How Real Love Is

Let me start by stating love is not easy

Love does not come fast

Cause I’m only 21

And honestly I been working my ass off for love

Sometimes I think it won’t come

So I settle for just a woman’s touch

But I’m young

I got a lifetime

To find

What I feel is the right one

But it’s a shame cuz I fear the women of my generation

Focus solely on payment

And skip the need for intelligent conversation

The population of material girls

Has grown since Madonna

And it seems like every girl I knew in high school

Is somebody’s baby mama

And the rest think a relationship

Is all about the drama

What happened?

What happened to talking?

Midnight walking

Looking up at the sky

Exchanging our goals in life

When did it all become a business transaction?

Sometimes I think people get married just for the taxes

I have yet to meet someone who isn’t easily enraged

About another girl looking my way

Or hearing

“Why dat chick, be all on yo facebook page”

I don’t need that

I don’t deserve it

I mean I'm far from perfect

But I’m far from worthless

I just ask for a lil more maturity

Less insecurity

More attention for me

Without the need for jewelry

I’m just wondering if that’s too much to ask

But I have hope that Ill stumble on a girl

Whose mind is shaped

To handle the weight of a mature relationship

That understands the concept of partnership

And knows that I do everything to make them happy

And will do the same for me

So in time I’ll see

 If there’s hope for my love life just yet

And I’m willing to bet

She’s out there

Just waiting to see just how real

Love feels

Like me,

Just waiting to see how real love is
