    it's time to fly free
    no more "why me"
    for God is saying "try me"

    no more clubbing
    rub-a-dubbing on a man who has no fear of God
    if you want love
    set you affections on things above

    sister in Christ
    you say you slept with many men
    but everyday the sun rises
    God says try again

    i believe it's sad that you don't know your value
    you let other people
    evaluate your worth for you

    your body, your mind, your soul
    is worthy of peace and friendship
    more than it is diamonds and gold
    so be whole...

    sister in Christ
    kiss your son and daughter
    greater than their missing dad is their heavenly father
    who will raise and keep them..

    i will end this freestyle
    but understand that God put you here to serve him first
    not your man
    or husband so peace................................

    Thanks for the expression
    of concern and compassion.
    Through the use of poetic flow,
    she will be encouraged to know,
    that there is a better way to live
    when she receives what Jesus gives.

    Beautiful piece j'hiah.

    *smh*

    some people focus on the wrong things

    those who make relationships with a significant other
    a main priority have not even established a relationship
    with GOD themselves

    and as we can see that is the most important thing
    in the long run

    the tragic death of Aaliyah a young ambitious 22 year
    old (me also) helped me to realize that being single
    isn't a handicap if anything it's a blessing

    i can wake up tomorrow and see another day knowing
    that i have a bright future ahead of me

    we often take living to see another day for granted and
    because of her death i shall remain forever humble and
    grateful


    *j'hiah i was thinking the exact same thing don't 4get
    your soulmate when you blow up* :lol:

    peace
