a new joint! needs some work, but I'll take your comments!

Real like the real mccoy
like real butter
like gooey chocolate
that melts in your mouth,
that's me, baby
I'm the real thang!

Ain't no memorex.
No cheap imitations
need to be applied
cause this sister
is the real thang.

Ain't got no chemicals
in my hair.
Ain't got no games to play.

Just wanna be a good person
in this crazy world.
I have no time to waste
so I'm constantly on the grind.
I'm real.
Baby, the real mccoy.

The real thing.

I'm not play pretending
to be a woman on a mission
trying to do something good.
I do my positive things every single day.

Rain or snow,
I'm doing the darn thing.
I'm not a subtitute for a real
woman and I don't play brothers to the left, cause I just want to.
I come with the straight truth
whether you wanna hear it or not.

Emotional and all that I am.
I keep it real.
Even when I scrap my knees trying to fulfill my needs.

Trying to duck and dive all the negativity that is constantly thrown in me.
I don't try to imitate others.

I'm not a toy.
I don't want little boys.
I just want to breath.
Keep myself up to reach to the top.
And ain't nothing gonna stop this
sister with the lyrical flow.

I just love to caress this life
with positive rhymes.
And enjoy the blessings that keep me on the grind.
Love to see the sun shine.
Love to have a beautiful man
on my mind.
I'm a natural girl with no pretenses.

My body's not perfect.
and neither am I
but I stay real.
Keep it real.
Raw though blood sometimes seep from my flowery soul.

I'm the real thang.
Real like a shiny diamond.
Real like a true sister not afraid
of her own glow.
Real like my sisters Jill Scott and India.Arie.
Real like Rosa Parks.
Real like the knife you cut your veggies with.

You get the drift I'm saying that
I'm totally authentic and ain't pretending to be, I just am the
beautiful awesome delicious girl
that loves her natural naps to the

And I keep shining while
God keeps me in the field of life
working to tend to the needs of
others as he reminds me I am
a woman of integrity...
