    Been here so many times
    letting others control my state of mind
    feeling elevated, elated
    soon to end springing tears belated
    out of our passion rage created

    but, this is different
    a tiny package heaven sent
    no time to think of me and him
    and the massive time we spent
    forging deep in sin
    forced a life into me
    my body nurturing two
    no longer is one of them you
    you look suprised
    i see it in your eyes
    you think i compromised
    myself and laid down for a few
    and now i don't want you
    i don't want you cause i need a man
    someone who can take a stand
    stop being scared and acting out
    seems you always take the easy route
    can't commit now you admit
    but a father you want to fit
    i ain't no baby mama
    and i revel in bring zero drama
    so the extra things you left about
    pack em up and get out
    my gram was right in what she said
    i should listened while i was ahead
    too late for all the woulda...coulda
    you'll remember all the shoulda's
    when you laying late alone
    trying to forget you'll emit a groan
    and i am taking care of our little one
    the only reason i need to get this done.

    So many sistas are forced to take this route unfortunately. The lusts of the world have uprooted the idea of family. I love this. Thank you

    Do your thang sister.

    Such a sad reoccuring realization that must change, soon.

    Feel this.

    But please let dude do his thing also, even though y'all aren't an item, let him be there 4 the seed, cuz it's not the young one's fault.

    Just do what U do & throw it in his face what he could've had, but stay true 2 yourself.

    it's amazing how a life
    introduced to the equation
    will suddenly put things
    into perspective and give
    us strength to make decisions
    we thought we weren't able
    to make...

    Love the womanly wisdom & strength I find in this piece!

    A new life can bring about so many changes, hopefully more changes for the good down the road perhaps. I like the way you posed this.

    thanks for the support and strength in your words, it means so much to have people in your corner at times like this (at all times really). Many wise things said, trying to do right, mistakes come along the way.
