    i just don't understand
    how people can take
    take and take

    and not premeditate
    their fate

    i awake to see the fake
    looking back at me with hate

    i just don't understand how people
    take take and take

    ...hurts so bad inside to accept
    and settle for what it's worth

    nothing
    yet continuosly we wait

    i just don't understand how
    people take take and take

    not premeditating their fate

    washed up like a cup of tide
    near sandy beaches arriving
    an hour late

    i just don't understand how
    people take take and take

    hurting each other with pain
    and heartache

    take take and take

    until its gone

    so many have no fate o
    to even permeditate
    and aply pain wit no shame
    they just take & take
    don't care of da fate..........

    some people just don't care
    we got them everywhere
    in all shapes and form
    surely they wasn't born
    to be of such
    just a notion they choose
    to clutch

    I try to reach da heart of those
    yet one's who know
    still aply preasure without fate
    so i wait in da stillness of night!

    dis was a beautiful write ................lovin it!

    selfish...

    self-serving people cares not for those around them...who they use...who they hurt...who the take from 'til nothing's left to give.

    been acquainted with a few of them...in my many travels. UNFORTUNATELY.

    flow, my sistah.

    This was unique timing as I was just talking to my son and niece about reaping what you sow when you harm other people.
    Girl, I couldn't believe I was reading this after having finished my talk with them. Well expressed...beautifully written.:spin:
