    I take one step forward
    and two steps back
    never seeing the qualities that he lacks,
    but getting caught up way to fast.
    An indication that things weren't meant to last,
    But somehow I've fallen right into his playa trap.
    Knowing better because I've been there before
    so this is no mishap.
    I take one step forward to let myself love,
    but got knocked somehow two steps back.
    Looking up suddenly to find I live in his lap.
    Independant, opinionated black woman
    now puttin' up with this man's crap.
    D***!
    I took one step forward
    only to end up where I began at.

    It often feels that way.. but to our dismay.. God like to do things his way. That step forward.. is the action you made... those 2 steps back could be the lesson that has yet to be relayed.
    1 step forward. 2 steps back...
    Keep your faith in thee that will will give you what you lack...
    and that man that may slack...
    be it removed.. or keep it on track...
    2 steps forward... 2 steps back...
    Another does not hinder us....
    We hinder ourselves...
    Strong in our black womanhood...
    Independent in our need to survive...
    The shield is on...
    even when we think it isn't...
    God Bless and happy holidays
