    Its not enough anymore to see the one you want and be
    With just he one now its a must that you vcheat steal and
    Abuse the one you care for the most
    The epidemic that spread
    From one mans neglaect of his own soul

    I know all too well what this disease is like I used to be the
    One and only in one man's life and now I'm lucky if
    He ever notices me
    But the moral is not in this
    Yes this story has a twist
    While I yet longin for the one
    I notice several others that long for me

    Yes ladies and gentleman
    I moved on to not one but many
    Not for a moment cosidering
    The feelings of any
    I caught the disease and forgot how to be faithful
    Now I spend time in and out of relationships
    Just being playful
    All because for one moment I knew what it was
    To feel like I was not enough
    Now everyone else is not enough

    ahhh! this piece takes me back to a moment in time
    when enough wasn't enough until it got twisted only
    to let be felt what one had felt so long ......not enough!

    I've longed for that one
    Its never enough for me
    I look at myself more now
    Its crazy how I am envying me
    I am sometimes to quick to brag
    Look at my looks
    I feel like I am all I have
    At times the feeling is crazy
    Surround myself with woman
    Just too feel realier than most
    My life filled with killers
    Pimps and players
    Everyone taking turns so many different ladies
    I guess I realize im not the settle down type
    Im the dress multi million
    Flick the block-yes I am the hype
    But when it all sets in
    Its when my time checks in
    I need more than woman and looks
    To make my heart stop the crush within

    Love your drop Soulful
    Much Love poet

    How the actions of one can change how we interact with others...But one day you will meet that one who you are indeed enough for. Well written as per your usual, good to read a new piece from you.

    Enough is a loaded word. This makes me consider what "enough" is and is not. Nice.
