    You say he hurt you ?

    You say he caused this potent pain you nurse so

    deeply....

    This angst that's got you all weepy and shattered into a million
    jagged shards like a broken looking glass seen

    deeply....

    Torn apart like so many spent rags tossed assunder used

    deeply....

    Sunk like a ship battled by fiersome storms ?

    But Sister, you have got to love yourself first

    deeply....

    You need to know just how special beautiful intelligent and worthy
    that you are. This must be felt

    deeply.... (by you)

    Before you can expect someone else to treasure you

    deeply.... (because you should be cared for sweetly)

    So dry your tears dear heart
    It's time for self renewal - time for you to learn to appreciate
    all the wonderfullness that's laying dormant hidden inside

    So deeply....

    Be "That Gurl" - let the essence of your soul shine for all the world,
    and most importantly for YOU, to see

    Brightly....

    So that you will never again allow another on God's earth to defeat
    you almost utterly completely and so very

    deeply....

    Umph....wow...you laid this straight. I think we all know this, but it's hard to see it when you're going through the pain associated with being hurt. Superbly posed flow.

    :thanks:Sister Watzinaname, Brother $$Rich$$, and Sis Gempis
    Much appreciation to all of you for visiting my piece. It was inspired
    by a close friend of mine who is going through some "thangs", as we all do
    from time to time..


    Many Blessings,
    Akilah :spinstar:
