As a teenager the poem "Phenomenal Woman" by Maya Angelou made a new gift manifest within Grande’ and her self-love and empowerment crusade was ignited. Grande's poetry got deeper when she saw Eryka Badu’s "On and On" video and her live CD was played around the clock. In 2000, Jill Scott lit a fuse in the poet and the sultry side of Grande’ was set a fire. The depth of Ursula Rucker inspired Grande’ to tap into her talent even more.

Plus Size Divas Movie Trailer
Love is not perfect it is what it is
Be sure you can take what you give
It is what you make it
Karma is real be sure you can take it
It is just life
So many on the search for love in all the wrong ways
Not taking time to love self first so the heart pays
Such a beautiful hurtful thing love is
Not wanting to live through the pain love gives
It sneaks up on you with no warning
Though cold in the end the beginning phase is warming
So much to learn the lessons keep coming
But Ill never give up on love because I know
Knowing the benefits of being in it just take it slow
It alters everything around you
Do things you'd never do
No second thoughts no second guessing
Feels more like a curse than a blessing
It can be everything you need it to be
End up everything you wish it wasn't see
It's amazing in how it knows the difference in how to feel
And thats real
Difference in child and mother
Difference im friend and lover
Feel above the earth
Make you feel beneath the dirt of the earth
Float on air
Desperation and despair
A tricky thing at times
Other times divine
The cause of crimes
People loose control of passion
Not getting love from whom they desire no satisfaction
You have to understand the illusion and know the truth
Never believe words with no proof
Cause lust imitates love often
Never let this prevent your heart to soften
Ill meet love again on that ninth cloud
Keeping true to the promises it vowed
Smiles on my face day and night
Giving it willingly never having to fight
Yes love so pleasant so true
No moments of feeling blue
Loving without ceasing
Loving without fear
And never shedding a tear
Every broken heart mended
Everything the way it's intended
Don't give up on love cause love will never give up on you
