A Friend For A Boyfriend

Poem By Jeanette Matthews

Simone was happy and my best friend
Well until love struck her at the end
She met this guy name John
All we knew was that he was on the run

He lived on the other side of town
We was different from him and this we found
She talked to him at school and all
Kissing and holding hands in the hall

One Friday at the school game
Another boy asked Simone for her number and name
She told him just trying to entertain
And later that night she went home with bruises and John to blame

I threatened to tell, I'll be on snitch
I couldn't take not one part of it
He beat her day and night.
And things wasn't getting quite right

One day he hit her and she didn't hit back
She was dead and that's a mystery fact
John got away with the crime
And Simone won't come back this time.

Number Two

I have been number two that I can't take this any more
You don't love me because if you did there would be no one before
I'm too exclusive to come second in your life
If I have to wait on love then I should wait on being a wife

Lie To Me

This time I am asking you to lie
Because what you are saying can't be the truth, your just saying it to make me cry
Lie to me to make me feel they way that you made me feel before
Remember when you use to look me in my eyes and you would say I love you more

You Left This World

You left this world and I didn't share a tear
I don't know why I didn't feel pain but I felt fear
I felt as if you belonged where you were
And God arms surrounded by nothing but love and care

I Am Apart Of History

I am apart of history
History lies deep down inside of me
I am like Martin Luther King
Just like him I'm going to let freedom ring

Afraid Of You Or In Love With You

I think that I'm more afraid of you than in love with you
I use to be happy and impressed by the thing you would do
Now I fear of you snapping out
My mother warned me, she told me what getting to involved was about
