"Thick" by Sonya Renee

I continue to be amazed
How my curvy hips and heavy breasts manage
to make men
See nothing less than sex
In their interaction with me
Whether summer dress cute or business suit
Their eyes be watching God in my thighs
Despite my intellectual bearings
Men be only hearing moans and sighs
In our conversations about secret societies
and presidential lies
But I know why

It's cause I'm THICK
Like molasses
Pouring slow out of that bottle
Onto your mind, saturating you with poetic
time
And with every word I coat your brain
Yet you're still only able to watch the way
I pour from that bottle

I am THICK
Like your Aunt Sarah's pound cake
Sweet, sweet, lip smacking sweet
Filled with sooo many enticing ingredients that
You never bother to ask about
Given that you only want to eat
SLOW DOWN BABY
Check the recipe
You might be allergic to the eggs, vanilla, flour
Charisma, abstract eccentricity, power
And I don't want you to get sick

Cause I am THICK
Like eight year old black girl hair be
You want to put lye to me
Put dye to me
Slap on a just for me
Unwillingly I yell
"Stop trying to change my natural state!"
I am so THICK
In jeans it's like I was born the color of denim
But if you stared as intently at my thoughts
As you do at my thighs
Maybe one day you might
Be able to get in them
But I doubt it

You fail to realize that
I'm not just hourglass THICK
Lots of class THICK
Not to be sarcastic but I died
Was resurrected last week
So as a poet, I am past sick
And you need to know this

The American College Dictionary states that
THICK means
"Numerous, abundant, plentiful"
Having a lot of whatever's around
It also states that THICK means dense, deep,
profound
And in an average interaction
It is certain that I am bound to be described as
THICK
While that description might fit like these
jeans on my behind
It is well beyond time you realize THICK also
describes my mind

See these hips you watch are curvy wide as
God knew
I would need to birth enigmatic knowledge like
How she can be both Father and Son at the
same time
Seated at his own right hand side
These heavy breasts would someday feed
worlds wisdom
Hold secrets they confide nestled at my chest
The softness of my thighs flesh would
Give my wounded warrior
A quiet knight's rest
So my God made them THICK
He laced my words with wind so each utterance
Might sail swiftly into spirits and manifest
through pens
My sins will be a road map to the promised land
So it is essential insight that you comprehend
That while your thinking may be thin
I am THICK
Like reading the Bible from beginning to end
Like the thirty poems I'll write that may never
score tens
Like the wilderness that landscapes the roads
where I've been
Like that burning Phoenix
I will rise again
Cause I am THICK
So whether you watch the way
I sway or I pray
Or lay these words that I spit
Recognize the Divine has blessed you
To receive a slice of it
Cut THICK
As an extra added gift
A glass of cute to wash it all down with
So the next time
You find it hard to draw the line
Between my mind and my behind
Recollect these words and realize
My Creator made me multiply defined
As ........THICK!!!!

That just might have change me.. no... really!

I have not read much poetry at all but this golden.

Thanx for sharing with us "thick " and thin ones.

aww this made my day! the best things a poem can do are to convict and inspire! when you say you changed~are you referencing the fact that you have changed into someone who wants to read poetry? or that you are now into thick girls? lol
