watzinaname Elizabeth... How you've changed during the years, Some say that you're just boring, but one shouldn't take to heart all that one hears.. You'll always own part of my heart, for in you I found home, so that's a given first half of my childhood was you, long before those other places I was livin Lived downtown on Magnolia, kickball was fun til the ball went flying into the garden next door My favorite teacher at School 20 was Miss Able and I think Pimpeos was the name of the corner store My mother cooked greens and chicken at Miss Inez' restaurant, and pressed hair at the beauty shop Uptown, I'd make some change sometimes by helping to clean up, put some coins into the jukebox and grooved to some Motown Met one of my best friends on Court St. in Elizabeth She became my daughter's Godmother The last thing I ever thought was that I'd have the pleasure of encountering yet another... One more good friend, a different home skillet I allowed my gut instincts to simply lead me to ask some more questions, and found out there was a deeper reason I always admired Sista Queent I am still so astonished, don't quite know what to say the world gets smaller and smaller each and every day... QueenTswana Born and raised on Bond & Third, the happiest, noisest kids you ever heard. It brings me joy to think of those times, in the backyard playing..a bunch of small minds. My Great grandma walked me to school everyday, at school #20 the school grounds we play. Home from school, straight to the store, a little storefront sitting across from our door. Then there were the bullies on the block, chasing us home, with sticks and rocks. Several years, growing up in this town, wonder if all my friends still around? The Tucker's, The Pryors..wow to many to name, I wonder do they still look the same? Cutting across the field to the grocery spot, even had relatives that lived across the lot, and a whole bunch of memories, I never forgot. Mom cleaned houses, to keep food on the table, even did odd jobs..when she was able. Elizabeth is the place, where my heart grew, and from time to time..I think of you. but.. Back to reality of today... there's one more thing I'm compelled to say. Awhile ago, I stepped in this site.. it was such a pleasure and a delite, to feel a connection the first moment I came, I found my dear homie...it's Watzinaname . ps. "Yeah, it's a very, very small whirl in this world, and I'm quite honored that we landed in the same corner of the world"
