At Last

To Mary J. Blige

Sister, you're gone through hell and back,
We know from what we heard but you know the facts
Of the drama playing like a daytime serial on TV
Or like a bad card being dealt dishonestly.
The bad breaks you've gone through and making bad press
And suddenly trying to get from under such mess.
"No More Drama" is your new theme song
And those around you who did you wrong
Are no longer parts of that "Young and Restless" life of hell
Or sometimes "Bold and Beautiful" days that just say, "oh well!"
The drama is finally gone
It's time to turn off the sad pitiful song
And start living again for once in your life my friend
Break away from the sadness and let it finally end
For this is your life
Now live it!!!!
April, 2004
