    Hood politics

    This a collection of poetry right
    This is my book right
    Let me let u in on something

    I’m not the voice
    You can speak thru me
    Feel me…

    Young lives..
    This for da block
    Parallel to being perpendicular
    I ride for u, we both vehicular
    Homicide, cuz we both coincide
    With pride, we can longer hide
    From the call from above
    Charles called me scrub
    …..scrubville…he was right
    we all beg for a mic
    we gottta a voice, but how do we speak
    when something stands between bliss and bleak
    see bliss is a spirit and so is bleak
    hot food cold food we both eat

    sometimes the path is cold
    nose running
    and we search for someone to hold
    some of us hold a sweet, a cup of barre
    I watched the demise of my people fall like tobacco from cigars
    As we split this and get high
    There’s gotta be more, its mysterious like foggy sky
    Why..
    Is the question I pose
    Where is hope, when we get success and stick our nose
    Up at other blacks, what a act
    It’s like we got a little bit and we got trapped
    This ain’t rule but we should clap back
    And reclaim that which we rush to get at
    But when u leave don’t act like u can’t come back
    To those who wish they could replay that
    It’s not too late
    We got a do what we gotta do
    As men and women, there’s more than blades and nails
    We can build with blades and nails


    a lil something to my hood

    "And reclaim that which we rush to get"


    I say this line over and over. Everytime I say it, I get new understanding about our struggle as black people and humanity as a whole. Thanks and Peace!
