The failure of a relationship varies in reasons, but ultimately it stems from one/two believing it wouldn’t be in their benefit to continue. We can blame each other but it boils down to chemistry. Mix two substances that don’t belong together and it will blow up. We are groomed to put our best foot forward and once in the door show that the other foot has a defect. That advice does get us in the door but it doesn’t keep us there; hence the divorce rate being so high. Society puts a premium on instant gratification e.g. sex, money, and self-promotion, but the gratification will truly come from unity; taking the time to build a connection that will weather the storms, strengthen when tested, and most importantly be an example to link others. Let’s stop using our first date to be liked, and start using them to fall in-love. Allow the person across from you to know who they’re investing in “past”, “present”, and “future”. Let them know where you come from, who you are, and where you wish to be. Use God’s gift of choice to build a relationship that is based on two people merging to share the same lane, going to the same destination!!!!
Women don’t cry rape; they cry because they were raped. Any person that would allege being violated is committing the same crime as the violators. They are freeing five guilty while incarcerating ten innocent, twisting the law for revenge. She said “No”, so you thought you will take it. He said “No”, so you decide to act like he took it; both parties are taking advantage of the disadvantage. What did she do to be forcefully held down and penetrated? Was it her clothes, smell, smile? No you sick bastard, it was your lust for breaking down her will because she wasn’t willing. What did he do to be trialed? Was it his charm, calm, or his nice arms? No you trifling Bitch, it was rejection that now has the world questioning a man’s character whom showed character in preserving his innocence. Dam, now perpetrators are in court perpetuating just to find more people to perpetrate. I hate a thief, especially those that take something just because they can. They don’t just steal from you, they steal a part of you, that may never return. So, victims, know it isn’t your fault that people want to vindicate themselves by being vain, but it is your fault if you forfeit your right to fight because you feel their actions will be justified in justice!!!!
Hope is anything we wish for and are willing to die to make a reality. The belief in being the greatest is known in silence and understood in volume. Yet, we work at just fitting a standard when we have more to offer. We smile in the face of people we never want to know. We pity people that accomplished freedom we would never know. We want things that will cause more pain and leave behind the great pleasures of certainty. Yet, we molded a world where we would rather hang with a con artist then in the presence of a preacher. We would rather party than deal; blame than accept; disintegrate than grow. We did this! We choose to allow our differences to outweigh our similarities. We chose to feel sorry for ourselves instead of making sure our kids don’t have the same fate. We build a world on glass instead of stone. We shaped hope to be something we dream about and not live. A bright future is in our ability to merge many voices into one, several ideas into progression, and truth into religion!!!!
You cry tears of future mistakes and expect me to pack a life preserve. I can’t swim in the river of empty promises, because I will never be fulfilled; chance after chance looking for change, and have not found a dime. Our boat is leaking and we are miles from our destination. A captain should go down with the ship, but when the crew is questioning his authority, it may be time to test his luck with the sharks. Would rather get eaten alive with the belief of land, than stay in a boat with whose who lack it. I remember why we set sail, but I am forgetting where we are going. The circles have made me dizzy and I am losing my mind. The compass is my heart and it still leads to you, but the signal is fading!!!!
Trapped in the expectations of leadership, renders you the punch bag. Everyone spills something, and you’re designated to clean it up. Once you spill something, the steadiness of your command comes into question. Are you truly the leader for them? Can they truly rely on you? As if every success is erased with one failure. You’re always at work while everyone is vacationing; taking just enough time from relaxing just to peek over to assure you’re doing your job. They signed up for your team but lack faith in your methods. You’re continuously excelling, but they’re preparing for the time you’ll break. Why were you elected to power with no electricity? Every last volt is powering you just enough to cast light on them, then they’ll complain when you come up short. Being a leader is accepting you’re always being followed!!!!
You’re losing oxygen, suffocated by self-inflicted injuries. The wool is not over your eyes, it’s around your neck taking what life you have left. Are you eager to live, or is the mountain too steep to climb? You’re at rock bottom, but can dig yourself out. There is hope at the temperature of 180, the degree necessary to kill all your bad habits. One degree off and you’ll fall from the narrow path of redemption. I heard all your excuses and unlimited justifications, yet haven’t seen any proof that can justify nor excuse your behavior. You have been placing your sorrows into sorry to long; selling me empty bags of groceries, we can’t eat, which means there is no way we will survive. I have already forgiven you, but our chapter has become the end of this book. I advise you to walk up, because under those rocks is six feet of endless captivity!!!!
I wandered so far away, I am lost in a place I don’t recognize; funny, all I ever wanted was recognition. Thought I wasn’t getting enough attention, so I went searching for someone I “felt” would be more attentive, and that he was, in the beginning! The way he talks and holds me, breaks me. I remember your warm words and hot body; “I am”, matter of fact, “I am not” without you. I chased a ghost; now I am haunted by a love you once provided. I wandered so far away, I am lost in a place I don’t recognize!!!!
