Life


I met her, a girl who just wanted to give it to me neat
This happened upon our first meet
Funny part She's that quite shy girl from down the street
After 6 or 7 dates in three weeks
We decided to meet up at my place for some drinks
We had 3 or 4 and shit started to get real
I said what about pregnancy, she said I take the pill
And Hiv? , she said are u for real
Do you want me, or are you just going to squill
I was mesmerized so I went with the thrill
Today it feels like I'm paying a never ending bill
I asked her how can you do this to me
She said, no remorse she feels
She got this from a guy like me
So I should leave her alone and just let her be
She might aswell have put a bullet through my head
But she gave me a choice to live or be dead
I never really listened to mama's advice never heard a word she said
She said these girls aren't good get to know her before you take her to bed
I'm living of ARV's, this isn't the life I planned
Its true you never know what you have until its gone
But this aint going nowhere so I guess that saying is wrong

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
