    I've been listening to my brothers' compliants concerning you
    And now that I understand his plight I believe this note is overdue
    For just as you don't like to pay for other sisters' past trangressions
    He doesn't want to be held accountable for someone else's indiscretion
    He understands that other brothers left your heart broken and exposed
    He's willing to be the vessel that heals the wounds that another imposed
    However he will not allow you to crucify him for the sins of your last lover
    Hence you got to close the door on your past and understand that it's over
    And judge him on the merit of his own actions without the bias of the past
    For how will you ever meet mr. right if you judge them all to be like the last
    I hear you saying only fools are twice bitten and momma didn't raise no fool
    But sister why not use the knowlege learned from the experience as a tool
    Instead of using it to build walls of protection, use it as a selection guidebook
    And then maybe you will be able to give that good brother a real honest look
    Always interested in the one who is consistently as high as a giraffe's neck
    Never the one who's moves beyond the hip-hop lifestyle to a 9 to 5 paycheck
    Sisters, to get what you never had then you got to do what you never done
    So before you say there are no good mates out there, make sure you are one

    This is a splendid write and so very true.
    Its always so much easier to blame someone
    else instead of looking in the mirror. I know sometimes
    its rough out here for the sista's but
    I know the brotha's are encountering just as much junk too.


    "to get what you never had then you got to do what you never done"

    Now that's some real talk right there.



    Much Luv

    Scared to hurt again, we all experience that fear, and while we're holding onto that, we may miss out on the love of a life time. This is the truth, poetically sprayed. ^5 on this one.
