Seven years of no one listening,
and parents dictating who I was to be with,
brought me this ring.
The ring with 7 stones symbolizing the past,
matched with a gold band under it representing the future.
And from this ring,
thanks to the man who stated I was his everything,
all I have witnessed is pain.
From his inferiority complex
mixed with emotional downplays,
to a slap-in-the-face paternity test
from sneaking around with his EX...
This ring has brought me nothing but stress.
However, when I feel my lowest
and life in this hellhole becomes unbearable,
I stare at this ring.
It has given me many material things
accounting for what is really missing.
Others look and say they are blessings,
and that I should thank GOD everyday for this ring...
from where many see
but only a few know.
from where nothing but heartache grows.
a promise built upon guilt and lies.
symbolizes my marriage, which will be my demise.
