For The Sake Of The Child

by Blackpearl

To all of my baby's mama's out there
That use the children as a way of revenge
You too got something waiting for you
Never stop a man from being a father
You should be happy you got one that even bothers
To try to visit and do for his child
Because you still want him, do you have to act wild?
To get back at him do you have to use the child?
You are the women that give US ladies the bad names
Children should not be pawns in the game
If you weren't so preoccupied
With who he has in his ride
You would see
that there are other men
Out there like fish in the sea
That want to take the time to get to know you
But first you must change your attitude
Take some time off and get over your pain
You never know, with a little growth from you both
There might be a future ahead
But if there isn't, it wasn't meant to be
Let go of the man but let him still play daddy
Don't trip off your child being around another woman
Trust him to be a father
Like he trusts you to be a mother
Don't trip off of 'em
Look I know that it's hard to move on with your life
But holding on to this pain will prevent you
From one day becoming somebody's wife
Know that God has someone for you but
You will have to change
In front of the kids, don't call their father names
It's not healthy and not hurting anyone but the kids
They don't realize the mess that he did to you
But you do
But keep your pain away from you child
You stop him from being a father now, but
What you gone do when the child
Has gone wild
And won't listen to you
Don't call his daddy now
You should have let him have a relationship with his father
When he WANTED to bother
