    tell me everything you know
    about Willie Lynch
    I remember you saying
    something cool
    like how you're gonna take
    a few of these no rappin' brothas
    to school
    and how you're gonna
    make a difference
    inch by inch
    there was also something
    about a circle of men
    rising above the system
    I heard everything you said
    yet I am challenged to understand
    how when someone extends you a hand
    you dis 'em
    I must tell you
    That I am surprised
    That you still don't know
    What a down *** chic looks like
    I thought you lived outside the matrix
    I would have never believed that
    you would treat me like a trick
    I promise you I don't trust every man
    who comes along
    D*mn sure don't start diggin' every brotha
    who plays me one of his songs
    I'm not picking through every deep pocket
    that comes my way
    That's why I always hate for you to pay
    I have been on my own for a long time
    I never **** with anybody
    Just always on the grind
    Puttin' it down for me and Micah
    I sure as he!! didn't expect to meet and like ya
    don't you know what Willie Lynch did?
    that he is the reason you ran and hid
    The system is an illusion
    It isn't an institution
    It's a state of mind
    Each and every one of us has to find
    the courage to feel the fear
    and do it anyway
    to recognize good when it comes
    and be willing to play
    even when some of the pieces are missing
    even when what comes is the last thing
    we've been wishing
    if you're really gonna help others rise
    above it
    then be the first one
    to dispense with the b*llsh!t
    here's some ****
    you can put your life on
    you said "KPI on your word just as well as your nuts"
    in the "system" everyone has words and balls
    in the "matrix" everyone wants to walk the hallowed halls
    of change
    you've heard the saying
    many are called
    and few are chosen
    that's really true
    because
    real soldiers never have
    come a dime a dozen
    which one are you?
    does everything always have to be too good to be true?

    *snappin fingers* ****, I can relate to this! I know some of these very same conscious brothers that will "build" with you, call you their "Earth", give you the weight of the Earth, the depth of the ocean, philosophize you down, and then never acknowledge or recognize you as the queen, as the down *** sista you really are. So often they bury themselves in book knowledge & rhetoric, and neglect to live & stand by their own words. It's frustrating for us sisters-----so I am so feeling this piece. A lot of these same brothers need to read this-----it would compel them to think and change. Thank you sista, for laying down the truth so hard.

    you know the worst part about this poem? I totally misread him and it turns out that my heart break was for nothing. Just a little momentary suffering for no reason at all.

    thanks for the comments though

    Well Done My Sista!

    Though it feels like time was wasted on someone who wasted your time remember we get something positive even from the bullshyt even if it's just knowing how to avoid it next time...
    Never give up on LOVE!
    Fresh from the trenches of the otha "Willie Lynches"!
    And I am still standing!

    Blessings On Ya House!

    well sista girl, i can definitely relate. its such a shame how some can be so cruel and inconsiderate in the game of love/relationships.

    "I must tell you
    That I am surprised
    That you still don't know
    What a down *** chic looks like
    I thought you lived outside the matrix
    I would have never believed that
    you would treat me like a trick"

    you said a mouthful then!!! nice drop. keep it coming!

    ~Kim~
