    Destee,
    I hope you hear me
    Cause I'm gonna to tell you what you have done for me
    With the creation of this poetic paradise
    My mind has went from the sound screeching of a mice
    To the roaring of a lion in tha Astrialian outback
    Never to backtrack
    I was born and rised in tha Atlanta projects
    But you took me in never to look at me as another one of the rejects
    Giving me the extra confidence needed to stand politically correct
    The confidence that I needed to make my mind face problems head on direct
    Always taking the time to hear my voice like it was a natural reflex
    Gave me a opportunity to talk about the ATL projects and it's hex
    But always given me the strengthening to be the best
    You have given me friends that I will always remember
    Even when I get large and ride in my Bimmer
    I will forever remember you and those friends you gave me
    And the powerful words that they spreaded as well for me
    When I was lost
    Felt like my self esteem was going to be the cost
    You, and some of those friends helped me change my mind with a simple post
    It was that love and dedication that help me most


    Destee,
    I hope you hear me
    I'm really tryin' hard to tell you what you've done for me
    You as well as my poetic family
    Have help me finally see
    You have made me see who I really be
    And for this I want to thank thee
    I want to thank thee for strengthening me
    Poetically
    Fundamentally
    Educationally
    Mentally
    Carefully
    and Boldly
    Boldly, being who you are
    The godess in which you are
    The light I see in the distant, and never to far
    To lend a helping hand because you care
    And it's because of this I will always be there
    I will be there because I care
    I want to thank you Destee for always being there
    For being there for me, he or she
    Heck for always being there for everyone to share
