    Today I got fired for
    yelling at a client
    I get treated like a scrubb,
    but I’m the one labeled
    as defiant
    and all because I decided to
    take a stand, against the verbal
    assault , that degrades this man
    infact, maybe my defiance is
    in opposition to your alliance
    from which I am excluded
    only accepts me when my being
    appears diluted, or better yet,
    If I was a “tom” I’d be a safe bet
    Instead, you choose to play
    with my head and dismiss
    this prince because your ***
    I refuse to kiss, but that’s Aiiight
    my personona remains tight despite
    your feeble attempt to lure
    me into a fight…so you can
    have me arrested just for reacting
    when my manhood was tested
    Okay BOSS, you win
    I’m leaving …But I’ll be back
    Ready to attack
    locked and loaded,
    sportin’ a **** eatin’ grin

    my bruther
    hearing you on this
    conspiracy in the mix
    keep it cool
    the better man won
    you got another day in the sun
    so sad how they treat our peek
    so mean they can be
    we are strong as one
    freedom they wanna take
    pushing till you wanna burst
    and they get mad
    when it don't happen that way
    so you won again
    feeling you on this
    for real
    keep your focus
    your not alone
    Peace

    Anger Management

    When motivated by righteous anger react accordingly... two wrongs don't make a right- good read!

    dont be disgrutled or dismayed
    react like a king let Royalty be displayed
    let no one take thy crown from thee
    its all a part of a sneaky plea
    to tear you down
    let you drown
    but as u turn around...
    they tremble at the sight of your crown
    :)

    Thanks for the love. This is a piece I wrote out of frustration. I feel if I say it with words, the possibility of SNAPPIN' is out of reach. I am always the one exercising the three C's in tense situations. But every now and then we all want to GO OFF. I know I can't, I shouldn't, and usually i aint going to. But sometimes, It's relieving to say: "Maaaaaan, if I wasn't level headed, this is what you'd get!!

    Piece & Love Y'all
