    Look i've been holding this one for too long now so if i didn't let it go soon i was gonna burst. I guarantee that those who need to read will not....Fear of the truth...

    Where’s the one who will stand next to me
    When the world crashes down on my mental
    Taking my thoughts and rearranging them so
    That I will fit the description of the next man

    And yet the next man was the past man whom
    Was the last man to stand and abuse and now
    I’m the one suffering from the mis-use of you
    And all I ever did was offer to you the true me

    Can’t you see past yesterday to see tomorrow?
    Is brighter with each day s long as you stand
    And not sit on the memories of afflicted pain
    By one who sought no other way to show
    Their misguided concept of real true manhood

    I am not the one who caused you pain and just
    Because my skin is dark and my back is strong
    And my vernacular reminds you of the latter do
    Not inflict upon me the atrocities of such for I do
    Not deserve to clean up the mess of another;

    You seek a real man and yet when one stands up
    Before you he is nothing more than a carbon Copy
    of the last maybe the least but much more The beast
    of your past whom you settled for In the first place

    I’m not hating on you so don’t hate on me for its
    Seems you only like it when I was always heated
    By your indiscriminant seed planting of control cuz
    You think I can’t see your subliminal attempts to
    Make me into another reason to believe all men are dogs

    Look closer with eyes open shut to understand that The
    one whom stands before you is not the lesser of Past
    evils nor is he one whom you settled for thinking You
    could get better so treat him as he walks and give Him
    the chance he deserves without convicting him before trial…

    Guilty but never proven innocent….

    Real men are more than just a concept in books, movies and soap operas

    So'ja,

    you brought this one out man. You posted a work that was pulling at somethings i was holding back for a while. When you dropped that one it opened the door for this one.The key is this: All men ever wanted was the chance to be accepted as individuals not to be compared to the media description or the pain of past relationships. Basically what i'm saying is to give a brotha a chance before beating them down with a bottle of "Haterade"

    ya know what i mean?

    thanks for the read bro' and i knows ya standing cuz we looking eye to eye...

    spoken well cindy...

    mainly here is the fact that brother's come into a relationship giving the other a fair chance and yet are foten put on the chopping block without even a word. Justice? All we want is a fair chance away from "Baby making, drug dealing, no good dog" titles.


    thanks for the read...
