    I close my eyes
    and I wonder why...
    WHY
    did I allow you into my life...
    WHY
    once again I have allowed a man
    to make me feel like I owe him something
    just because I came from the right side of the tracks
    just because I was loved
    just because I know the meaning of love and how to love...
    WHY
    once again did I allow myself to get used...
    WHY
    did I step down from my pedestal
    just to allow you to call me spoiled
    just because I am an adult
    just because I handle grown folks business like grown folks are supposed to do...
    WHY
    do you feel that I should not spoil myself
    I worked for it... hell
    I dont have any kids...
    WHY
    do you feel like I should support you
    and or feel sorry for you because you pay too much child support
    Sorry to inform you
    Brotha
    Just like you I am coming up short
    Because I have bills to pay...
    WHY
    do you feel that I should sacrifice getting my hair done
    or a new outfit
    so you can get a new video game, dvd, cd, anything
    to take my money away from ME
    when its not MY fault
    you didnt have the sense God gave you
    to stop sticking your d*ck up in that same ol raggedy *****
    as you call her
    and impregnating her ***
    Are or aren't they your kids this week...
    WHY
    do you wonder how I can repeatedly say
    I cant wait to get you and your dysfunction out of my life
    Are you serious?
    You question my use of the word dysfunction
    Brotha
    Your pictures in the dictionary underneath the **** word...
    WHY
    now that you're gone
    am I still talking about you
    When you are so far beneath me
    It strains my back too stoop down to your level
    Seeing as how you are the most f*cked up individual
    that I have ever met
    or ever care to meet for that matter
    Only makes me thank God
    that I was loved....or spoiled as you call it
    I can't be...
    Wont be...
    Have not...
    Am not...
    stuck on you
    Because you my dear
    Are already stuck on stupid
    Goodbye

    We were better off when all we needed was a J-O-B.

    Sista, you laid it all out. Now, let me get this straight, you're spoiled cause you have enough money to take care of you, but not quite enough to take care of him too? Please... Wishing you greener pastures. Tight flow you posed here.

    I feel you

    That was awesome you put alot of things that I've dealt with into unmistakeable words. A few brothers confuse having a family that loved you, took care of you and could afford the finer things of life as being spoiled. They often times come at me as being a sellout because I maintain myself, not realizing I'm not asking them to maintain me. I am a sellout because I'm educated. I am really feeling this piece. Great flow. I'm glad you moved on!

    Thanks for commenting molasis. glad a sister knows where I am coming from. cause I definitely aint asking no man to support me...though it would be nice lol. but one thing that I realized through this whole thing and my prior experiences is 1. the family background of a person does mean alot, usually if they come from instability they will be unstable themselves. 2. a man shouldnt ask you for nothing that he is capable of doing himself. 3. taking pity on a person does not mean you should be in a relationship with them
