I've had many men in my life,
Not one to this day has done me right,
Trying to focus on one man,
Show him my vision of peace conquering our lands,
Instead he’d rather blow plans,
All in my text inbox just to pull down my pants,
Now the lust comes rushing,
Now my blood flow is flushing,
Creating the empty spaces full of unrecited knowledge
Traded with passion that he desires more than learning my mind.
I’m trying to make difference in this world,
Or at least inspire,
The man that I need has to be ready to build empire,
Tryna find my spots, think he callin shots, meanwhile my birthday is forgotten,
He tugs my heart along a joyride so hard it fell out socket.
All I ever wanted was to give my all to a man,
Fully capable of understanding there is compromise in love, life.
I’m so ready to be wife,
And I have neglected me,
While he is steadily on the run, in the streets, never checkin for me,
I’m in class, trying to make time pass,
Hoping that the next is everlasting.
The ship has wrecked,
I’m living reckless,
My heart is cold,
He has no regrets.
He tells me It’s over,
I want closure…..
Why do men do this to good women?
