They Say



I just wrote this piece in the last couple hours... Its a Spoken Word piece and I may revise it later, but its fresh with energy, so I wanted to just send it out to you guys... Enjoy... Bless... Marisol


They Say

They say I shouldn’t Love so much,
Shouldn’t reveal so much,
Should hold my tongue for just once,
Make them wonder and such

They Say ,“Honey, It’s a cold world out there and you shouldn’t Trust so much”
“Not everyone’s sweet like you, so don’t you Smile so much”
“You’re born alone and die alone, so don’t you stress him so much”

And me, with my rose-colored glasses even when the suns no longer shining,
Continue to wear my heart on my sleeve, even when its grown too cold to walk these streets without our jackets and our masks.

Show my face and speak with grace.
Remain steadfast in the knowing that my Brave Heart can rest safe among these
weary travelers when all the world’s their stage.
Actors made from fiction, words perfected with their diction
Reciting previously rehearsed lines such as:
“I’ve never felt like this”
such as:
“Its like I’ve known you forever” and such as,
“Maybe you and I could get together sometime”

And upon morning’s arrival and words denial,
I contemplate their "advice" when they told me,

“Maybe you shouldn’t Love so quick,
Make them read between the lines a bit.
You know, it always works when you act like a bitch,
I mean, look at what Jessica did and now she’s hitched”

Am I the only One who believes in Keepin it Real these days?
The only one who sees its not a one way street and you gotta travel both ways?
Should I have to pay the price because your mother never showed you enough affection?
Told you, you were nothing less than perfection
Taught you women weren’t toys for your collection
Should I have to work extra hard to attain some love, respect, and honesty?
Should I have to stay awake at home til 4 am just so you can lie next to me?

Questions posed by women when they look for Love in the wrong direction,
Searchin outside, rather than within, when Love’s all they’ve ever been.
Dealin with the wanna-be rock stars,
Amateur ballers, C. E. NOs in their rented sports cars
with their egos ablaze, shining light on their good ol’ days
of pick-up lines, and one-night-stands, and easy girls who’ll do just about anything to say “I’m with The Band”.

It’s sad to see men becoming blind when they see a Real Woman before them,
Too scared to handle a Goddess, so they ignore them.
And I take it all in stride, because I know who I am inside,
The Queen with a Spirit Greater than any lie you tell,
any hopeless expectations you fail,
Because what is Pure and Real will always prevail.

and So I ask you...
Would it hurt for you to care so much?
Think before you speak for once.
Know your words carry life, so take them more seriously for once.
Step out of your bubble and take a look at what’s inside for once.

And then maybe you’ll recognize…
This IS a woman who Loves that Much,
Who Deserves So Much,
Who is More Than Enough.

So next time when you see Her in Her Radiance, Love, and Light,
Do yourself a favor and Treat Her as Such.

this the pure honesty and such a great pouring out of ya true feelings but on the counter point i say women do the same thing to men sometimes they are even worse and never pay attention to the man that has everything they ever wanted only because he respected from the jump sad truth
