    Walk away my sister...
    If he can't treat you right...

    Don't be his booty call..
    Even if you want it bad 2night..

    Throw away his number....
    Change your number too...

    Cause if you don't love yourself that much..
    Then there is no way that he will love you...

    It's hard sometimes to be alone...
    But in solitude you can hear your thoughts...

    If you don't slow down.. take some time for you
    Then you are, ebonically speaking, "taking shorts"

    What's your worth...
    Do you even know...
    I hate to say..
    I don't think so...

    You was made from his rib...
    You had his kid...
    Even mann'd the home when he was down...

    But if he ain't down for you .. how your down for him..

    THEN YOU DON'T NEED HIM AROUND.

    Question:

    Do you love yourself?
    Do you even know what love is?

    Are you just holding on the what you've got?
    Do you know what love is?

    Are you crying every night.. can't take care of your kids?
    Do you know what love is?

    I don't know what love is... All I know is what's in my heart...

    But here is the catch 20/20...

    I KNOW WHAT LOVE IS NOT!!!!

    GET YOUR MIND RIGHT!

    So true, you have to love yourself, regardless. Love yourself enough to be more than a one night stand, or an old standby when he can't find anyone else to be with. Another hard hitting piece.
    Miss Lady,
    While I am enjoying your pen, the maximum amount of pieces each poet is allowed to have on the front page of the Get Your Flow On forum is 5. Right now, you have 7 pieces on the front page. The only poet who is allowed an excess of 5 pieces is the current Poet of the Week. Please reaquaint yourself with our Poetic Rules of Etiquette. Thank you.

    That was a great write. So so true. Women really need to ask themselves these questions. I really enjoyed reading this.

    THANK YOU 100X EVERYBODY...


    I just have so much love and respect for black women.... I just wish each one would realize just how special she is........ and our men as well...

    At the end of the day we are the ones that put up with all of it.... and we are the ones that remain by their sides when they need us...

    It always amazes me how much we are willing to take..... how much we have to take.... and how many tears we have to cry....

    There are certain tears we will never escape.... but there are those that we can.... just simply by knowing how powerful and beautiful we are...

    To me love is giving someone control over your emotions and trusting them enough not to violate them intentionally...

    A man should be the head of the home.... but if he lost then he can't lead you anywhere but to hardache and pain.............

    I know I've followed to places I didn't want to go........ but I ain't crazy..

    CRAZY IS TO CONTINUE THE SAME BEHAVIOR AND EXPECT DIFFERENT RESULTS.........

    CHANGE HAS TO COME FROM WITHIN.....

    THESE ARE JUST THINGS THAT I HAVE LEARNED... AND MY PERCEPTIONS AS I GROW AND LEARN...

    I'M STILL TRYING TO GROW AND LEARN........

    I LOVE YA'LL!
