What This World Wants From Women

Baby, free your mind, show [me] some love,
Baby, free your mind, show [the] world some love,
Baby, free your mind, show [yourself] some love,

Stop reading this week’s Cosmopolitan,
Stop reading this week’s Seventeen,

Listen to my words,
Focus on the beat…

[I] am not holy, nor full of shit, don’t mistake my words for commandments,
[It] is your body, wear what you want to wear, be fly, be pretty, make-up on [fleek]
[Just] be smart, understand what this world seeks, wants from you, asks from you,

[It] doesn’t want educated women, both intellectually sexy and physically brilliant,
[All] society seeks, wants, and wishes for is [a] sex object, [a] barbie, [a] plaything for CEO’s to rape,
[So] be smart, climb and never stop, when you receive one PhD, go for another, force them to call you Doctor,

Baby, free your mind, show [me] some love,
Baby, free your mind, show [the] world some love,
Baby, free your mind, show [yourself] some love,

[I] see you are confused, so let me paint a crystal clear Mona Lisa,
[This] story begins with a young Michelle, her dream was too be the first woman to land on Mars,
[But] her parents replied, ‘what is wrong with being a nurse or a teacher. You have to be a realistic.’

[Instead] of listening to her parents, Michelle shot for the stars, dreamed of being the first Mars settler,
[She] learned the hard way, it takes blood, sweat, and tears, failure, sometimes several, in order to fly,
[Do] you understand? This world seeks pretty slaves, it doesn’t want intelligent mothers or daughters,

Baby, free your mind, show [me] some love,
Baby, free your mind, show [the] world some love,
Baby, free your mind, show [yourself] some love,

Michelle’s eyes rose,
We were eye to eye,

As we gazed out watching waves crash upon the beach,
We knew both casualties and survivors would wash upon the shore,
