    when I walk alone down these carpeted corporate corridors
    i think to myself that things must get better
    i have a beautiful home and things that I have always desired
    i must focus on my work and be more productive
    i have two beautiful sons that I must do more things with
    and a husband that always tries hard

    i think that I have fallen short
    fallen into madness
    i must release myself from this spell that has lasted way too long
    just then I receive a call
    it’s my husband and he says
    i've been thinking about you all
    day long and I love you
    is that God giving me a sign?
    saying look what you have here
    and you walk around depressed
    pining for a man that isn’t even worth your energies and your troubles

    go forward little one
    feel blessed by what I have bestowed upon you
    i have blessed you 1,000 times over
    and you toss those blessings away with potential that has been stifled
    engrossed with sex and tattoos
    give it up black woman
    you deserve better for yourself, for your family
    and the I deserve better too
    better from you

    how liberating this feeling is
    how right and free I feel right now
    it is time to let this thing go
    and be what I know that I can be
    for no time is left to dwell in adultery and sin
    let go the brother with the chocolate skin and the pretty facial hair
    that rules you with his **** but don’t really care
    take back that which loves you with his heart
    and share that love with abundance in your home

    and just like that...
    i am free

    amen….
