    Women hold these truths to be self evident....

    show me that
    -in this relationship-
    is where
    you want
    to continue to be
    not some mental health facility's
    diagnosed version of
    a lover's co-dependency
    I'm not in this
    ish alone;
    can't do all
    things by myself,
    I want you
    to show up soon
    and be accountable
    for yourself~
    your actions
    your decisions
    the things you want to do
    the places you want to go
    take some responsibility for
    it all
    I am here to assist
    you in getting there,
    You'll know that I am your
    ROCK OF GIBRALTER
    a confident, strong,
    secure, independent
    sista
    who wants to love
    and encourage you -
    all of these things I would
    not do, if I didn't see
    .......GOD in you.....
    I depend on you brotha,
    to work through your issues
    and clear them to make
    your own way
    I'll hold you up on high
    declaring my love for
    you -
    I'll clap my hands
    in support of you -
    when you finally learn and discover
    that you have a natural ability to
    move the earth
    and shake the world
    that surrounds us
    until we die
    I'll fill you with the
    love you need
    to soothe and comfort you
    in times of grief,
    or when you
    suffer discouragement and pain-
    but acknowledge me
    as your foundation ~
    the one the Creator
    created for you
    in which to share all things...
    to get what we've got
    we have to work hard
    to keep us together, just
    to keep our lives and love
    in tact
    to move forward
    past now through to forever
    brotha, I depend on you to "give back"
    keep your focus on "our" vision
    the outlook for our future
    which we planned initially~
    a love like ours doesn't come
    often and Lord knows ours
    didn't get here easily
    continue to openly communicate
    be honest, forthright and
    trustworthy
    I will do the same for
    you and no you won't
    ever have to fear or even
    worry
    I'll pray a little
    more for our overall well-being
    because brotha I depend
    on you in this relationship-
    and when I say that
    it's most definitely
    not meant to be misinterpreted
    moreover... I am not lying or misleading

    N2mysoul - she got

    I must honestly say,
    If I knew more ladies in my city
    who thought/felt/spoke the way You ladies
    here do... I would not be so lonely.

    Ms.Soul ( it is still Ms. , isn't it ?- lol )
    this was what soooooo, sooo ,soooooooooooo
    many young black men pray to hear from
    a young lady -
    You've read the minds of millions,
    I thank you.

    ( I just wish your sistah's felt the same way )
