    What Price Your Soul?

    To the young women and men

    What is it worth?
    What’s next after sex?
    What happened to the fiber of your being?
    Why the insatiable need to have sex so soon?
    Or with someone who does not love you let alone respect you?
    How bout they don’t even know you.
    Do you know yourself?
    Not enough I guess

    Respect so little
    Hate filled might
    Was it all worth it?
    Lies, secrets, shame, guilt
    Where do u see yourself now
    Look in the mirror

    Tear stained face, ashen skin, and hollow eyes
    Weight loss and weak immune system
    Was it worth it?
    Does your soul live on
    Have u passed on
    What price you paid
    What price your strayed?
    What price your soul?

    Now with a permanent mole
    Sick sick sick
    At heart
    Deep in soul
    What price you paid
    To be cold and forever untrusting
    Without a hint of what it feels and means to be truly loved
    To grow old and bitter thinking and believing you can never count
    on anyone

    No judgments don’t take it as such...

    Just wondering what was u thinking?
    What runs through your mind?
    When u meet someone and between 1-6 days later you have been
    intimate with them?

    Oh it doesn’t count cause there was no intercourse—Please spare
    me the bull
    You swapped spit
    You touched them
    They touched you
    You held each other
    Laid in each others bed
    U grinded (humped)
    And maybe even finger ******
    Must I get into the oral pleasures
    But what price your soul
    for someone U don’t know?

    Parents, friends, siblings – Help – Scream - Shout
    It does not matter whether u r
    16
    23
    32
    45
    54
    U r still worth more than that
    U deserve more than that
    Ur mind body soul is a temple
    Treasure ur pleasures for it’s the only one u have
    Ruined, Worn, Stink, and Wrinkled then what?
    So what u’ve been tested – But have they
    So what u r clean now
    But for how long?
    Ur soul is already lost

    Ur self worth is already cheap
    Regardless, I still love u can’t honestly say I respect what U do.
    No matter what happens I’m still a friend who can tell u the truth
    and rest in the end.
    None of my business true indeed but when in need; I won’t turn
    my back.
    U have so much more to offer
    Be as such and stand tall​

    A woman worth
    is more then
    silver & gold
    something to treasure
    in a forever mold
    the price
    their is none
    no need to give anyone some
    protect the gift
    savor the time
    until true love
    the token ring on the line
    u can't price what has no tag
    but so many give it for
    $5 or a bag
    some free just open dem legs
    ya center need not be fed
    da cup is full sexuality like mad

    books, education , is mental pleasure
    the price so many pay when LSD
    and HIV is lurking on every corner
    The worth is uncompaired
    share the gift when true love arrives

    I feel ya on this joint so many traped in the mist
    giving it at any coast , if one is hot get under a fan
    take a cold shower and count da blessings. PEACE!
