You Can't Give What You Ain't Got

Soooo...I was going through my notebook and enjoyed reading some things I had wrote a few years back. I only shared the contents of this one with one other person and they told me they liked it so I figured, why not share with my followers. I hope you all dig it as much as we did...Once again, let me release my disclaimer...."Now keep in mind I'm an artist and I'm sensitive about my -ish! So ya be nice about it!"


What I needed you to give was:
EMPATHY
SYMPATHY
CARING
SHARING
AND CONSIDERATION
...BUT....instead I hear a small voice whispering in my ear
YOU CAN'T GIVE WHAT YOU AIN'T GOT”

What I needed you to give was:
INTIMACY
COMPANIONSHIP
FRIENDSHIP
GENUINE INTEREST
AND CONCERN
….BUT instead my mind goes off and re-collects
YOU CAN'T GIVE WHAT YOU AIN'T GOT”

What I needed you to give was:
PASSION
LOVE BEYOND COMPREHENSION
AFFECTION
UNDERSTANDING
AND DEVOTION
…..BUT instead I am left remembering
YOU CAN'T GIVE WHAT YOU AIN'T GOT”

What I wanted to give YOU was:
BITTERNESS
RESENTMENT
HATRED
AND MALICE
…..BUT instead I thank GOD
I CAN'T GIVE YOU WHAT I AIN'T GOT”

the constant reminder of this simple phrase hurts to the core, the one thing that brings solace to my spirit though is this:

EVEN THOUGH YOU COULDN'T GIVE WHAT YOU AIN'T GOT, I AM SO GLAD THAT WHAT YOU GOT, ANOTHER MAN'S NOT.....

  1. There are windows around the entire Rolex booth, and in the replica watches uk display case windows are many existing Rolex watches as well as the new ones. The new ones have a little "new" label next to them and are covered with a little cloth hood. When the time is right (usually in the early afternoon on the press-only day of replica watches uk Basel) Rolex opens up the case and pulls off the hoods–pretty much all at the same time–to reveal the new watches. After that it is a de facto point of conversation to discuss "the new Rolex watches" and everyone asks each other whether replica watches uk the new Rolex watches are enough, or properly new, or interesting. There is usually a consensus that rolex replica sale the watches will sell but that Rolex hopefully will "go further more next year." Nevertheless, we continue to be eager and esteemed about what Rolex has up its sleeves. In a few more days we will participate in replica watches uk the unveiling ceremony once again!
