    D*mn
    How do I keep finding myself in these situations?
    Stuck between a hard and a harder place
    Same ‘ol grind in another place and another time
    Caught between a love I have history with and one which intrigues me
    Choose already!!!
    If it only it were that simple and free of consequences
    History is a good person and we’ve been together all these years
    But I think all these years is all we have
    And Mystery’s smile ignites a fire within me that I thought was long extinguished
    And I want to know him, in more than just the Biblical sense
    New/Old, Old/New
    What the hell should I do?
    Should I choose History over Mystery?
    I could be dramatic and be like, “I choose me!”
    I'm already choosing me though, I'm choosing my happiness
    <Smile> Truth be told, I guess I’m just scared to start over and
    History is comfortable, like a warm blanket and hot cocoa at Christmas
    But Mystery is exotic, erotic, exciting…and risky
    Like a roller coaster ride in the dark
    Never been a big risk-taker
    That’s my dilemma
    History vs. Mystery, an old debate
    No clear-cut answer
    I could be hurt either way…I’m tired of this grind
    If History is destined to repeat itself…then my choice is Mystery
    What you don’t know can’t hurt you
    Right?

    sound like me stuck between what is and what can be
    sometime history repeats itself as the mystery is mysterious

    often times history u know well
    as to a mystery u feel to learn
    both are risky indeed and both can please
    whoa what a squeeze

    the debate from between
    what's not known can hurt
    i'll let u answer this work
    that ya heart already know

    what a mixture of flow Nap...

    Hey Nap,
    First and formost I'm compelled to say "Welcome Back" sis...you've been missed.

    Your words "I Choose Me" jumped out boldly. For you've choosen life..in chosing "you" ...
    It elimentates ...repeating HISTORY,
    and
    It stimulates ...future MYSTERY.

    *because as quiet as it's kept..."What you don't know can hurt you*

    This is an Original piece of art, I like that! I enjoyed reading it.
    You're a young wise Queen...big Ups to ya.

    Thank you Rich and Queen.

    Queen, I've missed the family as well. Good to be back. I'm settled in Alabama now, and have access to the Internet, which was what was keeping me from being on here.

    As usual, I love sharing my current conflict or small moments of humor with the family. Stay up Black People!

    Life may not be as interesting if it came with a playbook, but perhaps we would hurt a lot less. Do what your gut instincts tell you, and keep all of those senses open. Tight write.

    was history once mystery?

    Cause,sometimes relationships can
    become dull and we simply need
    to try new things to birth life back
    into it. I would make sure that isn't
    the case. Before moving to greener
    grass that might end up being artificial

    I enjoyed the history/mystery concept

    nice write
