    For you I ended my season of virtrue
    Assuming the rhymes of love were true
    Expecting the sacrifice of the pure
    To ensure our sweet love would endure
    At least till we fulifilled every girl's dream
    The one with the hubby,wife and kids theme

    But somehow we got our steps misalign
    And now I'm counting my monthes to nine
    Sitting on the church pew looking out of place
    While the saints shake their heads in disgrace
    The scarlet letter imprinted upon by breast
    While you stand back and stare with the rest

    But oh how I thank God for his amazing grace
    And the strength He gives to run this race
    And I truly thank God for the lesson learned
    I wouldn't trade it for all the money earned
    For as a new life grows deep inside of me
    I grow in knowledge that will help me be...

    I grow steadfast and determined to be right
    Gaining a brand new perspective and insight
    I now know on whom I should really depend
    Jesus, who will always be there in the end
    In the mist of mess, He stands by my side
    That is why in CHRIST I will always reside

    Thank you all for the love. It is easier to express my emotions in poetry. Otherwise i would keep it all in and explode
