    He said
    “You can’t make a housewife out of a ‘ho’”
    This coming from one of
    His favorite rap songs

    And it made me think
    About all his accusations
    About his name calling
    And his expectations

    He never wanted a housewife
    He only wanted a whore
    So he could accuse
    So he could call names

    So he could feel superior
    Always being the one in the right
    So he never had to take her to dinner
    Never had to bring her into the light of his life

    He never wanted a housewife
    He never had anything to give
    For his heart was black as coal
    As dark as a starless night

    He lost his joy a long time ago
    When he made his pact with the devil
    To use women for what they were
    In his eyes just b!tches and ‘ho’s

    He can quote you scriptures
    And make you feel unworthy
    If you listen to him you are nothing
    In his grand scheme of him

    But he will find himself lost, lacking and searching
    For something to make him whole
    For life has not yet brought him
    Down upon his knees

    re:Housewives

    This is a powerful write of a low self esteem man who will forever be alone.
