    It’s bad ain’t it?
    The way I let him take over my heart,
    For some reason I thought he was different from all the others,
    though, I must admit brotha’s game was pretty fly,
    he had me lifted on some kind of emotional high,
    It was impressive the way his words could sound so natural,
    I found it cool how he could lie directly to my face,
    staring me straight in the eyes.
    And if I’m not mistaken,
    didn’t I just write a poem about a fool in disguise?
    Damm that’s bad I can’t even practice what I preach,
    I was deafened by his false words,
    wasn’t even tryna listen,
    but so quick to teach,
    I was walking around with the impression that this sh** couldn’t happen to me,
    It’s bad ain’t it?
    How he had me wrapped around his finger,
    I swore up and down he was the one,
    I’m starting to think that maybe love just isn’t for me,
    since I’ve been blinded by good game,
    I now walk around bumping into walls,
    wondering if I will ever be able to trust again,
    hoping one day to gain my senses back,
    my head hung low,
    ashamed that I let some guy run my life off track.
    It’s bad ain’t it?
    But this won’t last forever,
    I refuse to put myself in the.....
    “ I need a man to support me, get my hair and nails done”
    category
    I refuse to put myself in the....
    “ I failed because I chose to let a man shatter my dreams”
    category
    I refuse to be defeated by the “Black woman’s” stereotype.
    I can here my mom telling me now,
    I better get my act together,
    because I know she taught me better!!!!
