    you've cried the tears of THE hurt and misused
    with screaming pains of the deeply abused

    but it's not for you that i'm sorry

    i've felt the misery that consumes you
    {DENYING} you joys
    held in store for you

    but i'm not sad for you

    i've witness angry words flung in haste
    and thought, "'tis a waste of good energy"

    i'm sorry

    no...not for you
    but for all those who
    believe they've gotten the best of you.

    i'm sorry

    for the weak and immature
    who think their game is strong
    not knowing how wrong they are
    in their impression of you

    yes, i'm sorry

    for the misguided fools
    who think they are cool
    ...can school you
    on the finer things in life
    equating THE GOINGS ON between satin sheets
    with realitY

    i'm sorry

    for all those who
    live their life not knowing the beauty of you
    yet feel that they are endowed with mental wisdom of YOU
    through visions of "OOOOOHHH"

    {do you think?}

    NO.

    {Neither do i.}

    i'm sorry for the sorrowful
    bunch of pathetic minds
    who think
    in terms of the lies
    they're going to tell
    by days end
    again and again
    never letting the soul mend

    but they don't know

    AS i look to my FATHER
    I ask forgiveness
    for the wasted minds
    of all those who
    have forsaken kindness
    for less
    than a night's pleasures
    then toss away the
    real treasure
    THAT IS YOU.

    as i fall into a gentle slumber
    mind tumbling
    about the ruination
    of another nation
    of bruthaz
    who have no clue
    about living
    i ask for the giving
    of hope
    to the hopeless of heart
    and pray that they
    wake up to the TRUTH

    i'm sorry

    no...not for you
    but for me.
    {and my selfish WAYS}

    i say that i'm sorry for them
    but actually, i'm thankful
    for giving up a graceful treasure
    in search of physical pleasures
    they'll never
    ENJOY
    beyond the moment
    allowing us to come together
    and smile.:)

    i'm thankful for their
    walking away from happiness
    coz...i must confess
    i see my smile
    in your eyes

    thank you

    for consenting to
    share your heart and mind
    with me
    that we might see
    what love and happiness
    is all about
    having no doubts
    in the love we share

    thank you for going there

    with me.
