when love isnt enough and promise holds no truth
when the past already made its history and the present is put to use
when common sense and signs of fate dont seem to manage
when words lose their purpose and time is taken for granted
thats when its time to let the caged bird fly...

i provided the love
to this misguided dove
but i cant hide it from above
cuz even god knows its time to discuss
what we see in line for us

we know what u did and how i reacted
no beef, no tears, this is whats crafted
cuz mad or not, the sh*t happened
its not the incident thats important, its the reaction

youve been running and ive been chasing
ive been dwelling and you found a replacement
its obvious, im the rhythm to ur heartbeat
and every minute that im not there, its hard for u to breathe

but unfortunetly, with the cards given we're forced to deal
whether we like it ot not, we cant help how we feel
i love u, u love me and thats just being real
but time and change have had a chance to heal

i no longer cry
cuz the harder i try
the farther you climb
so i've armored these eyes
cuz the stronger survive

but its good to hear ur voice
i see you havent lost ur poise
but dont worry, im not here to toss some noise
cuz even though it DID hurt, i respect ur choice

But I still wanna be friends, I wanna keep the relation
Cuz we need eachother, I give u the patience
and you give me the assurance that Ive always been safe with

But love isnt enough and promise holds no truth
the past has made its history and the present is being put to use
common sense and signs of fate just dont seem to manage
our words hold no purpose and time was taken for granted
im letting YOU, my caged bird, fly away...

So fly south and if you honestly do not like it...
You know where ur nest is.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
