    I'm "17", and I'm as fly as hell, :cool:
    look at me girls...can't you tell?

    Rapping is my greatest fame,
    I rapp so well, it became my name.

    I rapp about pimps and ho#'s on the street,
    I rapp about the ho#'s, that fall at my feet.

    My eyes are dreamy...I know I'm fine,
    cause I witnessed 4 girls one night, standing in line.

    Then my rapps got "tighter" my head got "bigger",
    and for a minute or two :wink: ...I was the bigger ni@@er.

    At "17", I met this "die for" red-bone, :sand:
    so I left those "low-class" ho#'s alone.

    Yeah, me and miss "ta die for", kicked it for awhile,
    but I found that this "red-bone" ...wasn't :nono: my style.

    By the age of "19" ...I've had more ho#'s than a little,
    that's when I met, my true love...Ka-lila. :love:

    We kicked it well, and we bored two "seeds",
    they were my two angel's :angel1: ...yes indeed.

    It was a "girl" for her, and a "boy" for me,
    I'm as happy as any one man can be.

    Years have passed, and I'm now "28",
    and I decided to live right...a little too late. :crying:

    Remember the "red-bone", that I rocked for days?
    well that same "die for" red-bone, gave me the AIDS :uzi:

    Things ain't always "what" and "how" they appear,
    that "ta die for" red-bone...died last year.

    Now I'm standing in line, I'm at 'death's door,
    on my way out...I can't hold on no more. :crying:

    Dear God, have mercy...look what I did,
    it's not just me...I infected... :spinstar: my kids :spinstar:

    This is my nephew, we buried him Sept. 7th...on his birthday.

    May he rest in peace. No words will do this justice. For although it is a tale poetically spun, the fact that it is not fictional, makes me do more than just pause. Aids does not discriminate, there is no particular "look" that one has that can assure you that someone is not infected. If this piece can influence even one person to be extra careful in the heat of the moment, then you have done a great service. So, thank you for that queent, and I am so, so sorry for your loss.

    Thanks Watz,
    For your support and luv.
    I am willing to put his short life on display, if it causes some of us to think twice before leaping. I believe in that old saying...
    "Before you let yourself go...make sure you can , get yourself back"

    Makes a lot of sense to me (bubble captions) ...
    "throns are very noticeable but...some daredevils still reach out and touch"
    thanks for the luv.
