    i'm tired of bein' a surrogate boyfriend
    to every Helen Keller out there---blind, deaf, & dumb enough
    to fall for these bruthas' that don't feed you emotionally.

    tired of sistas usin' me to compensate for what their man lacks
    in feeling..

    tired of my exes keepin' in-touch, just to **** with my head
    ONE LAST TIME!!!

    tired of ugly *** bruthas endin' up with fine *** sistas'
    tired of talkin' to myself in the mirror, tellin' self, how good I look
    & that yall ain't ready for a brutha like me.

    I'm sick & tired of bein' horny all the time.
    I'm tired of sleepin' off my depression.. tired of makin' it appear,
    that I got it all together

    'cause I don't..

    tired of sistas' usin' age as an excuse, knowin' **** well
    if the script was flipp'd it'd be all good for them.

    I'm tired of holdin' this all in
    I'm 'bout to explode/ I'm tired of smilin' all the time
    when I feel like cryin'/ denyin' myself to release..

    I'm so ****in' tired of bein' emotionally constipated..

    go head on, my brotha!

    I heard this being spoken... I saw you gesticulating, hands flying, face contorting, body language screaming, head all cocked to the side.... the questioning look and stance of (WHA????) incredulity all ova you...

    go head on, my brotha...

    release yo self!

    I appreciate your skills, Poet! Thank you
