    In my short lifetime
    I've learned a few things
    About each kind of male
    And what each of them brings

    Now the first of these
    Is that one we call boy
    He's usually cute and sometimes even sweet
    But this one seems to think your heart is a toy
    He'll make you laugh and feel so good
    You'll have more fun then you thought that you could
    As things progress, you begin to want more
    But he doesn't understand what you are looking for
    You find that you want deep conversation and to cuddle
    And you see that the boy is no deeper than a puddle
    He starts to piss you off and you soon realize
    That there is no more to this one then what meets the eyes

    The second of the 3 happens to be a N*gga
    He's not really interested in you, but moreso in your figure
    His primary goal is to "get in those jeans"
    And he's willing to do this by any and all means
    Yeah, this one is trouble so girls please beware
    Cuz he will try to deceive u and make u think that he cares
    He'll try to convince you to give him some of that cat
    And then makes you feel like you're wrong for denying him that
    Yeah, this is one whose trifling ways never end
    Cuz when he gets tired of trying, he's going after your best friend
    Don't even bother getting mad, it's a waste of your time
    Cuz a N*gga never has remorse for his crimes

    Now a man, he's the one of every girl's dreams
    He knows just how to treat his woman like a queen
    His good qualities always outnumber his faults
    And his kiss alone can bring your breath to a hault
    He's a special one that's hard to find
    He always makes you feel like you are one of a kind
    He has respect for your mind body and soul
    And when the time is right he knows when to take control
    He genuinely cares for you and makes sure that it shows
    And he wouldn't mind if the whole world was to know
    See this one is not at all like a boy
    He won't play with your heart like a cheap little toy
    And a N*gga is a piece of trash in his eyes
    He wants you for more than what's between your thighs
    So watch out for the boys and the N*ggas as well
    And when you find a man believe me you can tell.

    I've been all three at different points in time...and had tendencies of each at the same time. Very nice...and very honest.

    Yeah this was an inspiring piece, would you mind if I wrote a female's version to this?

    A girl, a ***, and a woman
    inspired by:Carameldlite

    Very Nice flow

    Welcome to Destee

    One has no depth, not deep at all.

    Another is the set-up for a fall.

    The last is one like you said. Will be there thru good times and bad and not had to see and find.

    Open eyes will see what they are looking at. A closed mind will fool the eyes and heart. When all three in turn do what their functions are as one, you unlock seldom seen and felt treasures of love.
