This is where I’m exactly supposed to be
Nowhere close to perfect is how you may see me
Thank God it’s not up to you
If I left it up to you to make that call; you would keep me burning in hell
If I left it up to them I’d still be angry at the outer circle
Continuously fighting a battle whose only purpose is to grow
I know you have been unable to tell
That I’m really not who I say I am
It took me some time to recognize what was happening to me:
I was transforming into the one He always knew me to be.
Original sin is over for me
It finally came to me whom had been carrying me.
I learned and agreed with His plan during our first conversation at the age of ten.
Confused as hell is how my quiet times were spent in the years to come
Yet I kept moving as agreed during that first conversation.
Took every step meant for me.
The whore, the housewife, believe it, all me.
All that time the One I’d known since the beginning had been looking for me.
When He saw me on the floor I was crooked in chains unable to run anymore.
He didn’t care where I’d been.
He would pay any price just for me.
What about His life for my life?
Oh, that’s paid in full.
I saw the One who had removed the chains and made my crooked body straight.
My body was becoming His vessel and I was able to meet me again.
The hustle is over!
Exactly as He promised,
Mind, body and spirit aligned at the end.
I opened His gift and how beautiful it was;
To have square one given back to me
Perfectly, perfected, perfection
Just as I thought it would be.
I always had just one wish
Someone to love me as hard as I loved them; unconditional in sweet bliss.
Due to my haste I thought I had found my true but love was not what I had found
Remembering my wish he didn’t get his knockdown
After healing from the wounds
My wish was granted to me
Come to find out the one I’d always wished for
1.) Because you’re 43.
2.) Because you can’t afford to buy another drink.
3.) Because no matter how many drinks you buy her she still won’t invite you to her place.
4.) Because you can’t afford another baby’s mama.
5.) Because you don’t want herpes.
6.) Because someone in this club has a gun and you don’t know who it is.
7.) Because you don’t want to get shot in the face for doing something that you won’t even be able to remember.
8.) Because you have work in the morning.
9.) Because whenever you drink too much alcohol it makes you poop a lot the next day.
10.) Because no matter how old you get you still can’t handle your alcohol.
11.) Because when you dance too much it makes your forehead sweat thus
drawing attention to your receding hairline.
12.) Because you have asthma.
