    Weird Mathematics

    The number of times you’ve lied, cheated, and disappointed me:
    Too many
    The number of times I opened my arms to you, allowing you to come back:
    More than I can count
    The number of times you’ve taken my heart and stepped on it with your size 13s:
    Numerous
    The number of sleepless nights I’ve endured, tossing and turning, wondering where the hell you could be:
    Countless
    The number of tears that have stained my pillow:
    Innumerable
    The number of times I’ll let the next man treat me like that:
    Zero
    The number of times I’ll let the next man beat down my spirit:
    Never again
    The number of times I’ll let the next man turn me away from my friends and family:
    Not ever
    The number of times I now look in the mirror and say, “Girl, I’m proud of you”:
    Constantly
    The number of times I smile instead of frown and laugh instead of cry:
    Consistently
    The summation of the beautiful, intelligent, successful black woman that I am:
    Unquantifiable

    I have to disagree with you on that, it is not weird mathematics, it's real mathematics. Thats what I love a sista girl getting over it and getting on with it! Fantastic job
