~Emotional Shock~

Updated on June 15, 2016

~Prologue~

Turning Victim into Victorious?

Source

~Practice what you preach~

Go ahead, take your best shot, others have tried

I've been called everthing but a child of God, some have even lied

you think you have it hard, welcome to my back yard

where the poodles turn into rockweilders and chew up the bull dogs

its like a circus act, if it wasn't for God I would probally crack

you got your feelings hurt, so did I, that's because we spent to much time allowing to much to slide

being the bigger person, trying to understand, thinking logically, playing right into their hand

I've read every chapter in the book, my favorite one was how to become an emotional crook

I was trampled from cover to cover, life didn't miss a beat, it was like riding an emotional roller coaster only I was the only victim in the seat

every page of my life felt like it was orchestrated for defeat, life even invited friends to take a peek

I guess I'm the only one bold enough to say it, but family is definitely over rated, Oh yes! thats right, and excuse me if thats a painful bite, but if you would pull my file you'ed understand my plight

I call a spade a spad and I don't cut any corners, I've been wearing that jacket to long, its time to clean house, everybody on their own

being a daughter was a hard position, a sister even worst, being a wife has been quite an experience, but being a mother should have been rehearsed

life has taught me that family always comes first, but if God isn't in the equation someone will definitely get hurt

I'm tired of being a victim of circumstance this roller coarster ride is to rough, I'm getting off at the next stop and calling their bluff

      OMG.. I love this its my favorite thus far... Mama always said watch out for your friends but be careful of the family members you hang around... I didnt understand what she meant until i felt their wrath... It was so very sad but a lesson learned...
