    Been Around The Block


    I been around the block a few times or more,
    Seen a lot of things, pain and hurt and some
    Loneliness too.

    Been kicked and knocked down “what’s a girl to do”?
    But each time I arise, to stand tall with pride dust my self
    Off and wipe the tears from my eyes.

    I been around the block and up your street too, might
    have been seen by some or trying to hide from a few.
    “Yeah I’ve done some things”, I anin't proud to admit, but I
    thank God they did not allow me to quit.

    I been around a few corners and some alleys to, no matter
    how hard it seemed to get I kept dreaming the dream of
    where I had to get.

    And even though the roads and paths were crocked and few times
    straight, I held on tight to my little bit of faith.

    “Yeah I’ve been around the block”!
    Haven’t you?

    "YEAP"

    Thanks
    Isn't it the truth ! I think that's why so many of us have so much to say about so many things life has brought us, because we have turned a few corners :kiss:


    Hugs you too!!!

    Being there and back are the the things that make up our personalities.

    If we didn't take those ill trips, what would we know?
