    Like everyone else, I said this year I'm going to try something new.
    I'm going study harder, think broader and no more late night cupcakes at 2.
    I'm also going to start telling the world and it's people about themselves.
    Time for me to dust off these personals that I have on my book shelf.

    Time to tell those rich bastards in Starbucks that my green money is as valuable as theirs.
    So tired of them acting like I'm not even there--Don't mention them starin'.
    Time to tell the world that my hair is "good hair" not a curse---so tired of those dam* haters.
    Time to tell beautiful black men that don't dig my skin color to get a grip.
    You don't like it? Remember I'm THE STUFF you're made of...Big hips, thick thighs, and "black girl lips."
    Time to tell those nosy chumps at the grocery store to stop counting the items in my cart.
    I went to college and graduated, I didn't learn much, but I know I can at least count to twenty (or less)..Don't get me started.

    Time to tell my co workers about their terrible work ethics and negative statements.
    Wish I had time to tell the media and Prezzz Bush, I'm sick of the word TERRORism.
    Did someone forget to mention to him and that conning media that America terriorizes it's own..........On a daily.
    Hung blacks from trees, kept my yellow brothas and sistas in concentration camps, dropped drugs in the inner city, worked on Aids, and stole land that we still claim today.
    What more can I say.
    I figure I should get all the frustrations out at the beginning of the year,
    so by March I'll be refreshed and ready to go with out the excess emotions and fears.

    I've been keeping tabs and people are acting up these days.
    Quick to tell you what's wrong with you, but never ever checking their ways.
    I'm secure in saying I'm nuts :hammer: and a tad bit off the wall :rolling: .
    He** you might catch me at the right time revealing all about all.

    This is the wrong year to ask a question of me.
    I'll attempt to check my attitude at the door,
    But then again I'm not Rueben and This ain't my apology for 2004.
    It's my mission.

    Royal T.

    I think it's time to be real with everyone...It might make everyone stronger. I think I'm strong because my family made sure we all kept it real with one another.

    My main man K....Happy New Year baby!!!!!! Thanks for the love...

    Triny Trin Trin...Happy New Year to you too. I came in this new year ready to be nice and loving, but I think it's time to let people know and I don't think anyone should take it personal, but take it as a symbol of growth.
