    this is for the woman
    who doesn't know
    that a man who hits
    her needs to re-visit
    perhaps even live with
    his own mother-issues
    by his **** self

    it's a furious thing

    but the curious thing

    is how easily we can
    be bought, when we
    sold out for much much
    more

    can you spell s*o*u*l?

    lost yo control?


    this is for the woman
    who doesn't know her
    own worth, therefore
    when he cums waddling ~
    if it walks like a duck
    quacks like a duck
    she'll take him back

    for a one-night ****

    and more bad luck...

    so sad the hunger
    for self-love
    never getting
    filled...
    too bad the
    craving for
    the counterfeit
    is all that's
    instilled

    no,

    I ain't the one
    to BLAST
    the woman who
    was trying to heal

    she let the devil
    back in

    and we KNOW
    HE WILL

    "Love is fierce"

    Shaking my head at how quickly
    How consciously
    How fiercly
    You brought this truth

    Maybe you carried it
    In a brown paper bag
    Or
    Maybe you took it
    Off her shoulders
    And dragged her burden
    Across the screen with you
    It doesn't really matter
    All that matter is
    That you came with it
    And wrapped up inside of it
    Is

    *truth*

    Thinking hard about this one A...thinking

    oh my gawd!!!

    maybe I'd rather be blasted by the devil! Wouldn't EVEN want YOU mad at me! I felt this one. I pity the people (men AND women) who degrade themselves in the name of 'love'. They truly had a distorted view of what love is.

    Teach Alyce! :heart:

    Alyce I know we've never met...

    so, how could you have known this was my experience? Called myself loving unconditionally while he hit, kicked and slapped me. What surprised me was that he WORSHIPPED THE GROUND HIS MOM WALKED ON! (and supposedly men who love and respect their mothers will treat their woman the same way). So to this day I still can't figure out his-story. Yes, I didn't at the time know my self worth and EVERY single time I took him back because...I loved him.

    I've certainly learned from this situation and hope that other young women realize their owm self-worth and never settle for less than what they deserve as Princesses and Queens!!

    Just blessed and thankful that God kept me alive to share my story.

    Thank you Alyce for sharing this piece!!!
