    Got an open agenda, that's no lie!
    I got to have myself together while
    I am flying high!
    No time for dead weight and fair
    weather friends, not the time to
    make committments to committment
    phobic men!
    Got a new way of walking with a strut
    that says "I am!"...anything I want to
    be with or without that man!
    Had our plans all laid out, but you had
    a hidden agenda...riding on my coatails
    so you didn't have to work as hard.
    Every body has to make their mark in
    life that's what makes it your own...
    Tired of feeling sick and tired , and
    tired of feeling alone.
    Alone when you are a couple , sucks
    the big "Grapefruit!"...trying to make
    this thing work I think is just no use.
    400 miles away from me you say your
    being faithful, but when I need you
    most of all you coming off most hateful.
    Now after all the roundtrip flights that
    you ill could not afford you should be
    grateful...but when I say I have to
    go to a Benefit ball and need an
    escort you say it's an excuse to be
    unfaithful. Now everybody who knows
    me , knows "I am a Grown *** woman!"
    who doesn't mind speaking her mind
    and if I want another man he won't
    be hard to find. I am thinking big chile
    publishing and buying homes and
    Mutual funds and retiring in style...
    But, you don't seem to get it as
    I clean up my act, and I get you off
    my back...like a bad habit or an old
    pair of shoes, you are either holding
    me back or no longer fit...I don't have
    time for that ****...Not gonna say yes
    to things that I should be saying no.
    Am not going anyplace I don't want
    to go. Not biting my tongue on issues
    of concern. I am going to go for all
    the gusto...you should watch and learn.
    I thought you were my equal, but it
    is plain to see, that you are only half
    until you get with me! Now let me tell
    you truly that is not how life should be
    no one wants a half a man...and certainly
    not me...you don't want half a woman
    and that is not what I be...Whole complete
    assured and strong...steering straight and
    going it on my own..yeah Wedding bells
    could still be ringing but I don't know if it's
    with US...I can sell the Wedding dress and
    you can have the ring...maybe then you can
    pay for something...the trips , the dinners
    the gifts that do not come...the phone calls
    the effort, it was all me! And now that I
    have cleaned out the closet I can clearly see!
    There are other things to take in store like my
    attitude and so much more...HAPPINESS and
    PEACE of MIND, and taking pounds off this
    round behind...getting the most for my money
    and spreading my talent like honey!
    Spare time and money that I spent
    on you my dear can
    be spread out like Christmas cheer through
    my volunteering and advocating...no more
    tears and no more waiting...it's alright don't
    cry for me...I am feeling light as air you see.
    Not selfish but I have got to take care of me.
    Or what the hell would be left of me?
    The hanger's represent hanger's on...who
    are never there when it really counts, but
    oh when the gravy train comes in...never
    have you seen so many friends! They must
    go too..."NO MORE WIRE HANGERS!"
    Dresses that are out of style , like outdated
    ideas and old fashioned principals that no
    longer apply...don't fake it , we all believed
    the lie "Some day your Prince will come!"
    NOT! Plastic bags from dry cleaners...why?
    don't lie...you don't know why! Just because
    you might need it? For what? Like that man
    or girlfriend who never quite seems necessary
    just there in case! The Victoria Secret from your
    Ex-Husband all Satin and Lace, every time you
    put it on you see that "Rat Bastard's face"!
    Let it go...give it away...buy you something new
    they have a sale "TODAY!" So now that the closet
    is clean and neat I look at the pile laying at my feet
    one is for the garbage and one for giveaway!
    And 2003...I am going on a Shopping Spree!
    And fill my closet with "Good and Useful Things for
    me!"

    Thanks you are so supportive!

    I am always one to give the second the third chance as God has instructed us to do...but when we have done all we can do then we can't do anymore. And we must first and foremost take care of ourselves and our business...So for sure I am going to do what what I have to do!

    Blessings on Your house!
