    U **** straight I saw you
    Trying to hide that Black Queen
    Behind that Crack Fiend
    Stumbling where u use to stroll
    Falling where u use to stand
    Begging where you’re very presence
    Would previously command

    Maybe you forgot who you are
    But I aint forgot shiiit
    I know you
    I remember when you sat upon your throne of beauty, knowledge and potential
    With the whole world before you
    with an unsurpassed heritage of survival as your legacy

    You need to remember for yourself
    And stop livin just for yourself
    Your kingdom needs its Queendom

    Your children are running the streets steeling, begging, selling…..
    Soul, spirit, body, dope, hope…..
    As they struggle to survive
    The reality of
    Missing
    What was meant to be

    Return to your place of glory
    And reclaim the
    What was meant to be
    For you yours and me
    Because You Where you ought to be is what I want to see

    So your King may return and
    Find his queen properly prepared
    And waiting for her King of Glory

    You were formed in HIS OWN image from His own Hand, not even the angels were created as you
    from the breath of His chest
    Nothing less

    Nice Piece

    And i truly enjoyed it. So real and so true. **I know what i wanted to say but it wouldn't let me write it that way... STRANGE*** Well anyways.. .here it is

    My King turned me into a crack queen!!!
    I loved you and stood beside you...
    supported your every decision...
    i trusted you with my own life...
    til the day you told me try the white...
    I heard about and knew it was wrong...
    But i was sure my baby wouldn't do me no harm...
    That first time was really scary...
    that anjel dust seemed just like the fairies...

    I couldn't believe you had me trying that ****...
    I'm trying to figure out where the hell you got it...
    How long have you been doing it....
    What about our kids...

    and then we got a pipe...
    and started pulling through the glass...
    We me and you...
    what we did together...
    I'm your childrens mother...
    now i'm addicted...
    Inflicted pain upon my child...
    to see her mommy acting wild...
    she caught me in the bathroom...
    You talking about leaving soon...
    What am I suppose to do...
    I know i need help....
    But all the pain i felt...
    i just need one....
    one more hit..and i'll be okay...

    I'm sorry baby...
    but your daddy's gone away...
    he say he couldn't stay...
    but he'll come by and visit you one day...

    I'm strong and still drug addicted...
    my children...and I are about to be evicted...
    so i moved to the projects...

    I don't stay home anymore...
    I need to feed the kids...
    so now i'm a crack head whore...
    Hope i got enough to get some groceries..
    after i buy my eight ball dhat is...
    and what bis...is it yours...
    I heard you were so high the other night...
    fell down five floors...

    The social services came by the other day....
    Said they were gonna take the kids away...
    Said someone reported me in...
    I think it was your cousin...

    Ain't like they trying to help...
    I know i need some help...
    Thanks to my crack king....

    and just when i thought

    crack was played out

    i remember clearly the crack wars of New York in starting in late 1984 thru till about 1994

    this drug changed the course of human history and not for the better

    nice work here shaz

    I wish that crack was played out but every time I travel through our nations capital I see that crack addiction is still live and well.
    Shaneak
    your peice discribes the cause of the effect so vividly and painfully making it plain to see that until we as a people learn to love and value ourselves and each other we will allways be subjected to the mute button of narcotics. As long as we continue to deplete our numbers through self medication we basically cast our votes for the status quoe as it exist today

    I see you see the same thing I see and I am glad to see you still can see the Queen beneith the Feind for the Queen is the life of the world and without her none of us would be here.

    Poetry never ceases to amaze me

    Shaz

    Poetry can tell a story/situation that penetrate, activate and elevate our minds/thinking in just a few lines/words, be it fantasy/reality. Awsome isn't it? Touching piece.

    Shaneak, Total reality. I've seen that happen often.(SAD)
    good job. Coco

    Thank you for seeing this and feeling the reality of these life tragidies. Behind every lost soul there is a story and a tail of lost hope. Money only signifies the succesfull aquisition of tangibles but when dope takes charge it takes everything life has afforded you, money, charicter, heart, mind and soul.
