Got My Back

You hurt me,
I hurt you,
That's just the way it goes,

You swing,
Then I swing,
We'll both be throwing blows,

You blacked my eye,
I busted up your car,
Bat didn't fix my face but now you cant go very far,

You call me a bitch,
I said your mother,
And now your sleeping with another,

You slapped my face and broke my jaw,
Nothing was said,
Yeah, It's better if I say nothing at all,

Had your first child,
Yes.. Had,
Cause though my boy was innocent,
he was killed by his own dad,

Ten years together,
No love,
And probably thousand of fist fights,
Can't honestly count how many we've had,

But through all this I'll never ever leave,
Cause though it pains me to be with you,
I know you'll never leave me,

It's comforting, and yet so sad,
But as long as your mine and I'm yours,
No one's ever leaving,
No matter how bad.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
