    A guy that holds back a lady
    Telling her to stay
    In a woman’s place
    Wanting her to be
    This isn’t in her desire to be
    His bust it only baby

    Attempting to keep her from growing
    Knowing he can't run in it alone
    Not understanding relations
    Two can make it work
    Better than one

    To achieve is to believe
    He has other things up his sleeve
    Thinking it can be found in the streets

    When he finds he is stuck in the mud
    Old school thinking, plenty of corner hanging drinking
    Hanging and listening to laid back friends his buds.

    Week in week out no changes
    In his planning his future or life

    He drags down those who care about him
    Blames others for his shortcomings and strife

    All the time he didn't plan
    Not knowing the strength of a team
    Woman and Man

    Doesn't know that his future was close

    Those he failed to support
    Not trying to listen to reason
    Not giving his time... and what’s worse
    He knows he has to strive to survive?

    when you bet on a six
    and not a seven eleven
    there is no future heaven

    he knew the strength of the team
    he saw it all before

    he's just waiting for my foot soldiers
    to bust threw the door

    don't go to sleep

    u might not wake up anymore

    u gotta understand

    what it means

    to be

    a mark'd man

    u dead

    just tell me how u want it

    baby

    For Real!

    Thank You Sister for your read and flow.

    A man found in the situation, options,
    with the same outcome has to be appreciated within relations.
    The trip that puts him before the jury, and the Judge is his girl.
    Can be devastating all ending.
    Kiss goodbye brother to the world.
    The thing to avoid is running a game

    In my saddness and despair
    I think
    Of the tangled web they wove

    The emmy winning performance
    Underestimated my endurance

    due a grammy
    for being the hard knock life
    new name annie mae
    smakin her up like ike
    ike and tina i'm more of a nat turner
    the truth
    u'll need more then a burner

    I think

    ur roof is on fire

    you don't got no water?

    u said

    let the mother effer burn


    i'm hurt

    but i patch my battle wounds

    because I AM just waiting for my ride

    and in my heart hoping nobody has to die

    to night

    peace
    peace

    Let a woman be the best she can be, no reason to hold her back. Well said poet, well said.
