    January 5th, was a landmark in my life
    January 5th, brought consequnces sharp as a knife

    January 5th, I trusted a man with my body
    After January 5th, He treated me like a nobody

    January 5th, I thought I was grown as far as I was concerned
    After January 5th, I realized I had a lot to learn

    On January 5th, My heart was free and pure
    After January 5th, My heart became insecure

    January 5th, my love warmed and smiled
    After January 5th, tears created rivers miles wide

    January 5th, I confused love for lust
    January 5th, it was "In Him I Trust"

    Januray 5th, I didn't wait til I was married
    January 5th, I got sumthing that he carried

    January 5th, I opened my legs and closed my eyes
    After January 5th, A blood test showed me quite a surprise

    January 5th will effect the rest of my life
    I gave up my soul in exchange for 1 night

    I gave him one hundred percent, Gave him all I had...
    Now ths n*ggas gone, I admit that still Im sad

    You read my poems;say "get over it";"you'll get well"
    Well, live in my shoes for once; THIS SH*T HURTS LIKE HELL!

    It's been 6 months and I still remember that night
    Down to EVERY detail(yep, you read me right)

    The pain lessens and worses; it never goes away
    But it know it's early, it will leave one day

    I lost my childhood on January 5th, trying to be cute
    Yet Gained nothing but a disease, and that n*gga gave me the boot

    Ladies PROTECT YOURSELF, I'll say one more thing before I'm through......
    "If it can happen to me, for sure it can happen to you.......

    Although painful and tragic...you are a stronger person and wiser all the same, the key is that you recognize this and was wise enough to share this. Keep ya head up! Nice flow.

    protect your neck
    cause no one else will give a heck
    n!ggaz don't giva a ****
    about going in raw when the get the call
    they just want to slam
    wood in and out of your womanhood
    if a cat won't slide a jim hat on
    then he is up to no good

    and that's the truth...
    life lessons learned sometimes are really hard to deal with
    believe me i know
    peace
