    I've been hurt before
    So I don't know why I ignore
    The signs that present themselves before me
    So obvious
    You are laughing at me
    I don't know why I've kept going on like this
    Choosing the wrong men
    For me
    And always being jealous
    As I see happy couples
    And other women's men
    Like, why can't I have this?
    I'm tired
    I'm so tired of regret
    I'm so tired of making wrong choices
    I'm so tired of this mess!
    When will the right one come to me?
    Seems like a needle in a hay stack
    Or maybe I'm blind to see
    I know who I am
    And my worth
    I know that I am loved
    And that I need to be with someone else
    I feel so alone and desperate right now
    Sometimes it's too much to bare
    Don't I deserve the best?
    Don't I deserve to be happy and free?
    Don't I deserve to enjoy love
    Loving me?
    These questions I ask myself day after day
    And wonder why
    I end up this way
    Wonder why I keep holding on to stupid dreams
    Wonder why I keep loosing
    Is there one good man out there for me?
    Is there one good man who knows how to treat me right?
    Love's himself?
    And wants to do right?
    Is there one good man out there who has goals set and is accomlishing?
    Is there one good man out there who isn't afraid to please?
    Is there one?
    Lord, I pray you find me one
    I don't want to be alone like this
    Sometimes I often feel lonely even if I'm in a relationship
    Save me from myself
    Just want to be loved
    Just want to be cared for by someone else
    Just want to be
    Be that someone special
    Why can't I have those things?
    Why not me?
    Why not she?
    Suffering quietly
    I don't trust anyone I used to
    Broken promises
    And unforgiveness is what I have become used to
    No one to share with me
    Or talk to me
    Am I important to anybody?
    Does anyone even need me or want me?
    Is there the slightest possibilty just want to know
    So I can stop envying
    So I can stand tall
    I've almost given up on me
    I just don't know
    Anymore I try to ignore love
    Still you can't run from it
    It just keeps smiling in my face
    But it's left without a trace

    i know
    you feel lonely and full of pain but allow God to be your main
    center of attention

    i know
    that it is when you are not looking, God is, and He has already found what you long for..
    Seek God only and love yourself queen.......

    you have more treasures to discover within and it begins with your prayer, your peace and your pen.

    sista i felt this one

    girl

    you have talent ;)

    songwriting skills

    you know the lord has bigger
    and better things in store for you
    right now

    so be glad you are still alive

    so be glad you are still in good health

    so be glad you are still able to write

    it's when we get over ourselves and
    keep our sights on GOD our spirit is
    replenished

    always remember Corinthians 13:4-8

    love is patient and kind; love is not
    JEALOUS or boastful; it is not arrogant
    or rude. love does not INSIST on its on
    way; it is not IRRITABLE or RESENTFUL;
    it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices
    in the right. love bears all things, hopes
    all things, endures all things. love never
    ends...


    as you reach the mark toward graduating
    from college keep these words close to
    your heart and do not sell yourself out or
    short for anyone but let everything you do
    be b/c GOD said it was so

    let him guide you and show you the way :heart:
