now that the hype of valentine’s day is over, where has love gone?
and i'm not talking about yesterday's "demonstration" of love, i mean genuinely...where has true love and respect actually gone?
remember r&b in the early 2000’s where love was the essence of us all growing up. big sis ashanti telling girls how "foolish" she was to let silly nonsense boys in her life (now some of you girls are doing that willy nilly)
uncle usher showing us in "you got it bad" how to dance in the rain for the love of your life (now we are making our girlfriends get out of the car and walk in the rain because she turned the music down and you found that disrespectful)
older cousins jagged edge making us feel like we’ve just walked out of heaven after messing up things with our girlfriend (nowadays we'd gladly rather walk hand-in-hand to hell with side-chicks)
and let’s not forget about everyone's favourite God-father maxwell who literally gave us the blueprint of how to truly love a woman in “this woman's work” (but no-one is trying to hear that anymore)
