    Dear Journal
    For some reason, I feel so free :rolling:
    You see I have found a new love!
    No not a new man
    But a new love
    In me
    For me :star:
    Journal, it is indescribable this feeling of fullness I have
    This freedom I have in my heart
    Its like a weight has been lifted
    One by one I have let go of all that dead weight
    Remember that one? the married one
    The one said his wife “didn’t understand”
    He was the first to get kicked to the curb
    Told him I ain’t no marriage counselor
    And I don’t understand either! :jumping:
    The next was that no good hoe
    Don’t know what I saw in him
    Maybe that crook in his manhood put a spell on the coochie!
    Well found a fix for that mojo
    And told that trifling negro to get to stepping! :uzi:
    Oh yeah!
    That fool that dumped me a while back
    And then tried to use me as a booty call back up
    Told that monkey *** NO THANK YOU
    And told him he didn’t have what it took
    To service the Diva :angel1:
    Journal
    I have to tell you how free I am!
    Free at last
    Free at last
    Thank God almighty I am free at last :spinn:
    Oh chile
    I have got to say
    Never thought it would come to this
    All alone
    And feeling good
    No man
    No drama
    No expectations
    To set or meet
    Free to be me :nuts:
    Free to walk naked across the living room floor
    Scratching my but and belching along to Ashanti’s Unfoolish
    Not that I have ever done that mind you
    But I can now if I **** well please! :tongue:
    Well
    Just thought I’d catch you up on all the happenings on my end
    Catch ya on the flip side

    Gurl, this is terrible, terrible tight. From the first line to the very last period. Uh, huh! We are complete whether we have a man or not! If we love ourselves (as God has so commanded) then we will not be so willing to give booty for love. This poem had me sittin' on the edge of my seat with the reading of every line.

    go on gurl....go on
    :jumping: AMEN :jumping: AMEN :jumping: AMEN

    Yo sista in poetry,

    Joyce

    forgiveness is freedom for the soul..your soul.

    I know that if someone is feeling free, there is an element of forgiveness that has taken place. whether within self or forgiving another person-even God, forgiving God can be a very liberating experience. well done Gal

    lo'

    Once you become satisfied with yourself and who you are, then you can become satisfied with someone else....Thanks for this read.

    And her sister's with their journals
    in hand filled with dreams and
    skull draggin each no good man
    found solace in bearing their souls
    to themselves...with out having to
    please anyonelse!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!:toast:
