    I won't let you crack black jokes
    even if we're friends
    even if you were playing...you still know what you're saying
    don't get too comfortable
    don't utter that "N" word
    do you ever hear me say it? Even if I did
    you're not my kin
    see me in line
    I won't let you cut, slavery is behind us
    as you should be
    I'm bout' peace, but you see that line
    I drew it, not for you to cross
    but to ward you off
    let you know the limit
    for your own safety
    think before you speak
    even us quiet one's, us peaceful one's
    can bring discomfort and pain
    I'm bout' peace, but I'm still a man
    a black man at that
    I tell you because you forget
    I don't share her love
    so around my love, be gentleman like
    we're boys, but this one
    not a whore, not a skeez
    I'll pass the trees
    no problem with that
    but you know.......
    I'm bout' peace, but I hate confrontation
    it's a waste of time, though I don't retreat from it
    I love all....well some people....but remember I'm people
    I give respect when respects due
    and it's always due to me, since I respect you
    so I expect the same from you

    I read what triniti said. I agree with her 100%. This was a nice joint brother. I'm a peaceful brother also, but, every now and then you got to let the panther out on folks.

    feeling this kente...
    sometimes our mild persona
    or humble disposition is mistaken
    for weakness...but only a wise
    man knows that it's the quiet
    one you should truly be
    fearful of...

    hollow logs...make the loudest noise


    feeling this...
