    *they know who they be*

    the best of both worlds
    is what I thought she had
    having a husband and a lover
    just didn't seem so bad

    both are so devoted
    both are so sincere
    but life for her is stressful
    she lives in constant fear

    her love cannot withstand
    the strain she's going through
    and I can see the future
    and what she's bound to do

    because it's just not right
    to actively do wrong
    she'll love them all her days
    but live her life, alone

    Can't have your cake, and eat it too, some things tend to catch up to you...this was on point.
