    indeed...

    ...the streets teach many lessons...giving out degrees in survival. but, hopefully, it also teaches patience...and understanding...and tolerance...and the knowledge to walk away from the frey...coz another day...may just mean another way of seeing yesterday. anyway, THANKS for this STREET KNOWLEDGE, So'ja. as always, you're well informed.

    I think thats probably what tears my heart the most about losing brethren to the streets are all the questions left behind
    Its a sad truth
    and the cold hard reality that the streets force you to face
    like it was stated above me...
    the "so'ja-way" = real & raw

    Props poet :)

    thank you poets

    $$RICH$$ - thanks for your comments i KNOW you KNOW what it is

    thank you aNOTsoSIMPLEpoet all i know is fire

    Clyde Coger - the clergy part of the piece was inspired by the church abuse
    of children of the years, but it's hard to get all that in my rhyme scheme lol
    thanks for the comment

    baller - you already know what it is i'm not giving you any knowledge lol
    but yes there's talent here in the streets everybody knows everyone denies it

    coco - call me what you want just don't call me too late lol
    thank you for the kind comment

    trinti424 - you are so RIGHT so much goes on the you never hear about
    it becomes street legend you only can imagine the real pain out there
    and the direction these kids need to live whole as a complete human
    not this processed clone like mentally we have today

    watz - yes it can get ugly i should know been there done that, thank god i'm not anywhere else but here for all i seen and been thru in the streets thru the years
