    sometime I long for those bad-*** days
    the days before I threw the .38 into the Hudson River
    when b**ch and mother f***er
    preceeded every conversation with a woman or a man
    the days when I was stupid
    when I didn't understand

    back in those days life was simple
    a simple life for my simple mind
    before the days of theatre, music and literature
    before the days of roots and sunshine

    born in an atmosphere of jail, and or death
    nothing really mattered but the day to day
    lived so easily without thought process
    confrontation the only way

    sometime I long for the days of anger
    anger in its basic form
    the remedy for a heart that was torn
    anger that filled my concrete world
    anger with me from the day I was born

    I didn't have to think
    didn't have to care
    anyone daring to get close to me
    had to be strong
    had to beware

    why do I sometime long for the bad-*** days?
    fear perhaps
    there is comfort in stupidity and ignorance
    a quick cover when you are afraid to know another side
    the other side
    can you really deal
    with what's really real
    do you have what it takes to learn and to grow?
    something a bad-*** will never know
    still......
    sometime I long for the days

    In agreement with Ms Diva... but I must add that my vision of this evolution is that of a flower...as it blossoms to show all its colors in the glorious sunlight. For we all are precious in His sight.

    It's all good.. as we live, we learn, & we share the knowledge.

    Say it, Poet.
