    Gurl, don't you know I love you!
    Ain't that what he said
    Or what you thought he meant
    When he was all upside your head

    Gurl, don't you know I need you!
    Ain't that what he meant
    Collecting debt on jail rhetoric
    Your money on commissary sent

    Gurl, I don't want no other one!
    Ain't that what you heard
    Even though your son
    Is just your first
    But rumored to be his third

    Gurl, don't make me hurt you!
    Like it would be your fault
    That calling him on his manhood
    Would cause him to assault

    Gurl, don’t you know I love you!
    The truth can’t be no lie
    A sister friend I vow to be
    I’ll stand right by your side

    Gurl, don’t you know I need you!
    Good friends are hard to keep
    I can’t stand to hear your cries
    Why he at your house asleep

    Gurl, don’t you know he ain’t the one!
    Ain’t he proven this to you
    How you think this gonna effect your son
    To see all the things he do

    Gurl, don’t let him hurt you!
    Love don’t feel like that
    Swollen eyes
    Broken bones
    Bruises blue and black

    Gurl, leave that boy alone!
    Yeah, boy is what I said
    Cuz’ if that was my man
    By now, he sho’ nuff be dead!

    Gurl, you need a King!
    A Queen he’d treat you so
    I’d just thought I’d tell you
    Cuz’ you act like you don’t know

    Gurl, you ain’t a girl no more
    So, take some grown folx advice
    Leave that boy you call your man
    Move on with your life
    Teach your son to understand
    Love does not hurt nor hit
    Stop this cycle now
    Before another gurl has to deal wit it

    Chile, I know you say you love him
    Scared to let it go
    You can make it sisterfriend, I tell you!
    Cuz’ you act like you don’t know

    “I sho’ nuff loved that woman!”
    That’s what we heard him yell
    “I didn’t mean to kill her!”
    As police dragged him back off to jail

    Gurl, your son is quite the little man
    We teach him love does not hit nor hurt
    Hard to explain his pain from loving you
    While they lowered you into the earth

    Gurl, you know we miss you
    Wish you was alive
    Tried to tell you I’ve been there myself
    Gurl, some of us survive…

    Dayum!!!!!

    I'm sorry, I had to get profane!!!

    I heard you speak this, Roxanne....with allllllll your inflections.....alllllll your emotions rising full-force!!!!! .......and I felt myself welling up inside with the anguish as the truth began to unfold. "Gurl"...was one of the many unfortunate ones who just couldn't let him go.

    I've seen this kind.

    Thank you for brangin it....

    Rox,

    Such a sad reality for some people. This shook my heart. Very sad for the child.....to have both parents taken away. We need to pray for people who are confused about what real love is and that they find it before it's too late.


    Madd Sistahly Love :heart:

    the story you have told

    is sadly a reality for too many...

    and isn't it sad how women in this position will not listen to any advice, even if it comes from a survivor...they have the misconception that they can change "him"...sadly it rarely happens..and another family is torn apart....

    The Knock Down Truth

    Sometimes the hardest thing is to walk away when they ain't your feet to do it...this piece is dedicated to those who have and those who didn't get to.

    Peace & God Bless:kiss:
