"Money is power!" That's what my mama use to say...  She would work all day and pray all night.  Her whole life revolved around getting money. 

It was cool for a minute... Shoot, I was looking too good to be stressed.  But as the years went by and the money ran out, reality quickly set in… How many cars can you drive at one time?  How much bling can you wear?  Does the square feet of my house really make me better? 

It took years of deprogramming myself to erase my mother words, but I finally did it… Today, a husband and two children later, I know that money don’t make the woMAN, but the woMAN makes the money.

Having it all, is it really worth it?


Much love to the victims of Hurricane Katrina...

Reviewed by Alvin Romer 11/29/2005
The poem and intent of Money Don't Make the woMan was meant to be just another definitive gesture from this talent author with such a good title. As such, stretching it toward it's greater value definitely would enhance further the greater feeling to give readers much more. The title begs for upward mobile thought and intrusive fortitude. Will the author consider a rewrite? Let's hope so!
