    holding my rosey inner circle close to me
    keeping guard over stolen affection
    though mama told me time and time again
    ghosts aren't lasting
    but what does she know right?
    i'm grown and on my own
    ready to take part
    holding on to that rosey inner circle
    just in case they try to break my heart
    walking with an unsure defiance
    the rosey inner circle close to me
    though sometimes i catch myself wondering
    why it has me on my knees
    i can't be fooled by slick talk
    cause its my tool of defense
    thanks to my rosey inner circle
    i don't have to repent
    i've seen it all before
    thanks to my circle i've heard it too
    knowing just what to do
    when the transgressors knock at the door
    i don't give them a chance
    dismiss without taking a second look
    my rosey inner circle said thats what needs to be done
    i can't be deceived by innocent crooks
    time and again i shut the door hard
    my rosey inner circle my only friend
    their love and tenderness i denied
    quickly brought trickery to an end
    my circle said its just fine
    though night after night i still cried
    then one afternoon i heard another lie
    that sounded a lot like truth
    my rosey inner circle said don't listen
    you'll just get your emotions abused
    this voice kept right on calling
    said that my happiness was past yonder gate
    i took that stroll with concerned hesitation
    my rosey inner circle was screaming wait!
    over the threshold i stepped uneasily
    prepared to be knocked to the ground
    to my surprise
    and total happiness
    true love is what i had found
    i turned back to see my rosey inner circle
    wanted to say goodbye
    but it was too late
    standing there in its place
    was what was holding me all that time
    fear, anger, lonliness and heartbreak...

    oh DEE JAY!!!

    my brotha, what words can I conjure from some other place to convey the depth I perceived from this masterpiece? Ohhh, you are delving into the corners of the heart and mind...those areas that keep the soul on lock...and we are none the wiser until we take a step, and then another, away from the former comforts of our private forests.

    thank you brotha...thank you

    a

    yo

    this was real son
    you know sometimes when you get in a new relationship the other party wants you to cut everybody off not realizing you had a life b4 them

    so hang on to your peeps
    cause when it's all said and done
    they'll be the ones in your corner


    Peace From Da Streets
