letters from jamaica [part deux]


from a poem she saw on a wall in - 

I am a deserving woman.

"I deserve better.  I deserve greater.  I deserve to set standards.
I deserve to have requirements.  I deserve to have goals.
I deserve to have aspirations.  I deserve to be earned.
I deserve to be pleased.  I deserve to be fulfilled.
I deserve to be loved.  I deserve to be cherished.
I deserve to be at peace.
I deserve to be restored.  I deserve to be renewed.
I deserve to be exalted.  I deserve to be uplifted.
I deserve to be called by my name, not out of my name.
I deserve to be respected, I deserve to be protected.
I deserve to feel special.  I deserve to be appreciated.
I deserve to be admired.
I deserve to be desired.  I deserve to be praised.
I deserve to be remembered.  I deserve to be seen as worthy.
Treat me as a Queen, because I deserve to be Me.
A woman who knows her value
Will always demand her worth..."
