    ©You can have that…

    Go ahead baby have that
    All that I worked so hard to earn
    By the long tedious hours – sweat off of my browers
    Kissing the time clock –bypassing lunch and all that..

    Go ahead and get that..

    Things by way of price tags
    Ching ching in the grocery stores
    Yard flags hanging outside our front door

    China Cabinets – refrigerator magnets
    72 inch TV
    Pictures on the wall to honor our families

    Have all that…

    Long days gone by – misery lingering around in every corner
    Dreading facing each other every ******* morning…

    Flashing lights, police reports
    Kids screaming why.
    Beautiful chairs on the front porch..

    Did you get that…

    Well get this

    Hands around my neck
    My life flashing in front of me
    Limited Edition Ford Explorer in the color of Ivory…

    Have that…

    3-bedroom house full of furniture,
    Clothes, shoes, hats
    Everything
    that was a part of me..
    Restraining orders- court orders
    Using my pregnant stomach as an ashtray, while I bathe in bath water.

    I could go on forever and a day about all these material things
    That people cherish day to day.

    But I found out the hard way

    Material things was part of a dream.
    I woke up just in time


    To give you your material nightmare,
    In order to keep my peace of mind​

    Very...very...very nice. You have a style all your own. :D

    Good advice...lessons of life. Sometimes, you give up too much to get so many things. A peace of mine is priceless...and beautiful. Protect it.

    :thanks: for sharing a part of you with us.

    Just echoing the aforementioned thoughts, this was a very original way to speak on this...giving away all that is material, and saving yourself the most prized possession. Very well done.

    And many times, it just take a :grouphug: to restore our life, and pride. And all the things we thought meant something to us...is meaningless...
