Give me life,
Reminiscent of the air 
I breathe.
Bring out the best in me,
Encourage the way that I feel.
What is this web youíve weaved,
Cause Iím caught up in the 
Serenity of your rapture

Make me react to your expression 
On every degree,
Allow the word of my heart to 
Speak love,
In so doing,
Recognizing that your love has 
Great value and is reciprocated

Give me love,
Understanding beyond that 
Of physicality.
When you touch me,
Caress that innermost part of me,
Grant me freedom from all forms
Of insecurity

Bless me with your ancient wisdom,
Taking my mind and spiritual body
Back to the plains of the motherland
Taking my heart of hearts back to a
Place before we were known as slave

Stand by me,
Joined in elemental fusion,
Like rain falling to earth your mood
Constantly evolving
The afrocentricity of your vibe,
Nonstopping emotions running wild
Some look at the balance between us,
Black woman,
At how fondly I think of you
And say,

Taboo by Solo
