    ACCEPTANCE is a voulantary action.....as far as i know
    But if you feel any differently....please do let me know

    Within you i have noticed.....feelings of OBLIGATION
    When it comes to the acceptance....of me and yOUR relations

    Now what it is we have
    I am not quite sure
    But I accept the fact that I care for you
    and that is just to hard to let go
    and with that ACCEPTANCE
    also comes pain
    the pain of knowing...
    that you are NOT obligated to stay

    Now in knowing that
    I assume that your
    being with me
    comes from wihtin
    which is where most have to dig
    to find the ACCEPTANCE
    that you feel you are obligated to give

    Now as I stated before
    ACCEPTANCE is self imposed
    So why would you accept something
    that does not bring you joy?

    if being with me feels more like a requirement
    which you are not willing to fulfill
    then all YOU are obligated to do
    is exactly what you feel

    and as for myself and the roles I have played
    in this thing called ACCEPTANCE..well.......
    I have come back full circle .....
    to the roles of OBLIGATION

    of which i must say i have few

    and that is not to be played as anybodys fool
    which i seemed to be strictly
    for you

    To tolerate or Accept some of the ******** you put me trough
    was just foolish of me to ACCEPTance
    brought onto me by you

    Now if ACCEPTANCE is all about choice
    which one self imposes
    then i ask myself
    "why have i inflicted the pain i feel within"
    (which if i may remind you)
    that you felt OBLIGATED to give?

    So after closely analyzing
    the thin lines between the two
    i have come to the conclusion
    that ACCEPTANCE over rules
    any OBLIGATION one feels they may have
    because ones O.B.L.I.G.A.TIONS can only affect
    those who gain A.C.C....E.P.TANCE for them

    So sistas
    please open your eyes ...WIDE
    to these brothas OBLIGATIONS of lowering you
    to the ACCEPTANCE of thier games and uncertainty

    and just know that
    the only OBLIGATIONS
    that are required of you......

    is to love, respect, cherish, honor
    and ACCEPT Y.O.U!
