    What is it with the increasing situation of black women looking for men in the wrong places, one day realizing the man they gave the time of day aint worth the dirt on their shoes and then writing all black men off as dogs. I mean let's be truthful here if you find a man in a club, can you really bank on him being "The One?" Sistas..... can you eladorate please?

    I guess Women will love... because as crap as these men may seem they are afterall still Men. & quite possibly Men with potential!
    Perhaps you would be better asking these types of men why they feel unable to turn their lives around with the support of a Loving Woman?

    The results might offer some insight!

    Square Peg/Round Hole

    When I saw this topic title, I immediately thought of a poem I wrote over a year ago with the same title and theme.

    I will let it give my viewpoint and feelings on this subject:

    "Square Peg/Round Hole"
    by Cherry Blossom

    I’ve heard it said that
    Whatever God ordains
    He will sustain
    But only we bear the strain
    Of trying to fit this square peg
    Into a round hole
    Each of us just playing a role
    Of forced civility
    Hiding resentful hostility

    Hell, we’ve even forgotten
    Whatever was once our goal
    To fashion together
    Or whether
    We could ever console
    Ourselves on
    What each of us stole
    From a resigned soul
    Of “I’m just here for the kids.”
    Each of us serving
    What’s left of 18 year bids

    But, I can’t live with the solitary confinement any more
    Nor to feel the disdain masked by the face I wore
    Just to keep the children from sensing it also
    But, now, I see that freedom is what I owe
    Myself and them
    And, only myself I can condemn
    For trying to fit this square peg
    Into a round hole
    But, now, I’m asking for a two-part parole:

    Release me and you
    From this brick wall view
    Of hopelessness.
    And, we’ll work out something on the kids
    Please know, that my love for them forbids
    Me to use them to hurt you

    And by now, I really don’t care enough
    To cause you any pain
    So, let’s just retain
    Whatever we’ve got left in each of us
    To somehow explain
    This to them
    And then, we’ll go on our separate ways
    Still letting them know that they were creations
    That were not mistakes
    But, I just don’t believe that God would have ever
    Ordained these kinds of heartaches.
