    Danm!! I was a fool AGAIN
    I...let my
    wall down too soon
    Exposed and naive I
    allowed him to achieve
    his mission
    although wasn't
    submissin to
    his demands...this
    Mofo got me trippin!

    Thought one day I'd
    claim him as my
    ~mate~
    don't want a love with
    no love and lust that's
    Tainted with mistrust...not my
    ~fate~

    locks too tight
    pulling~straining
    brain cells...phyche
    ain't straight we...
    had a horiffic debate and

    ~last night I cried~

    before we met I
    was his Queen *thick thick*
    Suddenly, I'm a PUNK?
    This man is SICK!

    This brotha of Masonry's
    got me...
    somewhat confused about
    what's true
    based on knowledge and truth or
    christianity?
    Lord...are you hearin' my plea?
    Refuse to be his case of
    charity.
    Wondering what dream he's
    chasin'
    facin' my
    reality I'm...AGAIN claimin the Lord
    GOD as my
    All~in~All as I...

    WAIT, DELIGHT AND ABIDE...
    ON HIM, IN HIM, AND BY HIM...

    like an anthropologist
    searching~
    probing~
    soil for artifacts I'm...
    searching~
    probing~
    my soul for the
    PeaceLoveN'Happiness
    I deserve

    ~last night I cried~

    because I realized that I don't need a man to validate me or
    make me feel complete.

    *just another baby step into my spiritual/emotional freedom*

    Dry your eyes
    you don't have to cry
    for he wasn't meant for you
    his declarations of love was not true

    he's a liar and a thief not a real man at all
    he trying to be a playa, but he can't even dribble the ball
    no respect for you if he treats you this way
    there is no devotion in the words that he say

    brotha of masonry, 3rd or 33rd degree
    no excuse for the way he treats a queen
    once you were his lady
    but now he talking crazy

    too many issues going on
    let the brother have his swan song
    pluck his image from your memory and heart
    its time to dance to a new beat and move on to a new start

    Love has not been denied
    you don't have to cry
    For your King cometh sooner than you realize
    and it is with HE that your soul shall fly.

    Well...

    I think there comes a time in everyones life but also for a sistah (((UNDERGROUND)))(that's my new word!) to realize that and to love yourself and not have to fish for compliments and things of that nature to make you feel good about yourself or whole. I'm still learning and it's not as easy as I intended. Some of the reasons why it's hard to feel good about myself is the past and things that went on in my family that I couldn't do anything about. And being a young woman still affects me today into "womanhood" and the way that view myself based on that. So... I still have to love me for me and pray that the Lord will heal me and enable me to forgive and move forward. So I can really appreciate myself for what I am. Wow... YOu just made me think about something! Well,I hear ya!,Loud and clear. Don't give up. Everthang's going to be alright!(((HOLD OUT!)))
    Sincerely,
    Desert Storm

    thank you Bishop

    for the love and support! Actually this guy was a friend who offered to assist me in my move to NYC. He started to change in attitude, disposition and his respect for me. I was supposed to be there this weekend but for obvious reasons, I never made it. Now, on to my next plan.

    *just want to reiterate--He wasn't my man*

    Desert...

    I feel us vibin on that underground rumble. Can you feel it? I'm relating to everything you've said more than you know. It's funny how you think you're the only one until you share your story.

    Thanks for the love DS and I believe in my heart that everything IS going to be alright!!

    Matthew 9:29
    Then He touched their eyes, saying, "It shall be done to you according to your faith."

    Afri, many will come and proclaim to be all you seek. many will appear attempting to be something they are not. but you must trust fully that GOD will bring the one in whom makes you both complete...one person. Ephesians 5:31
    FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.

    there is no need to find a man to validate you and vice versa, but understand that one man and one woman are one person when they find each opther in faith. the apostle Paul speaks on thie greatly in a passage that he is responding to the question of the difference between man and woman i n prayer circles. This passage many today do not like. it goes like this:

    1 Corinthians 11:8-12
    For man does not originate from woman, but woman from man; for indeed man was not created for the woman's sake, but woman for the man's sake. Therefore the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. However, in the Lord, neither is woman independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. For as the woman originates from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and all things originate from God.

    in other words, man and woman are the same in Christ eyes and should be treated accordingly. the one whom awaits you is being prepared because the word also says in Proverbs 18:22 that "He who finds a wife finds a good thing
    And obtains favor from the LORD."

    stay hidden my queen for as GOD builds you and prepares you in the quiet places so shall the love you seek find you....

    sorry, i started preaching...about this scribe, well as you can see it had instilled throught in me...it is a wonderful peice and a learning tool for others. continue to journal your lifethrough your scribes for i see a book of healing coming out of it...

    "Last Night I Cried"...

    But the liquids
    Baptized you
    Woman
    So let the river
    Overflow
    Into
    Knowledge
    So that
    The pool
    Of wisdom
    Will
    Allow you
    To

    Float

    Be peace my sista..I really enjoy reading you
    I see my former self in you
    And I say "cheese"
    Into the camera
    Caught up in the picture
    Of ourselves
    WE...two..
    In between your lines

    *polaroid*
