Smile, 'Chile
Don't let that sucka make you cry
You are so much better than that
Hush, Chile',dry your eye

Come, Chile', don't you fret none
You got mo' to live fo', gurl
You got yougin's what love you fo' who you are
And enuf' love in you to cover the world

Laugh, Chile', no mo' frownin'
Go on out and buy some new clothes
Make yo'sef feel all new and polished
get yo'nails done and yo' toes

Then go out to the danceflo' and dance to tunes that are soothin'
Have a time there, let down you' hair
I promise dem men will all try to court you
And that sucka won't be in yo' mind nowhere

And trust, Chile', in God-yo' maker
He make the sun rise and set
And one day yo' true love will find you
And yo' needs and wants will fo'eva be met

Live life for today

Tomorrow is not promised so we must live life for today.
No need to be closed off or silent-there's too much to do and so much more to say.
If I had a dime for every time I stayed silent because I feared that the world wouldn't appreciate my stance-
then I'd be richer than Oprah Winfrey, but so saddened because I missed my chance
(to say the things I should have said before it was too late
or to jump at the chance when it was in front of me instead of waiting until it was too late).

Another four letter "L" word

If a pill existed, I'd take it
Just to get over the pain
Of never again being in your arms
Or feeling your touch again

If a time machine existed, I'd get in it
Just to find my way back to you
To say the things I should have said
And to do the things I was too afraid to do

But our love was so very tainted
It was wrong, but it felt so right
Our days were filled with laughter
And unimaginable passion filled our nights

At some point I realized that the love was not real
It was a fantasy that we both fulfilled
And nothing so sweet could remain
When the depth was no more than mere thrills

Lust is another four letter "L" word
I think we both hypnotized by it
Lies is another four letter "L" word
And at the time it had a better fit

Than to tell the truth and be honest
Enough to admit that the end was near
We ran from it and into each other's arms so many nights
Because our hearts were filled with fear

Sometimes you find the right one
But the time isn't right; you know
Like maybe we were too young or maybe we were too broke
Or maybe we were too impatient to go slow

Regardless of what happened with us
I just wish I could take back the pain
Because even though our love wasn't real
I'd wish we were back friends again
