Deceit

Deceit

Not falling for your lies
Revealing your disguise

Elated I didn’t release my heart to you
Bigger and better opportunities I pursue

I deserve more respect than you have given
But all is forgiven

Because it’s not my place to judge
It’s not even worth me holding a grudge

I am not that same person anymore
No longer making the same mistakes as before

The difference is that I love and respect me now
Demanding what I deserve, I vow

Not wasting time in sorrow
Looking forward to a brighter tomorrow

Not even worthy of shedding a tear
When I know my heart is sincere

No longer giving to the undeserved
Especially when it’s unearned

No longer serving a purpose, cutting off all ties
Seeing truth beyond blatant falsies and deceit

I feel the exact same way which is driving my move to ATL. Time to weed people out and move in to bigger and better things.

I love you lady-happy holidays to you & your family. I honestly believe 30's are a special time when God sets to work on who we really are, like we are allowed to play up until the end of our twenties but come the thirties it's time for major ground work.

Kudos sis. that peace that surpasses all understanding is a wonderful thing. a like to call it a place of contentment. I love this poem. I think that it is wonderful that people see the light in you (us) as we all continue to grow. Kudos again lady.
