    Walking down the street with your hands on your hips
    Talking too loud and cussing those foul words from your lips
    Lil' Miss grown too old before your time
    Been this smart and"Miss Know It All"since you were nine.
    Mama couldn't control you tried to do the best she could do
    Too unfaithful and what she gave you were always ungreatful
    Said you was gone be a star someday and everyone would be screaming your name
    Now it's crazy because that lil' bit of fame filled up your brain
    In highschool thought you was a prize and opened up your thighs for a burger and some fries
    So cute,you didn't care what them skettles thought of you
    "They just wish they could do what I do."
    Got involved with the wrong kind and started drinking
    Staying out all night three o'clock in the morning what were you thinking?
    Lil' cousins looked up to you said,"Show me how to do that move."
    Filled thier heads up with this vision so cool because they thought you were famous too.
    Fell inlove so soon with someone who would soon cause abuse
    Went to school bruise up,but still proclaimed,"I'm in love!"
    Only 16 got pregnant had your first child
    Wouldn't let that stop you and ran wild.
    He left when the second baby came
    So beautiful,but not who he claimed
    Cursing out anyone who had a thing to say about how you handle yours
    Disrespecting your mom called her all types of whores
    Moved into the army for the money.
    Got married to another man third child
    Bad Mommy.
    Layed in the hospital bed when they said.......
    "Sorry mam,but you had a misscarriage."
    Almost died in that bed from the lost of blood
    Ashamed of yourself,not ready for the flood
    Family shaking their head at you because you seemed to not care
    God saved you and that seemed pretty fair
    Family didn't know,you would have had 6 kids,but oh no!
    You said,"What a sight to behold I'm only 24 years old!"
    Killed the little baby because you're selfish and crazy
    Left the two babies with family and only to return in a disguise to try and comprimise.
    Took them away and had another lil miss.Kay.
    Police show up to your trailor some hour in the night(midnight)
    Left them children 9,8, and 2 now that ain't right.
    Told the police,"I just want my clothes and that's it."
    So sad they had to hear it.....
    Their own mother.
    I could go on and on about this,but it causes me to reminisce.
    Please,slow down and look at yourself through the broken glass.
    All the hurt and drama you've caused shouldn't last.

    Dedicated to:My dearest cousin,please wake up because your time is running short....... :help:

    So young, so young this poor soul. It's sad because we reap what we sow. And if I'm allowed to call a spade...a spade, it makes me wonder if the parents aren't ...'reaping what they sown'? and judging from your conversation this child is only 16...with 2-3 or more babies? she had to start at a very young and tender age. It sounds like she is on a serious mission...not to mention a very dangerous one. I wish only the best for your cousin. Hopefully she will soon see the light.
    Thank you so much for letting us inside your world.

    She's 26 now,but she would have had 6 kids when she was 24 and that's what the poem is talking about her how she moved from being this spoiled brat to a selfish monster the best I can do is pray that she wakes up and realizes that the ground she walks on is not sweet:wink:
    thanx
    peace for now but much love always

    You're hoping and praying for her, all you can do, if merely talking to her would have helped, she wouldn't be in this fix. A tale too often told, I hope her life changes for the better soon.
