    • POEM: 50-50 by Langston Hughes (4/15/2010 11:30:00 AM)

      I love this poem, as a single woman just out of a relationship with a jobless man. I tried so hard to hold on and keep him so I wouldn't be like the woman in this poem, 'I aint got no man, ' but what I didn't realize is that keeping one was pretty costly, not only financially but emotionally too. It is draining being with someone who only sees you for their personal gain/convenience. The woman in this poem doesn't have a head because she doesn't have a man. She is stupid (don't have a head) because she doesn't realize that it is not she without a man, it is a man without her. Once a person begins to value themselves, truly value themselves from within, they will always be valued by others. Women, and some men too, you are a treasure! The more you treasure and value yourself, the more you will be wanted, but the slimmer your romantic pickings will be, because your standards will instantly raise to not wanting just anybody. And not just anybody can get you because not everybody will deserve you. Take it sometimes as a compliment or gift if you are single/alone. Enjoy yourself. Be free. Decide what a mate can do for you, and never settle for less than what you would do for yourself on your best day/night.
