    Since I was young growing up around the people
    In and out from grandparents house chilling wit ma cousins and my uncle
    From the first nintendo to MR.T
    Sesame Street was ill till the last show with Ernie
    Reading Rainbow inspired some thought
    Lavar Burton rocked tha spot
    Didn't have many friends that I knew
    Elementary I was like a running gazelle
    Taking after my dad wanting to be a track n field PRO STAR
    Swift when i was gurl I would run
    Raced guys and gurls kept up the pace and posture UP
    Wasn't really a tomboy although I kicked with my guy friends
    Playing RUGBEE, basketball, football,soccer, anything that was fun to me
    Moving around all across the BAY, Oakland,Berkely,San Jose,
    Fremont,San Bruno,Pleasenton Days,
    San Leandro,Hayward,Stockton,Sacramento,Santa Cruz,to L.A.
    First House got shot up so we had to pack up and get out
    Apartments from Apartments got me hyped
    Didn't have any money so I didn't mind
    For a moment IN & OUT OF DOORS... Hotels i dressed at night in my uniform
    Singing at my first TALENT SHOW when i was 6
    Lost my accompany track on the playground
    And crushed THERE IT LAY ON THE GROUND
    Had to sing accapella to Whitney's I BELIEVE THE CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE
    Where it begun my love affair with words and music art CULTURE
    Middle school wasn't too NEAT
    Hated on by da white gulz
    Didn't SEE TOO MANY OF MA PEEPZ
    They're weren't any coo guyz AT SCHOOL
    Highschool was still the same
    Had many acquaintances but never any CLIQUES,just heard many lies
    Bout the girl who was the freak around the school
    Turnin tricks with anyone who would stick it out
    Known for ma voice that was my choice
    BUT NEVER WENT TO DANCES OR ANY BOYFRIENDS TILL SENIOR YR. Except for a guy I used to talked to on the phone all the time
    We used to talk about doing tha NASTY, and BLACK POWER, AND BEING BROKE AND, FUTURISTIC HOPES AND MANY LAUGHTER...
    History faded to this day
    Had to go on my own ROAD
    Tried college dorms when I was 18
    Didn't have a car
    Stuck with a $4,000 debt
    No where to go
    So I walked away
    Got hooked up with a Muslim Hustla with 2 young kids, 2 baby mommas, and lost my virginity in a hotel with this other CLOWN, HIS BOI FROM BROOKLYN
    IN THE OTHER BED FROM US
    DURING RAMADAN
    AND HOLLOWEEN NIGHT FOR ME
    ... wanted 2 wives so I had to say GOODBYE
    Talked about RELIGOUS DEBATES AND MUHAMMED AND WEATHER JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD.
    THE CHRIST...
    Yes, breaking up was so hard
    Missed him he was my FIRST LUV
    AND MY FIRST THUG
    AND MY FIRST DATE
    he used to tell me I was beautiful, caress me in his arms, and kiss me till the night was long
    OUR MINDS WERE BUGGIN OUT
    Gotta do what ya gotta do for family
    Sacrafice yaself to keep kids happy and mother PROUD
    3 months in Sac Town so torn apart
    talked to different peeps when I was at home
    Yonkers,Kingston,Delaware,Florida,and the Yaay
    Left to L.A.
    TO pursue my dreams and another college sceme
    Gotta an apartment with some gurls, the main dame from Chi Town
    Her and her mom stiffed me for so much money
    During the summer have 5 credit cards from payin dat out
    Used to talk to a gent from L.A. workin at a record company
    Couldn't take any time out
    I Cheated and found another one
    He was a Pimp and a Hustla paying with 50's
    Wanted to fit me for the SUMMERTIME
    He lived in crime and had 3 kids and one on the way
    We got our monkey on but he left his drugs in my apt.
    In front of ma room mates
    Grew up in Prison and had a jacked up RIGHT thumb
    After I left, NIG almost went undone
    Asked me bout my where about then HUNG UP
    Felt his anger a year later felt sorry for his JONES
    FEININ real HEAVY to my bones
    Situations turned bad so I head to SACRAMENTO
    Confessed my past
    LOST AND EMPTY
    COULDN'T FIND ANY HOPE JUST IN MY SAVIOR
    FELT HIS STROKE SO I WOULD DOPE ON A YOLK EASIER AND SAFER
    Not fraid to be alone and do ma own
    THEY DIDN'T CHANGE HER
    someday wanted to visit NY
    SLAM SOME POETRY sing on stage at the APOLLO
    Maybe live there
    I wear bright colors, mix and match different pieces
    Going to take a sewing class for the designs I see in my spare time
    of creative gear to rock in a sequence
    Learn some new styles and techniques want to learn how to cook SPICES from the MIDDLE EAST
    Wanna visit London, Spain,Portugal,and ITALY'S sitely monumental architecures and artistess...
    RECORD AND SET NEW RELEASES, POETRY AND SONGS, LIKE JILL SCOTT'S PHILLY EASTIN
    coming through many STOPS on my WAY TO THE TOP but only for a SEASON been born to PERFORM and differently do it STRONG
    make money SMART to a new start
    UNIQUELY...

    Whew! you definitely been through the ringer and a hot pot of collard greens, but you've proved yourself a soul soldier along the way. All you have to do now is stay true to the dream and you'll eventually put your fists around it someday soon. I truly love your work and you blew my skinny tail away!!!

    Life is like that the ups that make us high, the downs that leave us crashing, thinking that we will never again get up, yet, we do. I first looked at the length of this and said oh boy, but it was so smooth I just sailed on thru. Thanks for sharing this.
