I like to compare

A brand new relationship

To a brand new car

When a car is new

You wash and wax it

Very careful how you drive it

You don’t want to eat in it

Don’t want nobody parking near it

All because you don’t want

Anything to ruin the newness

As time goes by you

Become comfortable

To eat in it

And you don’t wash or wax it as much

Slack up doing the things

That you use to

Don’t take it in to check

To see if it needs repair

Unless you see or hear

A sign of trouble

Otherwise you only

Take it in once a year

For an inspection

Everything is wonderful

In the beginning when

The car was brand new

It was given lots of attention

Well a relationship/ marriage

Can be looked at the same way

Everything was great

In the beginning when

Things were new

That’s all good but what

Happens when scratches

Bumps and dents happen

Do you trade it in

To get a new one

No that’s not what you do

Have the mindset

That if you take care of it

It will take care of you

A Trade in

Could never become a classic

Have the 30 day tags

Turn into classic

I don’t know about you

But I want something that’s true

That holds value

Any relationship can make it

When it’s all brand new

What happens when trouble

Comes along

Do you stay or run along

Remember it’s not

About the easy stuff

It’s about the hard

So what will you do

Will you make the necessary

Repair to your relationship

When it needs it

Or treat it like an old car

And trade it in

I’m just sayin

  1. Nice way to remind all readers that any functional relationship needs some dedication and ‘maintenance’, and may be some mutual forgiving, too. The point is: Monetary things can be fun, for they are the opposite of real life’s consequences.

    A relationship needs kinda achievements, trust must be earned & preserved, the freedom of both, fickle as quicksilver, needs its places and moments… Sometimes my hurt and my wisdom are one, that is why shunning emotional pain can be foolish.
