Mary J. Blige is the Queen of Hip Hop Soul, Does My Lyric Express That?

One morning I was reading articles about Mary J. Blige’s current divorce dilemma, and I also read articles and watched video interviews about her life and her thoughts and opinions, and then I started listening to her music. I was feeling her pain, but I was also recognizing her strength and talent. How dare any man try to take her for everything that she has. Coming from where she came from and building herself into the “Queen of Hip Hop Soul” has nothing to do with Kendu. So, starting from a poem and then turned into a lyric, this is my gift to Mary J. Blige. Now, if only she knew I existed. LOL!

WITH EVERY SONG, written by ME: Copyright 2017 with the Library of Congress of the United States of America.

Each song I own
I own up to this feeling in my soul
A treasure map to lead me to the gold
Never under sold
Never growing old
With faith I’m staying bold
I’ll never fold

I used to live alone inside myself
Now with every song
I share with someone else

With every song I bring it home
With every song I ebb and flow
They call me queen of hip hop soul
And I’m not letting go

Up on the stage
This love I carry kills the rage
The hot lights work me till it rains
Gold and platinum chains
Never earned in vain
My songs of joy and pain
Don’t sound the same

I used to live alone inside myself
Now with every song
I share with someone else

With every song I bring it home
With every song I ebb and flow
They call me queen of hip hop soul
And I’m not letting go

When I started
I stepped out on faith.
Took everything I had
and bet it on my name.
Gambled on myself
for shame or fame.

Now every song I sing
Lights a flame in me.
And this torch
I’ll always carry.

With every song I bring it home
With every song I ebb and flow
They call me queen of hip hop soul
And I’m not letting go

Don’t care how rough it gets
I’m not through yet
And, I’m not letting go
No, I’m not letting go
