    Don't ask my neighbor http://youtu.be/DXdb

    Let me introduce you to 
    the song called "Don't ask my neighbor"
    by Nancy Wilson.

    See I would rather be called a hoe
    by this gutless , unaccountable
    society, than to be the type of
    woman that makes a
    living getting over on 
    a man.


    I'm addicted to the truth ,
    It's like my blood , my veins
    sweet juice.
    If you really want to know
    about me , ask me .


    Ask the horse's mouth, is a
    cliche` that resignates
    come to the source,
    don't take my verbal options
    leave me a fighting choice.


    In today's world, conflict
    is based on "he" said "she" said
    tactics. what happened to
    the facts, or are we just 
    gossip chasers.

    If ever asked what I gave in a relationship,
    friendship, business partnership , I would
    dilegently reply "I gave my best


    so with percipience I say 
    "don't ask my neighbor, come to me , 
    never ask the friends I hang around, 
    don't be afraid of what you see , 
    you'll find I love you". 

    Rather than to stir up 
    alot of confusion, 
    we need to come to 
    a respectful meeting of minds .
    You don't have to pick people's 
    brains , people are screaming 
    out to be heard . 


    If ever you find , it's too difficult 
    to deal with who I am based 
    on my past , my religion , race,
    gender , or political view, let me know. 
    I'll embrace the beauty of the 
    person you are, I'll mourn
    the times we shared, but always 
    remember that I cared


    I hold my chin in the air , 
    even when my worth 
    is cheated. For I realize
    that to love someone when I am 
    viewed as broken, used , is 
    not easy. To take your verbal
    slandering abuse is a pleasure at times 
    the more I mature emotionally, spiritually, 
    and mentally, I realize your dealing 
    with your own brokeness , damage, 
    and fear of failure. But to see 
    you grow into a strong male
    is truly worth it all.

    Enlightenment! Asking questions is the key to finding answers. Being able to go directly to a person and ask openly and frankly is a lost art. I love the wisdom in this one.........E
