    :?:
    Why do i get accused of being stuck up?
    When all i want is better
    Why do i get accused of being angry?
    When it's just hurt in my eyes that you see
    From all the terrible blows that have been dealt to me
    Why should I smile?
    Cause some dirty ol' man said my a** was nice?
    And all i can think of are the winos at the corner store
    Gawking
    And Hawking
    And Stalking
    Why should i be accused of hating men?
    When all they've ever done is hate on me
    Never understood me
    Never took the time to really know me
    Forget what you've heard
    Why do i hold so much pain and hurt?
    Why can't i just let it go?
    Why should i have to do anything at all?
    Why did i come into this world not wanted by them?
    Perceived as a threat by them
    To strong to hold but easy to throw away
    And when i have to carry this pain
    Day after Day after Day
    Why do you ask me Why?

    all the why and no answers of thee
    those men was not to be , i feel da
    pain u stain in my heart and the lost
    love to be mend so reach to the
    heaven's from within and know ya
    worth is da power from sin
    why ! O' why can't it be seen
    that true grace will replace the pain
    of a pure love to embrace u da same

    of sin flow on i felt ya here , why don't ask me why !

    Um, this was deep. (*Snapping my fingers sister*) It was soul deep and much more. You know what, I often ask myself the same questions that you asked. Just like you, I have yet a answer. I don't know, maybe it's just human nature to act that way. Either way, good poem poet. Nice job.

    Thank you two so much for the words of encouragement. I'm glad someone was able to feel me in this poem.

    Great flow. Questions so many questions and no one is willing to provide an answer. So your right to ask why! I like your poetry, keep sharing.

    Guys will get angry and call a lady names, ( showing all his immaturity and insecurity ) because deep inside he knows there is no relationship, no conversation, and no smile unless she ( wants it ) allows it. So who has the power?
