Seeing The Sunrise - Poem by Nikiesha Richards

I walk the streets holding my head down in shame
My eyes filled up with tears each time I hear your name
Honestly I thought that you just could be the one for me
But now it hurts to know the truth that you could not be

You wouldn’t think twice before you went and cheat
Running behind each and every woman you meet
Apparently the sweet candy wasn’t sweet enough at home
So for you another night of hunting, and me another night alone

Ha! Well that day is gone jack, I’m holding my head up high
Instead of walking in fact, I think I just learn how to fly
You took advantage of your freedom to do you wanted to do
But I always told you your actions would come back to haunt you

I was so naïve, to think I was too smart to be tricked
Now you’re whimpering like a puppy who has just been licked
Acting as if you were big, but now you look real small
Wanting me to sympathize with you, hmm you don’t know me at all

You looking for somebody, anybody to take you out of your mess
But you see that’s what you get for putting me through all that stress
I can’t feel sorry for someone like you who never seem to care
When I was looking for you, you were never there

Sadly for you I’m no longer the pushover I was before
Seeing you in bereavement picking your face up off the floor
I didn’t always do what I should but I did the best that I could
To you I wasn’t good enough, but to others to you I was too good


I don’t have the heart to let you hurt me like that again
Boo, your time in my life has now come to an end
Wow, I can’t believe I felt for a womanizing skirt chaser
Thank God I wrote with pencil so I can rub you out with my eraser
