I Choose To Wait


You neglect me

Because I won't give in.

But I just can't see me

Committing such sin.

At least not with you,

I just can't take the risk

I won't give in no time soon,

I have to stay like this.

Because its so many diseases,

Like HIV.

I could never put back the pieces

If that happened to me.

Going each day

Not knowing if I will live.

I don't want to go that way

When I still have so much to give.

Its not my fault if you don't like it.

If you loved me you would wait.

I don't need you as a sidekick

You don't have to stay

If you really knew me you would know

After marriage is the way I want to go.

I've been tempted many times

But I never exempted a thought from my mind.

Its well worth the wait

In the future you wont regret.

So, if you want to make that mistake

Don't get me caught up in your mess!
