Let him go!
You say it's ok, he'll learn and change.
He promises to call but he doesn't, he shrugs it off and says he forgot.
You smile and say its ok.
He says he's going to come over, he doesn't and he gives you some feeble excuse.
You smile again and say ok.
His phone rings non stop when you're with him. Its always some girl or the other,
You ask, he says its his sister, his cousin and even his mother.
Ok, you say.
He slaps you occassionally, you take it, it has become the norm to you.
You think its because he loves you
...we correct those we love don't we...not in this case baby girl.
He always asks for money from you all the time and drives your car all over town, he can't keep a job,
You make excuses for him, he's still trying to find himself.
He's not interested in you other than for the physical reasons,
but you say it's ok, someday he'll fall in love with the real you.
He hurts you over and over again
But try as you might you can't leave.
You love him, or so you think.
You're afraid of being alone,
Unwanted, rejected, battered
Don't fool yourself girl, he ain't worth it.
Look in the mirror, you're fearfully and wonderfully made,
Don't settle for less,
Listen to me, sweet one,
Wait for the One,
Yes, the one who knows your worth,
The one who will treat you like the jewel you are
Shine on, sweet Diamond, shine on.
This one is for my sisters who are in dating relationships and deep down know that the men in their lives have gots to go!
