I was birthed one day with a gift,
But it wasn’t material.
It was all frustratingly serial to my lifetime movie
Except I have no stunt-double, no rehearsal, and no co-stars to fool me.
It is a language only women seem to understand,
And they are the only ones who I know what I am talking about
Because it is so unknown to man.
A universal superpower that allows us to acquire knowledge
Through the telepathic use of the subconscious.
Helps us understand the difference between clarity and the nonsense.
The only one who really knows you
It is the deepest within your mind
You don’t need a psychologist when you already know what to find.
Like a cheat sheet allowed during the test,
But you still stop to ask what the answer is
Because you are too young to know what it means to have that gut feeling.
Lust is not love,
You have less trust than a fake bank account
But you keep cashing these checks with hope when you know they always bounce.
Your co-workers really don’t give a [expletive]
You work in a survival-of-the-fittest war zone,
Yet you continue to paint smiles and facial expressions on each other like clowns in army uniform.
Your friends are mostly acquaintances,
Only acquaint one another with instances of instant gratification
And your family,
Shares nothing with you but your blood.
You love yet hate each other the most,
You each hold a key to your closets filled with skeletons and holy ghosts
But keep it locked up until you are provoked.
So as a result,
You learn what was already taught.
Mother always knows best
She wasn’t making this up when she told you to stay away.
Generations of ancestral knowledge
Travel through the blood and veins of time
Vibrations don’t lie
They time travel to speak higher truths
So find guidance in this spiritual alliance
Or the results will make you delirious.
A little girl woke up one day in a state of shock as she realizes,
She must break up with society
Because it’s not me,
It’s you that’s been killing us.
She stands physically tall but her spirit is what’s kneeling her
So I tell her,
This superpower is the reason they will never defeat us.
Like the comic book call us marvelous,
Our struggles may be different
But we often forget what we all share in common.
Intuition is a bitch
But that is only because she is unapologetically honest.
Yet even when it appears identically familiar
We still do the exact opposite.
Don’t confuse intuition with judgment
When intuition gives you a call,
You start feeling butterflies all in your stomach.
Not because love is in the air,
But because your adrenaline finally starts talking.
Your blood starts rushing
Your heart starts pumping
Your mind is racing
And you begin perspiring.
You don’t want it to be true
But these feelings make you ready to turn violent
It doesn’t matter if you knew all along,
Intuition is screeching at you for what seems to be years of silence
So now you must break free
And reveal all that you’ve been hiding.
You are now the lead role in this movie,
Starring the insecure, crazy woman with a resting face that is never happy.
Everybody’s greatest scape goat, punching bag, and blow-up doll.
An unrecognized private investigator,
You put two and two together
But when all is said and done
It is still somehow our fault
We should have known better
Because the signs were there from the start.
Stop thinking with your mind and your heart
Intuition is your only friend
She will never break you apart.
One day you will be the one to wake up and realize
She’s the only one you should’ve listened to,
For she is never wrong.
