It’s been sixteen years since the tears,
Sixteen years since the pain.
Toni’s constant plea to Unbreak Her Heart
As I pledged never to Breathe Again.
The concoction should have been strong enough;
Doctors said it was definitely tough enough,
And for a few seconds, it was fade to black,
But a few seconds later, He sent me back.
What an incredible pinnacle!
Considered a miracle
All because I was played for the ultimate fool
When he smiled and told me, “April’s Fools”-
Wanted confirmation he did the ultimate crime
Sharing intimate whispers and his thickness
With a woman who wasn’t my slickness
And just because I didn’t see it with my own two eyes
I kept on believing his lies,
But broad daylight crushed all his alibis!
The rocking back and forth of the grey Slow Roller
As everyone’s angry emotions took over,
Except for mine, light switch got cut to off,
Not knowing in the later hours I’d get set off!
But people wonder why I bring this up-
This constant April shower
It’s simply because each year,
It keeps giving me power:
A constant reminder that each day is a blessing;
A constant lesson that no man is worth stressing,
Not to where ending it all is the only way;
I never would have gotten to where I am today
Or encountered such wonderful people
And met such wonderful souls.
I would have never known what was in store for me
Had I been successful and gotten buried six feet deep.
