    Mother:

    The bread winner
    Commander in Chief
    You are at war with self

    Destruction is the only way
    For you to see the way of peace
    Lost in the scripture of God’s Law

    Love lost it touch with your reality
    The day you bore your seed
    Unplanted firmly in conviction

    Spiritual undertakings laid the rhythmic
    Path for the unborn child
    Unnatural birth pains steamed from the inner linings
    Of your thoughts

    At war with self when there is not war around you
    King Kong effect on every ones actions
    Elephant’s memory of when and where and how

    Your way or the highway

    Mother you are hurting in side
    I wish you could see that

    The Jeanie in the bottle
    Dead from your touch
    No turning around
    the negative when you force
    People power

    The sea witch is more compassionate
    than mothers touch
    Kisses of you make my skin crawl
    with fear words from your mouth to
    my ear make my heart stop beating

    Foot steps of you near my
    bedroom door make it hard to breathe
    I knew it was you that was taking over

    Where is my magic potion to make the spirit release you?
    Mother I wish you not to be at war with self
    I wish you to let go
    I wish for you to stand in the center
    of the cross road and breathe

    I wish for the winds of change to breathe
    upon your kissed sun dipped skin
    I wish for the sexiness of Oshun to
    play the forbidden tango in your women’s place
    I wish for the love that binds you to me to be released

    Mother you are boiling over out of control

    Releasing the pain often releases the love. Keep writing, I'll keep reading.

    YEH THIS WAS NICE A MOMMA'S BOY GUESS WE ALL ARE BU TLET ME DROP THIS RIGHT HERE

    Chilling brief getting fillings for my teeth which is an alloy
    Starting to itch oh boy, when the girls see my voice pitch will toy
    With their mind we share wine together and do whatever
    Dang fine butt in leather, “look boo you so true and clever”
    “Cats from the hood glow but how would you know?”
    “Well girl you red lips make my head trip and that flow
    In my heart,” look MADD no don’t even start I got to go
    Girl you some fine we can combine our bodies an oh
    Lotty dotty” “MADD you sound spotty I’m hogtie but must go
    Don’t be clown I’ll see you around” dang MADD tried
    To get some
