    do your thing,
    my brother...
    be a man
    nothing can stop you
    no stereotype
    or media
    can drop you if you know yourself
    and your God
    and with this rod
    you can part any seas of opposition
    obstruction
    and evil intention...
    did l mention
    my sister?

    it doesn't take a magazine
    cover
    to prove to me
    you're a queen, lover and woman
    strong
    like no other
    and what l mean is.... your will
    the real thrill
    is what's in your heart...
    although they depict you and l as apart &
    divisive
    l laugh because our union is priceless
    and with you l know how to build and yield...
    the pain you have l have
    and that's on my mother and my sister...

    my peeps hold your head up!!

    This is off the chain. I really like this.

    " do your thing,
    my brother...
    be a man
    nothing can stop you
    no stereotype
    or media
    can drop you if you know yourself
    and your God "

    Hold your head up, when you find yourself down. On one knee you start the next round. Never go down and stay on the mat. Don't ever be counted out in the battle. From one knee you continue to rise. Spare in the middle.. and capture your prize. LIFE!

    It doesn't take a mag or book.. for me to know your the center of my hook. When I'm fighting I do it for two. YOU!

    Your will is real.. and like j'hiah said.. it's the thrill of each and every breath I take. Oh I won't let any man.. in my presense take your diginity or grace. He must face me..that coward you see is weak. I don't stand for myself I know.. it's the love I have and fight to make it grow.

    What a " Union ". This is very nice j'hiah
