    Is this a decision to make with heart or head?
    No time for signals to be misread.
    Focus on reality, the situation at real
    Stop worrying 'bout later and how you'll feel
    You need to take your stand
    Knowing he ain't ready to be your man
    No need to ask him
    sure two of us did sin
    But he has his wife
    and this is my life.
    He already has four
    always b$tchin bout being poor

    For 26 years I stayed free
    Priding myself on how I raised me
    Working two jobs, getting three degrees
    No matter what I did always to seize
    struggling to make it, pushing the bar
    wanting to prove that I could go far
    and now, hear I sit,
    f*&ckin dumb b*tch,
    Ashamed of myself, the situation I'm in
    None of these prizes I want to win.

    And, again I am torn,
    wracked with guilt and scorn
    All these consequences
    I have to face, no assurance
    regarding decisions I need to make.
    me i should embrace
    while I am holding . . .
    no, clinging onto you
    silently pleading . . .
    no, begging
    for you to tell me what to do.

    oh honey... i want to grab this woman and hug her and yell, "flee! get out! you deserve more than this!"

    ... but then i remember the heart, and i understand what makes it hard to go...

    Girl, after reading this........I agree with you
    We are living the same life through the pen
    I saw and heard myself so much in your words

    It's that forbidden fruit...the power it has, no one knows...
    until they take a bite.

    Emotive flow,
    Angelic

    I pray for your healing
    26 years you say
    You went clean you say
    baby you human...it happens every day
    like the soldier you are
    pick up and go
    get and and grow
    we all stumble and we all learn
    the game of life is a fall and burn
    but you will succeed
    let the wound bleed
    as you continue on and this pain you feel
    I pray for you to continually heal :)
