    ?Why waste my time?

    In my heart I let you in
    And in this space you left me pain
    an empty void
    a cloud with no rain
    and I'm bout to go insane

    See I gave you love
    my very best
    but when trials came you failed the test
    You lost sight of goals
    All the important things
    and all the joys that life can bring

    Yes I'm angry
    that's why I'm writing this poem
    So I can release this pain and try to move on
    to bigger and better things
    things YOU could not supply
    Cause you was too busy in the streets
    shootin dice and gettin high

    I hated you so bad
    wanted everything you touched to fail
    wanted life to give you hell
    didn't want you to last at all

    But thru all the hate
    I could not hear
    God whispering in my ear
    Tryin to tell me all along
    that for me you were all WRONG

    God said what does he do for?
    I couldn't think of one good thing
    God said what do I do for you
    I replyed back EVERYTHING

    So why would I cry
    over a no good guy
    who cheats, steals and loves to lie
    why oh why
    would I waste my time
    over a silly guy not worth a dime

    Why even waste my breath
    Now the anger has left
    If it happen to come back in
    I'll be back with pad and pen. :uzi:

    Nice Sis--One love, Nita--

    my attitude lookin grim
    my looks
    similar to dude
    who didn't comfort you
    needin love true
    as the skies blue
    my seasoned reasons
    to help me relate to your ways
    as i stay
    come from ups and downs
    from back in the day
    you precious
    i feel blessed
    when i can let my kisses
    become yo necklace
    i come into you
    from Babylon
    and the streets
    don't want to eva turn away
    my mind
    bruised, misused
    nerves damaged like flesh from whipmark (damage)
    thru GOD with our love
    we can hand'lit
    your girlfriend can't stand it
    our essence together
    produce a love so truthful it stir
    the planet
    findin someone new
    who can be true to you
    is not only possible
    it's moving to you
    no need to grieve or panic

    One love Sis....do yo thang, Nita

    Nita,

    Excellent writing.................

    Another strong well phrased poem
    Writing is both a means of organizing our thoughts and a medicine for our frustrations in this life.(as well as countless other things) For me it helps to focus and concentrate my powers and gives me time to think and be deliberate and not to act hastily and rashly.

    .....And definitely helps us to neither waist ourselves above or below the waist or both nor waste our precious time.

    Like the way you put this out here.

    Peace and Blessings
