    sacrifights

    tears have fallen and seasons have passed
    feelings came and they went
    how much longer will this last
    If we’re emotionally spent

    hearts get broken
    and we make amends
    but 3 months later, we at it again
    fighting a war where no one wins
    my Patience and commitment are wearing thin

    a vicious cycle of love and hate
    a painful routine of human mistakes
    leaves the soul swollen with a bitter taste
    and a relationship slowing going to waste

    a harsh reality replaces the puppy love
    blank stares and cold shoulders
    replace the kisses and hugs
    crocodile tears turn into emotional floods
    we had it in the past
    ...but that ain’t enough

    yesterday’s sun won’t dry today’s rain
    memories of fun won't subdue the pain
    what is and what was are two different things
    forever is fleeting with each destroyed dream

    Each passing day grows harder and harder
    I’m here for my child ‘cause she needs a father
    Don’t want to fight or feud in the courts
    Over weekend visits and a lil child support
    Don’t want my princess crying or wrestling with hurt
    I’ll sacrifice my life to this relationship first

    This is deep, and I'm feeling this...When love is gone, we can barely feel a trace of what we thought was forever.

    "Each passing day grows harder and harder
    I’m here for my child ‘cause she needs a father

    DAY-Um, I feel that. . .
    too many women running to court
    for twelve cents shy of what will upkeep the fort
    playing games when daddy doing right
    cause you hating his new girl and the two of you had a fight
    wish these women who make babies with men
    would understand difference between dem
    daddies who ain't isht and those who stand up
    coming to school, taking an interest and not being corrupt
    women we need to remember just cuz you ain't getting your way
    don't mean you can cut off daddy, why should your kids pay
    the price and not know the type of caliber man
    just cuz this didn't end according to your master plan
    not all these daddies is doing wrong
    some is crying your same sad song
    all he wants is to raise his seeds and contribute best he can
    women, stop crying wolf when your baby daddy is a man
