all the things we said

by chizoba
I said a lot of things growing up
I said I would not do a lot of things
i laid down a lot of rules
so many do's and don't
i swore i would never do them
they were never my intentions

Now in my prime
i am caught up in the shackles
of my constitution.
daily my rigid words melt
into flexible actions

I swear again
it was never my intentions
to rub lipstick on my lips
when I said I would not

Am sorry
i said it was an abomination
to defile my body
yet along the road
i lost track of common sense
gave up my pride
for pleasure and to please

It was forbidden to drink beer
yet now i merry in it
and dance around it clutch of intoxication

Even now
i am tempted to grab a cigarette stick
lit it up
inhale it ashy fregrance
and watch it smoke dance in facinating circles

Yes i said alot
maybe i was too young to mean them
isn't it true that we all ended
up doing all the things we said
we would never do
Let others and the author know if you liked it

Liked it alot?
