    *disclaimer* Before you read this please note that this is being written by the little girl inside of me and this is just a way for the Young lady I am now to release this pent up anger and let this animosity go....so in all...i have forgiven but not forgotten.




    Look at me now
    all grown up
    I don't need you

    But in the beginning
    all i tried to do
    was please you

    hoping
    wishing
    praying
    and saying to god
    PLEASE
    just make him
    come back here
    cause times is hard

    BUT
    now i know that
    i really didn't need to
    cause
    whatever i did
    when i did it
    didnt mean two
    sh*ts to you

    but i made it through
    and found a way
    my mother always
    had my back anyway

    speaking of which
    she doesnt really
    need you either
    cause all you really
    wanted to do
    was leave her

    you had a kid
    and you didn't
    pretend to care
    and now you're
    crying to my momma
    from a jail cell

    that's what you get
    you deserve this
    no care no calls
    no goodnight kiss

    you up and left
    and lost respect
    you acted like
    my momma wasn't
    doing her best

    when everything she did
    she did for us
    even those things she
    didn't want to do
    she did it for US

    because

    that's love...
    something you know
    nothing about
    or maybe you do
    but not for your girl
    and your own child

    you got love for
    that green
    that mess that got
    your triflin self
    that ten to fifteen.

    I bet you're sorry now
    you say you're praying
    wow...
    you should have done that
    before you got
    locked down

    now our relationships bad
    and its so sad
    that i am never gonna have
    a dad

    but i don't need you
    and she don't need you
    now so we don't need you
    Cause we will always
    make it through....


    I FORGIVE YOU





    ignorance leads to more ignorance....lets end that cycle
