    Wise Up

    I loved this man and there was nothing I wouldn't do
    'Tish be careful of that man,' was what he said, 'because a player recognizes a player and I'd do to you 10x worse
    if you gave me the opportunity to'

    but I love this man and there's nothing I wouldn't do
    I mean I would listen to him tell me I don't love you but yes I will screw you not only in the bed but I'll screw up your head
    if you allow me to

    but don't you understand I really love this man
    and there was nothing I wouldn't do
    I would let him treat me like a 2 dollar bill that no one wants, that man not only broke my heart but he broke my spirit because
    I gave him the power to

    but I love and I need this man
    and there was nothing I wouldn't do
    I mean I would let him use me and when adversaries came against me I would watch him betray me when
    I gave him control over me to

    but you see I loved this man and there was nothing I wouldn't do
    I would be blinded by love and couldn't see the truth, I would deny his actions that spoke "I don't love you"
    because I loved this man and there was nothing I wouldn't do
    I would have his son and let him leave me because he loves his son, oh, now he loves us, but now he has a girlfriend
    but I still love and think I need this man
    I mean I thought he was the king to sit on my throne, the foundation for my home, so are you really trying to tell me this man really isn't my husband, Lord?

    Experience can be a tough teacher,
    but often times it's the strongest reacher.

    you probably gave this person more love than they deserved
    you have a good heart through this piece

    go on and get something you can fulfill your wants and needs

    cause this person sounds like they didn't give you what you were giving them

    Peace will find you
    keep the faith

    thanks street so'ja

    i've learned about love the hard way,
    but i figure as long as i'm learning that's
    all that matters

    and yeah I believe to that what goes around
    eventually comes back around

    love

    VirtuousD....


    wise up... is such an appropriate title for this piece.

    see... how we always know what we should do...
    before anybody says a word?! but i do know that
    sometimes it's hard as hell to get the heart to
    agree with the mind. but we live&learn... ryght?

    AlwaysPeace.
