    the flow is so many things to me
    at least it used to be
    thought it would be just about
    the poetry
    and the life reflected
    never thought it'd be truth neglected
    or perceptions redirected
    and now I ain't got the urge to
    chase down every lie
    nor to re-apply and re-apply
    truthful words
    that once spit they resemble
    pretzels in the hands of haters
    now I can do no right
    in their sight
    but that's alright
    it's just more drama to me
    I got enough wit' dealin' in reality
    they tellin' me gramps is in his last days
    so I relentlessly endlessly pray
    it ain't no joke so I don't bother to say
    out loud how now he may pass away
    caught up in the spray
    of words untrue
    just another brotha to undo
    ain't no fear here
    ain't nothing to hide
    don't hold ya breath
    thinkin' I'll learn to love a game or a lie
    exactly what do they want from me
    if they don't show and proove
    what am I s'posed to see
    everybody got a right to
    the picture they paint
    but I lived long enough
    to know what love ain't
    I won't sell my soul
    or give up self-control
    to some trick wit an axe to grind
    when love could be so simple
    that's not what's on they mind
    time and time
    I could bust they groove
    but all I'm tryin' to do is just bus' a move
    yeah, the flow used to be the lick
    now I don't know what I'm s'posed to make of this ish

    Dear Skrybe pure in spirit and full of truth!

    My Daddy a Baptist minister used to tell me "Baby girl ever want to know if you doing something right?" "Look at all the people who will oppose you!"...Well to paraphrase him, you know the ones who talking ****...ain't got **** going on ! So you do what you do for the Glory and wonder of your uniqueness and beautiful soul. For your elder remember "Absent in the body and present with the Lord". Blessed be the name of the Lord! I will pray your strength, but you are going to be alright, I know you are, cause you are to...Blessed to "stay" stressed! Grieve all you need to and scribe like you want to we will be right here...as for the rest of those who 'Hate unabashedly' ...well lets just "Pray a prayer of David for them"...I 'll tell you what that means in private.

    Blessings On Ya House!:grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:

    msluciousb, your words touch my heart and spirit
    and for that, I can't thank you enough!
    He's 82 but he could live to be 102 leave
    it up to me. But you are right in that there
    is a better place for him with the Lord.
    Much love and admiration to you sis!
