    As a "man"
    he knew he didn't feel
    it was right...
    allowing another man/woman
    to make decisions
    for personal lifetime
    expenditures
    that cost him less than
    the expense of
    a hotel room, a glass of
    cheap wine and its
    headache from a
    hangover
    the day after ~

    ...She always
    felt that he didn't
    really care ...feeling
    as though he took
    responsibility too lightly
    blowing off "care"
    as the wind
    brushes
    perspiration away
    from his brow
    never did
    he once volunteer ~~

    'Accountabilities'
    he dismissed
    as they
    came
    2nd, or 3rd to
    reality
    ...then she was
    always left to
    handle fear with care...

    Until she had enough
    of hounding him
    for loose change
    or nickels and dimes
    for necessities' sake
    the child they had
    together needed
    many things
    because
    children grow
    and from somewhere
    "money" must flow
    to maintain the
    upkeep on
    little Jasmin
    or even lil' Steve
    ...but as new
    parents
    the two could
    never concede
    and surrender
    themselves~~
    Each of them
    sought after
    financial
    stability....

    Brothas and sistas
    don't let the
    FAMILY COURT DIVISION
    decide your history's
    future...literally
    child support officers
    instructing young
    father's on
    what's "Fair"
    Sustenance
    granted
    to one parent
    pitting
    the two
    against one another
    a court that
    DIVIDES
    the FAMILY

    Fathers must recognize
    the system
    and own up to their
    responsibilities
    ~likewise~
    Mothers be patient
    ...until you exhaust
    all possibilities...
    and finally
    we must all pray
    that parents will
    wake up and
    begin to learn
    that adult sex
    without
    condoms may
    become
    a child's debt
    turned into
    a mother and fathers
    shared liability
