    I don't need and certainly won't bleed you
    it's true
    I have seen many times the evil that men do
    personal attacks against my personality
    like some coup
    claiming the righteousness of saints -when you "ain't"
    your acknowledgements are faint
    and with my blood you'll never paint
    ideology of what a poet has to see
    or what a poet has to be
    to be poetically received...

    Won't play games
    just bring this pain
    cause its my pleasure
    my treasure
    is my gift to giff the gab
    beyond measure
    but to most
    I'll be that failure
    and not commit
    to repeat sanskrit
    I continually evolve
    reguergitate
    monotonous doctrines
    I won't participate
    or worse yet
    post themes of sex
    just to get a few hits
    I'd rather you understand
    and not just stand erect...

    see, I don't need you
    but in reality I do
    then does this means
    to some degree
    ...satisfy you?
    cause if I can't get by
    somehow
    then I must rely
    and if that's fa'sho
    I'd rather pack my things and go, cause...

    never claimed to be any more than i am
    a Sister to my Brotherman

    very nice peace Brotherman ... I started to flow a response
    but i'm soooo rusty ... gosh ... so I'll just say that i enjoyed this
    and unpack those bags ... 'cause you're home now
    free to be ...

    :heart:

    This Is So Write On Brotherman!!!!

    The reading of this poem almost made me stood up...not erect or anythang like dat, but it spoke to my attitude on posting poetry here at this forum and other places.

    I won't participate
    or worse yet
    post themes of sex
    just to get a few hits
    I'd rather you understand
    and not just stand erect...

    WoW....

    Thanks for the holla and yes, sometimes I gotta let folks know that I need stimulation from them -not just props but a motivational factor from other's artistry and sincerety. who am I though, to demand as much. Love back at 'cha all the same.
