A poem from my new book "When Your Words Are Just Not Enough - thoughts from a young black woman"

True Shit 



Right now you might think he's as perfect as it gets

But he's probably thinking of ways to jump off this ship

But you're too in love with the fake ass romance

Too believe what exist ain’t really worth all the risk

That you feel obligated to persist for the sake of them

But they won't be the ones at home raising his kids

While he's out with the boys catching up on fun that's he's missed

Because one day vows were took on an accident

Accidents occur but what he’s doing seems intentionally

Young minds make young mistakes just let him grow up a bit

Because when the shit hits the fan are you sure he wont duck again

Or will he pull a bitch move like he did when you moved off to college



Now she’s coming at you like there’s some male organs under there

Speaking adjectives that only make sense in her ear

But you claim that she down when you down now you say that you found the ONE

But the one has intentions that will get a brotha arrested

Can't you analyze what's in between those lines

She keeps a team on the side organized so you won't find the truth

The truth she never will be never could be never was she

But you see a diamond somewhere in that rough

But she sees a desperate punk who'll sell himself for love



Now who's going to cut first before the record ends

Or will this travel on as if its in its natural development

Trying to construct a relationship with false measurements and a unstable foundation

Will result in extensive damage to the outer and inner image

Expect some shifting within them walls

So whatever you think you got is fucked to the core

So save some hurt feelings and verbal cussing battles

And end that shit in the morning
