    for all the headaches and heartaches...ever felt
    all the tears...ever shed and the pain you've held
    inside. deep inside
    you've cried over the many lies
    and false alibis
    men have concocted
    for the opportunity to rock you

    to abuse and misuse you
    and the love you offer
    though, your heart is blue

    but they don't understand
    he didn't understand
    i can't understand why a woman like you
    uniquely beautiful and passionate, too
    why dID you
    settle
    for hand outs
    nights...without
    love that ran out
    it doesn't have to be about
    distrust and doubts
    doubts
    DOUBTS
    about who you are
    cause LOW self-esteem
    CAN make it seem
    like you're worthless to all
    but it's not your fault
    coz of the things they all did
    boys...trying to be men
    men
    MEN
    still...in the end

    i feel sorry for you
    but not for you
    for the things boys do

    i'm sorry.

    i can't express how much i'm lovin' this piece and the flow that it so apologetically floats on...if that makes any sense to you. i, too, am sorry, for the way that people in general treat others. poet, very nicely written.
