    {My bruthaz,
    Don’t be so deep in your own **** that you can’t be sensitive enuff to ask your lady’s forgiveness for all the hurt and pain you delivered unto her door. She didn’t ask for it…didn’t go out looking for it…that was all on you. Just because you quit playing—decided to be a man—don’t mean that she can forget. Be patient with your HEART…she’ll get there, if you show her the way. Don’t be like me…see what I’m saying!!!}

    I packed up my ****…walked out the door
    {WHERE ARE YOU GOING?}
    I’ll be back when I get back…can’t take this hea no mo’

    I’m tired of the fighting
    Soap opera drama and ****
    You know **** well I can’t be living like this

    When the dust settles down
    At the end of the day
    After you’ve listened to your crew
    And what your neighbors have to say
    When you’re lying in the king size
    In the middle of the night
    All alone
    In your bedroom
    Angrily weighing my wrongs and rights

    Your heart begins a rhythmic pounding
    …soul continuously beating you down
    the walls of injustice
    constantly closing…all around
    remember my words
    just these ones,
    if you will
    get off of the bullshyt
    merry-go-rounds make me ill.

    I was there for you, boo
    When it was just you and me
    Can’t deal with your crew
    …mind, can’t handle the fee
    This taxing *** ****
    Spills ova
    Ev’ryday
    You my woman…or not
    ***** what yo’ gurls say

    I’m tired’a you bugging ‘bout nuthin at all
    Tired’a the abuse ev’rytime yo’ gurls call
    Tired’a going backwards ‘coz dey be jealous a me
    Dis drama **** ain’t pretty…and fighting ain’t free

    The hoodrats and thugs
    Baby…they mean you no good
    Get outta da gutta
    …mind, outta da hood

    Let go of the pain the YESTERDAYZ have caused
    My childish *** ways have hurt you
    …I know

    I’m beyond all that now
    I’m a man…baby, see
    That little boy of yesterdayz
    Bare no resemblance to me

    Are you with me
    Babygurl
    In my corner to win
    Stand by a strong brutha
    Thru thickness and thin

    The **** has been thick
    I know that
    I do
    .
    The love was pretty thin
    But I’m beyond that
    It’s true

    I’m sorry for the sorrow
    But the drama didn’t last
    Are you with me {into tomorrow}
    Or
    Are you stuck in the past

    I love you, babygurl
    Open your eyes {can’t you see}
    That little boy of yesterday

    He’s gone

    Look at me.

    Baller~

    I'm definitely feelin' this piece... it's thought provoking indeed. Unfortunately sometimes it's too late for some brothas to turn all of the "wrong doings" around to make them "all right".

    Much respect & :heart:

    baller,

    true wisdom from one who walks with insight...i understand for many a days we are forced to relive our past through the ones whom suffered through it with us...true love will always prevail because no matter how much man falls...

    love never fails...

    thanks for the insight bro'..keep ya head up...you've made the changes now its up to them to forgive...the hardest part is the waiting...
