    Walk out about or ridin in the ride
    See you looking but play the role
    Like to have me look then you look away your goal
    Does anyone not play games and is real right from the soul?
    Is anyone out there on my side?

    But nature and game control their mind
    I talk to many and push them away
    Yeah you say you want a real love...yeah...right ok
    I've hear that so many times, it's whatever but hey
    I find myself just sticking to this career grind

    So many think i am the player
    Judge me 1 by 1 of with all the negative you can
    You want me to step to you just cause i'm the man
    My approach wasn't a front, just being who i am
    So now you think i'm some woman heart slayer

    I observe so many assumptions about me about us
    Treated according to how you prejudge
    Like it's personal, it must be some kind of grudge
    A stain on your soul, like it has some kind of smudge
    So it lingers in my mind, and i brood while venting my fuss

    So now i tend to keep my eyes straight
    I'm happy to be single
    And yeah i still go out with friends and yeah...i mingle
    And yeah i still have the urges to make your body and soul tingle
    But your eyes divert away, as if filled with hate

    Your reluctant to accept what i can be to you
    Maybe it's fear, all hearts have a story to tell
    I know mine does now, I know you know pain, you've taught it so well
    We all know pain, but you act as if it is your mission to sell
    So now I get choosy and see my options as few

    I see so much during my time in this life
    So much pain, we give so much strife
    Nah i'm not bein corny like some Barney Fife
    As i observe, you just wonder...with what i see...how can i think of you as a potential wife

    So i live on and work on me
    Everyone says, "Hey...you find the right one, don't give up...you'll see"
    I don't know about yall, i'm tired of pain and just want to be free
    To do what God intended of you ...and of me
    To love and not spread the pain of your heart...don't hurt others and pass on the angry mentality

    Love and be truthful to yourself and others yall

    Peace.

    Hi Blue, thanks for the kind words. To many times we pass on hate and not make this world a better place. I'm guilty of it too. Just puttin it out there.

    to lovthysoul

    let me tell you this
    if you want to experience true bliss

    you must first go outside of your box
    stop trying to dwell on a fox

    everything that glitters aint gold
    for you to crumble or fold

    from finding out your diamond was a fake
    for you to be replaced by alton or jake

    see sweety sometimes the one be in our own surrounding
    the day you meet her your heart will go pounding

    out of control cause you couldn't believe she was always there
    to ease your fears and cares

    we so focus on the wrong things
    and not focusing on the joy that person will bring

    baby all i'm saying don't go looking for grass that's greener on the other side
    then find out she took you and your heart for the ride

    see i don't discriminate
    honey i participate

    there's no sense to be limited
    then come to find out your the one who timid

    baby let go of the past
    and see won't true love last

    to have love with out a limit
    for them to be down with cha from start to finish

    and one day this ray of light will forever shine
    for you to be down on knee telling her your forever mine

    be the observer, be cautious its your right
    don't complain when your old to experience lonely nights

    love come in different shapes and sizes
    i think you know by now who wear disquises

    i have loventhysoul
    only you can take this thing call destiny under control

    This thing called love, when it doesn't go right, it takes time for a heart to heal. Give it that time, and yes, take time to concentrate on you. Feeling your flow brotha.

    To Nevar....

    See now you are assuming like others, that you have some window in to my life, like you can see
    But you've never seen my heart, how i loved or chose others and it shows you don't know me

    See i never was the judgemental type, i gave all shapes and sizes a chance
    I didn't care if they were rich or poor, whatever the mindset, they got a taste of my romance

    But you see i see deeper than the surface of such simple things
    I even looked past what could be considered faults...even gave 1 a ring

    But you don't understand...i guess in my poems before you never gathered
    I have honestly given my heart so many times and realize now it never mattered

    See i've heard the same mess from women time and time again and yea they acted like they were brand new
    Yeah i accepted them for who they were, got played like chess and now i see this truth of what i have to do
    and see my options very few

    My box is for me you see and no one else
    If i don't look out for me, no one will and that's why my heart stays lock up on that shelf

    I have taken my chance on those deserved and those that didn't and loved unconditional true and all received was lies and betrayal
    I'd RATHER be alone and stay the single man than to ever go again to that place of [email protected]

    I have forgiven others in the past time and time again only for them and more to do it again
    Yet i find it funny that all of yall, this one that one...and even you honey want them to allow another sin to begin

    I don't see love the same anymore, i feel that with friends and family ...yeah it's true
    Have you read the definition of love from God? It's UNCONDITIONAL and most of yall don't know how to do

    I have heard it so many times of how this one or that will tell me of how it will be
    Believed in them and had faith so many times that now all i want is to be free

    Free of the lies and deceit that you want me to believe in
    No i can't do it...i can't go there again
    And if i have to be alone....so be it then
    I have accepted this fate as my possible path and the truth of the words within

    Yall don't get it, and probably never will, i have forgiven more things than you can believe
    But my heart can only take so much, only so many lies, only so much pain and only so many who love only to deceive

    A year ago, i took the time to go back and forgive everyone who has ever done me wrong
    And then i meet someone later who does the same as the rest, but did much much worse and now here i am again, heart feelin the same old song

    So let me get this straight...if you hurt then go out and keep opening up for them to do it again?
    Let another give me false crap for me to believe in? Trust them and let them be my friend?

    I'm exausted of the lies and i am done with the good black man role
    I have given sistas only my all and i have loved with all my soul

    I was faithful, romantic, not soft but true and loved with all my being
    But that was never enough as the result the same and this is all i've been seeing

    If i miss out then i miss out on pain as i don't see how i can let anyone in
    No, this pain and betrayl too much, yall proving me only as a sucker to believe in you again and again

    Why should i do it? Why should i care. I have only been faithful, loving and true
    But sistas have steadily taught me, even when i can't believe that i'd be stupid to believe in you

    From your sistas own lips i have heard how you wanted to play me just for conquest
    Her own best friend even confirmed what she did and only proved herself as evil hearted as the rest

    None can handle true love and don't even know how to get it
    I've given so much selflessly only to be backstabbed into the heart, and i'm done with this whinin rhyme....

    Me give another chance ? Man screw that, i've had enough...forget it




    You might see things differently than me
    You might even seemingly agree
    But one thing i want you to see
    Is that i now have to protect the love within me

    So many of you sista never gave me a chance
    so many of you so quickly judged me at first glance
    All i wanted to do was enjoy life with you and share a sensual romance
    But all i get is that same song and dance

    Sayin you want this and want that
    And when i give it to you...you act as if sayin ..."Take that crap back"
    I have taken the time to see even if it was me that lacked
    And analyzing on all that has ever happened, it was they who slacked

    I am done of giving so much, So many i have met are so out of touch
    I might cling to this pain like it's my personal crutch
    But how many times has someone said to you..."Been a naieve sucker much?"
