    Sometimes I sit & wonder how my child's mother
    could deny her from seeing the other half of her DNA provider.
    Hating the fact that she was taking on my features
    while she was growing stronger inside her.
    And how I spent the time necessary 2 ignite her mental's fire,
    Cuz when she was in my care, I taught her lessons
    that took over half of my lifetime 2 learn.
    Like how actions speak so much louder than words,
    And how it's nearly inevitable that you'll have 2 recross
    any bridges you've foolishly burned,
    Or how in life there are no such things as fair turns,
    And 2 always pray 4 the best but be prepared 4 the worst,
    Or that there's nothing wrong with shedding tears when hurt.

    Now, when I say hurt, I mean feeling physical pain,
    Not feeling betrayed or experiencing shame,
    Cuz if U cried everytime your emotions were tried,
    You'd be crying almost every day.
    By surviving mental warfare is the way true warriors are made.
    I told her your lifespan will be shortened if U constantly bombard your heart with hate,
    But it's okay 2 be in serious dislike of someone's ways.
    I tell her that our seperation is just a temporary phase,
    And how when she gets a little bit older she'll have the power 2 change it...
    Cuz nowadays, kids are gettin' divorced from their parents.

    See, on the day of her birth, I began reinventing myself
    so I'd be the example everyone in her life is compared with...
    And I've declared since she's a woman child,
    I'll never call another woman a ***** or h0e...
    They'll just be women who ignorance has misinformed.
    Hopefully, she'll be back with me before she becomes one.
    Now, don't get me wrong when I say I think
    it was a huge mistake that I didn't wait 2 help create her,
    Cuz she's not an accident...
    Her mother is.
    If she's not having abortions, she's having other kids...

    That's not the lifestyle my princess should experience.
    That's why I live my life so seriously.
    Cuz I'm trying 2 get her here with me.
    Then it'll be like living in Zion.
    So I drive on like a draft horse with blinders on.
    My tunnel vision keeps me focused on the finish line
    & noone can turn me aside from my course...
    Except me.

    You are a King ...amoung men. Turning toward the "right" is the best thing you can/did do for self...and then child. Momma's girl...but daddy's "pearl" As soon as time permits, she will be in your life, as she is apart of it. Keep batting...you got it going on.

    positive, my applause to you, for your dedication to your daughter to despite the struggles with her mother. unfortunately children are the ones who suffer when one parent tries to use them against the other. best wishes to you with your situation. loved the realness of your flow

    Poet...it is so moving to have you back in our presence
    You've been gone...much too long
    and this piece...was like water in the desert for me
    a desert...where you had not been
    I was so excited to see your name I had to take
    a double take...

    But this piece...made my soul cry with pride
    for all the fathers and Black warrior kings...like you
    You've always been so true...
    and I've always admired the way that light in you
    shown through your work...

    Overflowing...with love & admiration,
    Sage
