    for three long years I suffered
    enduring beatings and rage
    I really felt I had enough
    and that was just a stage
    of learning and just getting real
    made me what I am today
    I thought the worst was over
    that is, until YOU looked my way

    love at first sight or so I thought
    so beautiful and complete
    I never thought the day we met
    you'd come 2 me and speak
    you asked me if I'd sing 4 u
    I was like, sure that's fine
    you never could have imagined
    what was racing through my mind

    couldn't believe the Universe
    had thought so fit to see
    the two of us uniting
    despite you and despite me
    nine long months of ups and downs
    treating you like a king
    nine long months you wasted
    like I didn't mean a thing

    I learned what true love isn't
    certainly, without a doubt
    all giving, no receiving
    is not what it's all about
    I thought that what I went through
    entitled me to make my choice
    wanted it all: gorgeous, unique
    ambition and a voice

    be careful what you wish for
    and what you think you deserve
    no matter what you've gone through
    never test God's will or nerve
    I thought I was exempted
    from what I've already seen
    and walked right into Hell
    cuz I was living in a dream

    {I guess what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, now I have the strength of 2 battles under my belt, bring it on, what you got next, please bring it on}

    Sister this is excellent writing. The message is clear and the lessons we learn benefit us for sure. Sometimes the same thing comes with a different dress and face and we are certainly not beyond being deceived momentarily. One lesson is that we must take things for what they are because try as try can, we cannot make them what they aint.

    Peace and Blessings.
