    It's a shame, such a shame
    All the pain from the start

    It's a shame, such a shame
    I can't give you my heart

    It's a shame, such a shame
    I think your love is a plot

    It's a shame, such a shame
    So if you love me then stop

    Never had a chance at romance from the moment conceived
    because the pawns of my conception got me under-acheived

    Don't know whom I should fear, I don't know what I beleive
    All I know for sure, is that I need you to leave

    I'm like a volcano that's about to erupt
    Wanna close the door to my soul and just spark that shizz up

    I'm on the edge, a woman scorned, feel my wrath, hell hath no fury
    I'm just a woman scorned with another ghetto story

    That yin and yang, I'll never change, sometimes I'm good and then bad
    Chalk one up to the game and the life that I had

    Waking up everyday, I'm always feeling so sad
    Flashbacks, bad memories of my dad and step dad

    Can't remember that far to when my real daddy left
    But when step dad pop'd up hell I'll never forget

    Waking up every night, hearin em fight
    Praying he won't hit my momma tonight

    I'd say:

    Now I lay down in defeat
    Lord, please don't wake me from my sleep
    I'm trying to be strong, but the cuts so deep
    I might get up and kill this creep

    As time went on, I hate to say it only got worse
    Step dad is a crackhead and a deacon at church

    This hypocrite's mocking God my soul bout to burst
    Deacon step-dad was almost my first

    So I know what they mean when they say that love hurts
    Turn walk away you don't want me I'm cursed!

    and

    It's a shame, such a shame
    All the pain from the start

    It's a shame, such a shame
    I can't give you my heart

    It's a shame, such a shame
    I think your love is a plot

    It's a shame, such a shame
    So if you love me then stop

    It's a daggone shame when our hearts are filled with so much pain from the past, that there's no room to accept the possibility of true love in the present. But we are so worth that present day love, that cycle does not have to continue. Potent piece poetess!

    Hi Sister Miss Lady
    I do feel what you mean about the pain.
    To witness the unbalancing of nature.
    Of something that is natural.
    Is ashame. Nice read
