    No Man is ever worth a blow to the face or a punch in the eye
    No Man is ever worth feeling worthless or wanting to die
    No Man is worth the bruises left for all your friends to see
    No man that hits a woman isn't a man at all you see?....

    ...I can't take being a witness to the pain of a friend.
    A.K.A a dumb broad that says she loves him and can't see her own end.
    My poor dear friend will soon pay that price.
    Becuase of the guy she loves that has hit her more than twice.
    Just imagine my horror Saturday when I heard him say.
    "She knows you get your *** whupped, whats different about today?"
    Yeah she fights him back, but what happens after the fact?
    She sighs, then cries, and eventually takes him back.
    I had to step between them , to try to calm them down.
    The night started off fine before they started to clown.
    Girls like my friend piss me off, they don't seem to get it.
    Trying to cover up signs of abuse is just too pathetic....

    No Man is ever worth the abuse, the pain or consistent tears
    No man is ever worth the mental scars that last for years
    No man is ever worth the tears that your friends have cried
    Because they tried so hard, but you still died

    Awwww, this was so sad. I had a friend like this too and I let her live her life but we had to handle this gansta wanna be when he brought kids into the matter. We straightened him and he no longer beats her. I hate women like this too. They are so pathetic. I don't see what would make them stay with someone like that. This was a tyte flow. You know I was feeling it.

    This piece was filled with sorrow...a woman in this position doesn't see clearly, she doesn't see a way out, and she probably lost her self worth long ago....
