write a short poem about someone or something you desperately feel no gratitude for (ie. an enemy), then show the positive aspects of that thing or person in your life....

You stole him away.
I cried every day.
You made fun of me,
But in the end you made me see
How strong I truly am.
How I can live without a man.
So despite all the fussing,
Your calls with all that cussing.
Thank you Casi.
For you made me see me.

You never got to know me,
You just wrote me of,
Read me like a front cover
of a book,
But did I care then,
Because I care now,
Because I was never your
friend to turn on.

The day is at it's end, but for you it's only just begining.

you're supposed to be my mentor, my boss,
but you can't manage your own life.
you talk the talk and walk the walk,
but you haven't a clue. i used to get
angry, i used to care. but now i see,
you were showing me all along how my own
staff might look at me!

I use to believe in laugter
Until you took it from me
I once believed in love
Now my eyes no longer see

Funny isn't that you have so much control
Funny isn't that with my heart you stole my life

Well my dear its my turn to turn your black heart red
For my heart now lies with another who means the words he said

You taught me how to play the monopoly game of
life
Its now your turn to not pass go you can not choose your wife

The darkness that once filled me
I passed right back to you
No matter how sincere you pretend
I now can see the truth

Amazingly I can not hate you
For you showed me love and hate
The love we shared was spiritual
I can now breathe again

With one last note I wish to say that
I thank you
For if I had not experienced you
I would not know how to play the game

(Don't you just hate when a man sinks to begging?)

It's called, In Control - its about two women who hate each other and have brought their friends into the foray.
