    if you gave me your shoes…

    if you gave me your shoes
    I don’t think that I could
    walk in them for a day
    but I understand your blues
    the many debts to society
    that you continue to pay
    for committing a crime
    like many others in the hood
    and although you already did the time
    your job applications are no good
    because if you check “yes”
    they just throw it in the trash
    and if you lie and check “no”
    then your job won’t last
    ‘cause as soon as they find out
    they’ll just let you go…
    :heart:
    but if it would make you feel
    a little bit better just to know
    that your love is surreal
    and with that seed we can grow…
    :heart:
    in my eyes you are a strong black man
    attempting to overcome the system
    doing the best that you can
    I know that the road is rough
    the journey is long but just remember
    to hold your head above the water
    let our love lead you on…

    What a beautiful way to encouage someone!

    It so sad to see the reality
    You never stop serving time.
    The look on their face when you looking for
    that job is something they cannot hide.
    Already got the color of our skin working
    against us...But be strong and don't give up...
    Dear Poetik you are wonderful...and Blessed
    among women, your compassion transcends
    the typical scribes of love, sex and rambling!
    You have me coming to your page scrambling....
    With sleep in my eyes I couldn't let the opportunity
    pass me by! I just have to tell you to pass it on...
    And let your loved one know he is not alone!

    Blessings on Ya House!:grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
