    “So one man did you wrong” maybe it
    was two maybe even three, doesn’t mean
    you should curse the whole dang tree!

    I know it’s hard and your heart seem so
    broken that the pieces are scattered and
    you can’t stop choking.

    Choking from the let down and put down
    and then he went away, maybe even left you
    with a baby, he might have even said he would
    be back some day.

    You see my sista’s there are some good men, “yeah
    we would all like to know where, but we have to
    learn to let go of the hurt and pain of yesterday,
    if not we will never find them and if we are blessed to
    they will never stay.

    Because so many have done us wrong, we have got
    to stand tall and be strong. But please just remember a
    man can only do what we let them, so let’s check ourselves
    before we cast all the blame, not all men are the same.

    Just look to your heart for the part you did play, let’s try to
    love them, get along and quit sending them out to stray.
    One bad apple does not spoil the whole bunch, but stop
    look, learn and listen the next time, before you go to lunch…

    The words you wrote are so true. I have been trying to tell my cousin this for months, but after she read this I think she got the message. Thanks Queen
