“I got my hair done!”
“I got my nails done!”
There’s clearly nothing deeper
about life’s shallow and transparent women
who can easily be seen through.
Don’t get me wrong!
Having a nice appearance is lovely;
But do you have any substance to go with that?
Can you handle an intelligent conversation?
Are your discussions primarily about shopping?
Does your whole existence revolve around a man?
Do you have 5 babies from 5 different people?
Do you have any real, concrete life plans?
Let other people talk about their business.
Please make it a point
to go get some of your own!
Reading a good book is always nice!
Open your mind to discover
how others sigh and groan.
There are men who lack substance, too.
They are appeased by trifling women,
but are intimidated by depth and intelligence.
They think ‘stuck up’ is any woman of elegance.
Ladies, I know you see through ‘em.
Their chauvinistic pride can’t take rejection,
so they have to resort to giving you a hard time.
The only thing man about them is their erection
and that probably doesn’t even last long.
The previous is not my concern.
I’m just speakin’ the truth here,
because I can’t stand being around the mentality
that can’t recognize a woman
from any direction other than her rear!
Some men tend to talk about nothing but themselves.
their house(s), their car(s), their jewelry.
If they’re athletes,
it’s all about how many points they scored.
The feelings of the people who really care about them
are often ignored.
True, you did achieve those things,
but you alone are not what life is all about.
Do you make it a point to give back to your community?
Do you recognize the fact
that your community is still in a bout?
People who have substance do.
Such reach out to be a part of something
that’s greater than themselves.
These want to touch others' lives for the better.
We need our youth
to abstain from the grasp of prison cells.
The composition of our bodies
points to our being made out of deep thought,
but our actions at times
make it seem as if otherwise is the case.
Ask yourself: “Is there a specified price
at which I can be bought?
Some people will easily sell their souls
out of outright disgrace.
I personally love a woman of substance.
You can’t get enough of something
that has an exquisite, champagne taste,
which is why all that sleepin’ around is overrated.
Once the rollercoaster is over,
real people who have substance
are the only ones
who are going to stick to you
