**** it, im alone....that may never change so I should be prepared
I’ve been feeling so down lately, there’s nothing to which it can be compared
I even fail trying to talk to God when I pray
I don't stay on my knees long, I don't know what to say
I feel as if im failing on every aspect of my life
making bad choices, regretting it, and then go back and do it twice
I’m wasting all potential and I hate my weakness when it comes to change
I get in weird moods that even I can't explain
anger, regret, and suspicion are my favorite emotions now
I’m turning into something I don’t like, and can't slow it down
I hope I have some hope left, I’m running out of motivation
I feel like im not even living, it's more like a life simulation
I would welcome a new life with no hesitation, but I have to make it for myself
and learn to be content with my son, my thoughts and my health
material wealth is not the answer I seek
happiness seems so close, but it's just out of reach
I keep trying to trust people and keep getting burned
mistakes are supposed to teach you, but what the hell am I to learn??
that my fellow humans don’t care about **** but what’s good for them?
that when a woman gets a real man, she doesn’t know how to treat him?
that my chances for finding the love I sought has gotten more and more slim?
**** it, I don't even care numbness is returning in force
ima be anti-social and dislike humans with no remorse
only when I learn that someone can be trusted, will I open up a little bit
but in my mind I feel that most people are full of ********
even with my life so ****ed up beyond recognition
I still try and be honest and play my position
all a man has is his word, you know what’s, and his beliefs
im consistent with mine, they won't change till the day I’m deceased
I know what's wrong and I know what's right
and I won't blur the line between the 2 no matter how dark the night

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
