    Listen
    Learn
    Never ignore lessons on
    LIFE’S TRUTHS

    If it’s that hard to get
    Make sure it’s legit

    Listen to life when she speaks
    Listen for the knowledge
    She’s trying to share
    …Not for what you wanna hear

    She may be trying to tell you something
    ‘bout who she is.

    “In order to get some
    You gotta bring some…”

    Threats and ultimatums
    Are sound bites for fear
    {selfishness…weakness…}

    Think about this.

    If you’re not willing to come correct
    Don’t come at all

    The constant struggles in life
    Should not be for a heart
    That will never be YOURS
    That’s not a battle
    YOU wanna fight

    BRETHREN

    Hear me when I say…

    “the turmoil of yesterdayz
    baggage influences when and
    what we do
    and who we step to”

    a constantly demanding person
    is a person destined to be alone

    Listen to life

    While you’re crying out for something you’ve never had
    The question remains;
    ARE YOU WILLING TO PUT UP WITH DRAMA
    …OF A RELATION

    If you’re only out to wet your wick
    Let her know

    If she wanna roll,
    Let it be her choice

    If not,
    Move on.

    Don’t be so caught up in who she is
    That you forget who you are

    Listen
    Learn.
