iron scar.
I want my leg with the flea bite.
I want my things!!!!
I want my colour stated – Put language back in my mouth.
I want my own things! How I love them.
Somebody almost ran away with all of my stuff and I was standing there looking at myself the whole time.
It was not a spirit that ran off with my things…
It was a man whose ego walked around like rodent’s shadow.
It was a man faster than my innocence.
It was a lover I made too much room for, almost ran away with all my stuff.
And the one running with it, don’t know he got it.
I am shouting, “This is mine”! And he don’t even know he got it.
My stuff is the “Anonymous Ripped Off treasure of the year”.
Did you know that somebody almost ran off with me?
Me, in a plastic bag under his arm.
Somebody, almost ran away with all my stuff…
