The Wrong Dream

Poem By Juanita Richardson

before i speak allow me to get on my knees
i gotta give thanks to G o d
for finally awaking me
from such a bad dream
it was so hard to believe what happend to me
it hurt me so bad
cause i gave so much willingly
and all i ever wanted
was for him to be real with me
Maybe it was just our destiny
though I thought he'd always be there
protecting me
but in the end he could have been
the death of me
and i had to give up
when i saw what was happening
that chapter in life was finally complete
and it was naive of me to believe
that we could actually be
together as one living happily
it feels good to look back now
cause im the one laughing
everyone else always knew
that he was bad for me
and i remember how much he use to get mad at me
what a way to start off the 21st century
and up until this point
i never knew why he was sent to me
we were definitely
not meant to be
we were nothing alike
i fell in love with a dream
and its still hard to believe
after all that he did for me
and all that we went through
the best choice i ever mad was leaving dude
but i wont lie
i thought i could make his dream come true
nearly half way through

Here We Go Again

instinctively i proceed with caution
somehow im never the solution to the question
just another addition to the problem
understanding the mechanics and dynamics of the situation

Get Over It

no matter how much time continues to goes by
no matter how many times i break down and cry
i can't get over this heart ache
i can seem to find peace


just wanted to make a difference
just wanted for him to be addicted
just need someone to talk to
just thought i'd have a spot in his heart too


i am ready to do what is neccessary
not knowing what the outcome maybe
though in order to achieve
one must first believe


ow could u do this to me?
how could you say you loved me and treat me this way?
how was it possible for you to take my love forgranted?
what could have possible made you act the way you did?


i wanna know the truth
i wanna whats good with you
yo i been reaching out to you
and i been preaching out to you
