    Some one find me a hard hat because I’m in the serious process of reconstruction
    Reconstructing my voice to sound more like meaning full things
    Reconstructing the way I walk to be more free of stressful meaningless things
    I’m processing the seriousness of this life reconstruction
    And I realize it’s not for real
    I’m reconstructing the way I feel about being broke and broke down
    But trying not to clown myself on how I really feel about the causes
    I’m dying to reconstruct my feelings about love for loved ones
    While no longer dreaming of destructing the one I once loved most
    Reconstructing my consistent hopes of having true commitment given when I give
    Living today reconstructing the way I feel about what must be done tomorrow
    Dying to reconstruct the way I follow the most high
    Without sighs and frequent doubts of my fate
    Trying to give up midnight date rapes with the devil but he finds it so sexy when I inhale his constant hate thrusts
    Reconstructing
    I’m totally renovating my insides
    That dark place I use to cry and couldn’t fathom the thought of being denied, while being denied
    Reconstructing the thought of ever ******* anyone over the way I was done
    Through
    I never choked so hard on what I hallucinated to be my wedding band in my throat
    But realities games proved to me that I was hanging from my own suicide rope
    Killing myself with lost hope
    Reconstructing
    Reconstructing my limitations to love, because I wasn’t loved….right
    Reconstructing the way I make love because he never stroked me right
    I’m reconstructing every piece of doing me that doesn’t some how revolve around my make up realm of positivity
    Because negativity kills
    So I’m reconstructing this black woman to
    Beyond all doubts
    Live

    This is so tyte, what mental images you provide during this reconstruction of you. You can borrow my hard hat anytime girl.
    MY favorite lines are :

    "I never choked so hard on what I hallucinated to be my wedding band in my throat
    But realities games proved to me that I was hanging from my own suicide rope
    Killing myself with lost hope"

    Man been there, done that!
