    Listening to the sista's on Saturday night.
    We are sipping Margarita's the fella's are
    watching the fight. I hear a slight rumble as
    the ladies begin to grumble and the age ole
    conversation begins...
    "Can we trust these mens?"
    I don't like the flow , I get ready to go,
    but instead I take the time to set the record
    straight...before it is everlasting to late!
    How can you fix your mouth to say that you
    cannot let that brotha stay cause he "Might"
    stray...not because he did, but because he
    might! "GOOD NIGHT!"
    What in the world did you say
    girl?

    Now I have heard it all and surely you know
    you have more on the ball. And let's don't go
    with the "All men are Dogs!" cause I will
    send your *** out with the London fog.

    How can I say I don't trust you?
    I breathe your breath every night.
    I hold you tight when things are not
    right and you squeeze my hand when I
    agonize, don't you realize ...MY MAN!
    Sista your doubt
    gives me things to think about, things that
    I shouldn't be thinking about, no room for
    your contagious doubt!

    My momma said that the one who does not
    trust cannot be trusted, so where does that
    leave you sista's sittin here doubting and
    mistrusting ya mista
    If I can't trust you???????????????
    Let's take a time out, something for
    you to think about, love is not
    conditional, it's unconditional.
    And trust like love is provisional,
    this is why my heart is full with
    wonderment you give what you
    get it's original!

    I drink from the same cup as you
    and eat the same food as you do.
    Bathe in the same tub as you do.
    We share fluids and babies and families
    and you know how we do...
    MY MAN!
    If I can't trust you????????
    Then who?

    So my sista if you cannot trust your man
    what does it say about you...
    If I can't trust you????????
    Then who?

    Speak on it, sista...represent and let other sistas know that they shouldn't count us out before the race even begins.

    And, make them think about their actions...and motives.

    Nice....

    Thanks I am probably kicked out of the club of the sista's!

    The message was from personal experience but I know it didn't make the sista's happy but most of the time I just don't care, not that I don't care about peoples feelings but I know truth is the main thing!
    Blessings On ya House!:D

    Ms Lb

    I'm feeling this here...all points taken. Sometimes the opinions of others can be contagious.

    You stated in your piece, the one who doesn't trust cannot be trusted. I believe this is true. But what if a woman was trusting in a relationship and abuse of that trust caused her to have doubt about all men. Even though this is a personal issue that she'd need to handle, can you still say that because she doesn't trust that she can't be trusted?

    Personally speaking, I don't think so.

    my personal issue
