    Knowing what I was getting into
    Can I ask to change the rules I put through.
    Knowing you have this other life
    Knowing that you have a "wife"
    Knowing I may not be ready
    Knowing I just left my steady
    Not knowing what your answer will be
    All I am thinking about is me.
    Can I risk if the answer is no.
    What if all I am is your current ho.
    What do I expect you to say?
    That you'd love to come and stay.
    Knowing all I know
    and still I want a go . . .
    So when you ask me what I am thinking
    Shut up, think about what you asked and just keep drinking.

    Girl you definitely know as I think many people know what they are getting into, but just don't care.

    Things we know....and then there are things we'd rather not know. Deep drop.

    7 Months later - Should've Known

    thanks for bring this one back . . . appreciated the words then and added some below to show how much i've grown . . .

    Shoud've known
    i was grown
    saw all the signs
    recited them in rhymes
    practiced speeches in my mirror
    looking for that mighty healer
    wanted someone to show me the way
    afraid alone i would fall astray
    lose my focus and my drive
    but, it was alone i gained the greatest stride
    found confidence in my voice
    no longer let other make my choice
    say what i need to and learning more
    i know who i am down to my core
    and right in time since i will become
    the mother to my best friends son
    the man who has always been by my side
    though he didn't have to remind
    that i am a strong woman with a ton of pride.
