    As a friend I feel compelled to let you know
    The way you going is not you
    I see you pourin' your
    Heart, soul, mind and spirit
    Into a nobody who does not care
    For or about you

    Its making me upset and I try to hold it
    But I'm about ready to :explode:
    Because his antics are getting old

    I just want you to :ref: stop
    And think about the old beautiful soul
    You used to be
    The one who used to :teach: me

    :time: is running out on your life
    And I know you don't want to be his wife
    So get :hulk: my friend and take back your life
    You know its the only way to make things right

    And one more thing you still never let him see you :cry:
    Even though sometimes his words made you want to die
    So come back to me because i really :missu:
    And you know full well the man has way to many :deal: issues

    I was talking to myself on this one because sometimes the best motivation is self motivation.

    Sometimes we may forget just how worthy we are...who better to remind ourselves, than, ourselves. I appreciated this positively charged drop.
