    For years Ive been in the fast lane
    usin excuses like "i act this way cuz of past pain"
    cuz I've always had skin made of leather and a heart made of steel
    cuz Ive always had a hunger for love, but never ate the meal
    but listen to me closely and trust me
    even leather gets old and metal gets rusty
    Im not what I used to be
    Cuz I met someone who got the best of me n used me
    so that made me realize every warrior has its match
    Every dog has its day where they lose to a cat
    The things u take for granted are the things that u need 2 treasure
    and love is more than innuendos and sexual pleasure
    physical features are nice, but beauty is within the mind
    Now I barely listen to society's ideal of a dime
    cuz ive gained a few and lost more everytime
    so if im a criminal for anything than dating people with bad intentions is my crime...

    :jawdrop: I am speechless. Baby girl, this is the deepest thing you've ever written, no lie. And I don't have to tell you how much I'm feelin it, do I? (parallel lives, to be sho) But the way you tightly dropped this wisdom was second to none. Once again, I'm proud of you, sweetie.
