    I got tested the other day
    Got my test results today
    Three long days
    And three sad ones
    Alone
    Just all alone
    In my bed thinking back on
    My life, the days, the good and bad ones
    The past, future, and present lonely ones

    A few months ago I was happy
    Real happy
    Had a man by my side and a baby in my belly
    My life, hum, my life was so gully
    I had it going on, and all my friends envied me

    Well, what made me go get tested?
    What made me go get tested?
    What made me go get tested?
    I'll tell you what made me go get tested

    Well, I heard about this girl
    This girl that thought her man was her world
    I mean [email protected], she thought he was her world
    She cooked, cleaned, and did everything for this man
    And she even gave him her hand
    I mean sistah thought she had it all with this man
    And a bag of sand
    But she was so mistaking
    One morning she was feeling alright and
    The next morning she felt like she had the flu and
    Seven years from that morning she was dead and
    I had to reevaluate my life by praying
    As I looked over at you laying
    Shoot, where were you the other night and two nights before that? Who were you ********?
    It wasn’t me, so don’t be lying!!!


    Then I heard about this man who broke up with his girl for a week
    She had cheated on him but he couldn’t do without her, he was weak
    He got back with her even though he knew she was a freak
    Two weeks later she was back chasing the meat
    But this time he was wise, he couldn’t take it no more, he wouldn’t go down in defeat
    But it’s too late he had already contracted it, and he
    Was just another black man added to the statistics
    So again I look at you and I know you aren’t perfect
    And by no means terrific
    You got another baby mama so did you get back with ole chick?
    I want to know did you **** another brick
    Cause I did leave you about three weeks ago
    Only to take you back about a week ago
    That was enough chance to do about two to five hits


    How about ole girl that didn’t know her man was a undercover
    I mean, her man had another lover
    A MAN lover
    As his partner
    But came back home to her every night confessing his love to her
    I mean, he even had the nerve to ***** her
    To impregnate her
    With a daughter
    And the mother, the girl, couldn’t have been happier
    Until she found out the father
    Had given it to her, and even worst, her unborn daughter
    I mean [email protected], what if you had it and it got to my son or daughter?
    Would I want to have her?
    Would I want to have her?
    Would I?


    That’s why I got tested
    I got tested because of you
    I got tested only to find out that I got HIV from you
    Through you
    How could I let myself be fooled by you?
    Well, I guess I’m not the only fool
    Because every man or woman in those stories was blinded
    Blinded by love and close minded
    I asked you before we got together if you were infected
    You DENIED it
    You DENIED it
    You DENIED it
    I guess I was the fool because I believed it
    It was like a contract with the devil, I signed it
    But now I deny it
    Because now I have to tell my family
    And close friends just what you did to me
    I have to confront the people at my job and hopefully they won’t discriminate against me
    All because you, you cheated me
    So today I got tested
    Yeah I got tested
    And the it took away the rest of me
    My soul
    My spirit
    And my pride, it took me

    This was so powerful, your words struck like bullets. But better to get blown away with words, then to get blown away by life. And if just one person should learn a lesson in this, then you are even more awesome than we already know you are. The highest of props to you on this lil sis, the highest.

    Once again, baby girl, you have broken down reality into small pieces and slapped em under a microscope. What a great flow, and it's the truth. So good to read you again - it's been a few weeks.

    I'm one of your biggest fans.

    Thanks ya'll. I got the inspiration from this piece surprisingly by watching BET. They are doing this national campaign called "wrap it up." And I thought that it would be good to help out with the cause, you know. Thanks family for truly feeling my words. Much love to each and every one of you. Black Power!!!
