    I woke this morning with a revelation
    Which just might lead me to elation
    I realize that it doesn't hurt like it use to
    And i can finally accept that we are through
    You see I've discovered you was a want not a need
    Thank God Almighty that my mind is now freed
    for I was convinced you was as neccesary as air
    i believed I wouldn't survive if you weren't there
    But not only am i still surviving I'm surpassing
    Surpassing all the negativity you was blasting
    Putting our dirty laundry out on front street
    Got people looking at me like I am a cheat
    But they say you cant track the source of a lie
    So I won't even waste time giving it a try
    I will just outlive the rumors, and dirty looks
    Knowing that I was doing it right by the books
    And like a cancer you affected everything even my good name
    But I take in stride my fifteen minutes of shame and fame
    For like Maya said I'm a phenomal women and still I rise
    I rise with knowledge and stength, full of promise
    I will come out of this better for the lesson learned
    Knowing that you was neccesary for the the wisdom earned

    yes indeed sometime we get talked about , looked at and instilled in dirty
    shame of fame but to withstand it is a true claim and moving upward as a
    power tool is a great feat and rule to use ...happy u found this out in time
    and yes u still can shine as bright for the wisdom learned in terms

    Always more than one side to a story, and when we get caught in the middle of lies and rumors, it hurts. It also hurts when we have loved so much and it just isn't going to be. You decribed this scenerio so well, I could feel the ache in your words, but I also felt you rising up with wisdom. Well written piece.
