Sylvia Loven Carter (June 13,1963 / Dallas, Texas)
Are so You Thought...
The truth is you did shake the world that I'd became use to.
were you hoping I'd go over the edge? that the world that I was sharing with you would end my peace of mind would leave me?
'Are so you thought'
I've been asked why did I settle and get comfortable in you're CHAOS
I did plan to Love you till the end of one of our lives.
The truth is you did shake the world that I'd become use to.
you started treating me as if I didn't deserve the very best
As I remember the many times
how you made it a habit to disrespect me as often as you could
So I thought I'd keep on dealing with and taking you're ignorance, you'd come to your senses oh well.
I know that it should have been a no-brainier now that it's over
I've got to get together can't do it by my self I need Jesus to help me
this is what I've been dealt
I know you think you've won
and that's sad that you think so.
I've got to get it together...
I have been given strength for the battle.
