    I wish that just for one second I could stop loving black folks so much
    Then I'd be able to give you the beatdown you so much richly deserve
    Time after time I keep giving you another chance because we are one
    And everytime you make me want to fight you like you're the enemy
    Because your actions be making me think you're against us not for us
    Why are you always acting like it will kill you to do that which is right
    Everytime I try to uplift us, there you are setting us back a generation
    One of these days you are going to be looking for me to get you out
    But I will have finally learned to stop feeling your problems soul deep
    And there'll be nothing you can say because I gave you my very best
    So when it happens please remeber you started burning this bridge


    Nobody gets under my skin like a brother or sister who just won't do right

    Sometimes, even the most patient and understanding among us, gets tired, and the weight of it all gets real heavy. Well expressed release piece here.

    even those who are wrongdoers will cross ova , we all at some point get tired but hold on
    don't give up or in to the weak and lost just set the path and leave a guide and keep stride
    toward yourself goals and freedom soon it will catch on .....
