My mother once told me that love wasn’t a game, I said “ma, these boys is silly and they’re all the same.”
She said “mind games are fun, but you might end up playing with the wrong one.”
She sat me down and started dropping jewels. I rolled my eyes thinking “Im never gona fall for any of these fools.”
She said “you might not believe me but I was once young too, I had plenty boys trying to get it just like you.”
She told me love hurts like hell when you fall deep, and unrequited love hurts enough to stop your heart beat.
Sometimes what you think is love is really lust. Most teenage boys just want to bag girls like it’s a must.
It’s a necessity to have bragging rights, they’ll tell you whatever you want to hear if you turn off the lights.
She told me when you love hard things can get heavy quick, you gotta keep a cool head and make sure not to slip.
All it takes is one time, to have your dreams take the back seat over a few seconds of bliss.
It’s hard enough when babies make more babies; but its worse when young girls never get to become young ladies.
What you don’t know CAN & WILL hurt you; never put it on someone else to look out for you.
You are your own protector so guard your body as such; “he said he loves me” is never enough.
There’s too much out here to go about it so carelessly, the last thing you want to catch is an STD or HIV.
We live in a world where things aren’t cut and dry, sometimes you gotta dig deeper and question why.
