Young woman, Jesus is the savior
Not You
Keep your smile and save yourself first
Put your life jacket on first
Be happy
You have many choices
Never limit yourself with
lies or
one-sided history

Put your life jacket on first

You cannot be an ever-ending
dumping ground,
a foot-mat, or the last one on the list
You are better than that
Open your eyes
Why not you, why not now
Take care of your needs and wants
Be a business
Be happy

Put your life jacket on first

Date who you want
Marry who you want
Do your own stuff
Be happy
Be a business
They cannot dump you again, and again
Why not you, why not now
Be happy
Be a business

Put your life jacket on first

They will tell you stories
Lies, half-baked history
Don’t date that person
Don’t marry that person
Who are they dating?
Look around
Your turn
Be happy
Be a business

Put your life jacket on first

Do what makes you happy
Date anyone you want
Marry anyone you desire
Need more dating advice,
talk to tennis star, Serena Williams
Your turn
Be happy
Be a business

Put your life jacket on first

They cannot use you anymore,
Never again
They cannot use you anymore.
Look around, open your eyes
Your head up
Your shoulder squared
Smile more, do your own thing
They will never fool you again.

Put your life jacket on first.

WHY
are they telling you who to date or marry?
Control, power, abuse, insecurity, hypocrisy
Telling you staled stories
But, they are dating and marry anyone they want
History, Yep! They have history too
Control, violence, abuse, secret
Fix them no more, fix yourself
Open your eyes and do your own things.

Put your life jacket on first.

Time is up, be an Eagle — do your stuff.
You are not the savior, but Jesus Christ.
Have fun enjoying your fabulous life
Forgiveness is for all.
You need forgiveness too
Time is up
Game is on
You always voted for them
Now is your turn, vote for yourself
