    Is love blind
    Or is it the waste of a woman time
    To get involved with a man
    Who doesn’t understand
    The basis of a true relationship
    Who doesn’t know what is meant
    When you say you are together
    Thinking he can say or do whatever
    To the point of raising his hand
    Worse yet his fist
    I’m not trying to be feminist
    But don’t take me for weak
    I got a voice
    And I ain’t afraid to speak up
    For myself or anybody else
    That’s being knocked down
    By the sound of a man raising his voice
    Ladies we have a choice
    Of staying or not
    And you wonder how you got
    That black eye
    Or why
    You continue to cry
    If you don’t leave the man
    Of course you gon go through
    The same thing again and again
    Honey child you can’t win
    Cuz he ain’t gon change over night
    Why should you continue to fight for your life

    once again,
    you have exceeded.
    above the skies,
    i can barely believe it.
    you make your point,
    so very clear.
    your words,
    i now can hear.
    tell me how,
    you make your words come to be.
    i read them,
    and feel as if i float on the see.
    i wish i could write,
    like you do.
    but i guess i can't,
    becuz i'm me and you're u.
    it's so amazin,
    how well you can write.
    man if u was a rapper,
    you'd wreck shop on da mic................(LOVED IT TRULY!!!!)
