Always Wear Your Crown

With the Miss Woman of Excellence Pageant quickly approaching within the coming week , it is important for me to remind my fellow sisters of the Queens Legacy that we as black females must embody on a daily bases. Following is a poem by an unknown author that speaks heavily on the Queens that you all are and that you are destined be !

A Queen

A Queen is proud of herself. She respects herself and others.

She is aware of who she is. She neither seeks definition from

the person she is with, or does she expect them to

read her mind. She is quite capable of

articulating her needs.

A Queen is hopeful. She is strong enough to make all her

dreams come true….. She knows love, therefore she

gives love. She recognizes that her love has

great value and must be reciprocated.

If her love is taken for granted,

it soon disappears.

A Queen has a dash of inspiration, a dabble of endurance.

She knows that she will, at times, have to inspire others

to reach the potential God gave them. A Queen knows

her past, understands her present and

moves toward the future.

A Queen knows the Creative Energy. She knows that with

this the world is her playground, but without she will just

be played. A Queen does not live in fear of the future

because of her past. Instead, she understands that

her life experiences are merely lessons, meant

to bring her closer to self knowledge

and unconditional self love.
