    When men and women know and care.......
    We show our strengths of consistency
    Women's moods or phases
    alwayz test men's strengths and sincerities
    When she becomes pregnant
    Her nature tests the man more
    To ensure that he is man enough to father a child
    Wise men and women have known this before
    And have held together to build the future that we deserve and need
    As G-d's crown of creation in this earth
    We are to lead
    Our natures to direct us
    On to the success, to heed the call
    The wiles of Satan try to interfere
    And make our own natures our downfall

    The unwise misread
    They act up and act out
    They get into intense situations of drama
    They cuss and they shout
    And never make it into the future together
    Even though their hearts minds and bodies ache with love for one another
    They are deaf, dumb and blind to the signs
    And what should bring them strength and wisdom becomes their nemesis
    It's the exact things that offer us success that will become our albatross
    And render us a mess
    And be our undoing if not understood and managed well
    Make our attempted lives together
    An existence from the pits of hell​

    Wow...this was just profound, all too often, we just keep getting in our own way, preventing ourselves from seeing what is truly there. Wonderfully flowed.
