I Loved You On Purpose

I loved you on purpose…

though lies and betrayal ultimately lead to our demise.

I reminisce on each facet of our existence together.

It started simply enough with a compliment and a smile.

“Hi. You look absolutely beautiful. It is such a pleasure to meet you.” etc…

Names exchanged followed by phone numbers.

Pleasant conversation lead to time spent together.

I prayed for you to be mine not knowing what I was getting myself into.

I loved you on…

The bank is closed…

I am sorry to inform you but there are insufficient funds for what you wish to withdraw.

There is no more money to help you get to where you are going and leave me behind

There is no more love to drain me and leave me heartbroken

There is nothing left but me and all my flaws.

I have always been willing to deposit into your bank and keep you full, nourished and content.

However; it has come to my attention that you have constantly withdrawn from my bank without any…

Moving On

The hardest thing I've ever done

Is leave you boy and just move on

Four years have gone and

I still reminisce

About your touch and your gentle kiss

We used to laugh

We used to cry

We had good times

but we had to say goodbye

The hardest thing I ever did was leave you

But it was the best thing I did

You were no good for me and I knew that

But it took a while for me to see

that you and me could never be

I loved you true

I loved…

Back to the beginning

Little Girl

Who do you thing you are?

Yes, I called you little

because that is what you are

in my mind

Walking around

switchin' left to right

back arched

chest sticking out

showing all that you got

Clothes barely covering

the mystery of your womanhood

or at least the womanhood you should have

You leave nothing to the imagination

Where is the mystery?

Where is the respect?

Sensuality doesn't exist

Bet you don't even…

HAPPY NEW YEAR

This kind one is said and done

I can almost see the setting of the sun

I realize now what it's all about

Give up to Jesus Christ now and sell out

THE PRESENE OF CHRIST IN YOUR CHRISTMAS

THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST IN YOUR CHRISTMAS

The presence of Christ in your Christmas

Is the ultimate holiday

His obedience servant allows it

And let his have his way

Say yes to the King of all Kings

And in your heart he must reign

The presence of Christ in your Christmas

Should always be your main thing

It is more than just one day

Every day he should reign in your heart

It’s never too late to accept him

Today…

LYING' ASS BITCH - THE ROOTS DRUMMER QUESTLOVE

Enoch, he is hardly being persecuted.  That was very classless, and not the place for him to make such a statement.

Don Christian - December 7, 2011

That's the point. It was classless for blacks to ridicule Herman Cain by calling him buffoon, fool, ignorant, a black embarrassment,…

BLACKS BETRAY HERMAN CAIN WHILE WHITES PULL THEIR STRINGS

...Not to mention how Arnold Swartzeneeger had a baby by another woman under the same roof as his wife lived and breathed and he is still white America’s favorite son and hero.

What is pathetic however is how they got black people to turn on their own (Herman Cain) and now these same black people that echoed the sentiment of the media are quiet as church mice concerning the remaining white candidates

.

When Rick Perry did not know the voting age blacks did not denounce the…
