    I raised you right!
    Taught you to talk it out
    and not to fight.
    I taught you to see the
    power in knowledge
    sacrificed so you could
    go to college.

    You finished with a 4.0
    And all I could do is shout
    and Say "Boy you Go"!
    But the joy is fading and
    my heart is ripping
    I know this scenario has
    all of us trippin

    One baby, two babies
    Two momma's
    Baby mama drama
    One you chose
    The other was chosen for
    you. Your heart so pure
    and trusting you don't
    know what to do.

    I saw it coming, like a train
    wreck, God have mercy, I
    could have wrung that heifer's
    neck. But, I tried to keep my
    mouth shut, I had said more
    than enough. I knew this
    decision had to be tough.

    Thought that you were in love
    and it was really lust...Momma's
    know these things on this you
    can trust...Now the future I saw
    for you...I doubt very seriously
    if it is coming true...But, oh how
    I love you and want to advise
    you of what is right...
    But all I can do is sit by and watch
    this is not my fight.
    You're a grown *** man with a grown
    man's life. Now you have the typical
    black man's strife

    What makes this drama so hard to take
    is the youngest one is on life support
    born four months early, by the Fly by
    night girlie. She has no interest in raising
    a less than perfect child. And all the time
    you were loving her, she was steady
    acting wild. Unworthy of your love , I guess
    that's what all Mother's think...But, this is
    pure bullsh*t and it's starting to really stink.

    My Grandson is treated like an orphan you see,
    no one to go see him on a daily but my son and
    me...For the Love of God why is this happening
    to my son, I know that he is not the only one.
    His first child has leukemia, they say she is doing
    well. But , what did he do to deserve all this hell?

    I wait for God's answer, I beg and I cry....
    I grow weary , and angry and tired ....
    All of the wonderful things I desired ...
    For MY SON...HAVE COME UNDONE!
    "JUST WAIT A WHILE..."
    AND WE ALL SAY THE SAME THING
    "NOT MY CHILD!"

    * please Pray for baby Elijah and Raven....thank you!

    Sometimes we just have no control over the events in our loved ones lives. All of you are in my prayers.

    hey do the person in question read this
    this is beautiful
    i always been careful with sex
    because you can make baby
    sometimes you get caught in the act because it feels so good
    but you have to be in control

    but with you in his corner he'll be fine
    it's a going experience and setting priorties

    nice strong piece poet

    No time like the present

    Father we pray that you will intercede on behalf of both of these children. You know the situation and only you can heal. We offer them up to you in prayer as well as the parents that you will work a miracle on their behalf. The young child on life support we pray that you change the condition for you are the giver of life....The child with lukemia we pray that just as you healed lepers and raised the dead, that you will touch this child....Look on that father, look on both mothers, give them direction and strength, and look on this grandmother whose heart is filled with pain, we pray that you will comfort her even now in Jesus name...Amen!

    To those who are not Christians and who may be offended I make no apologies for my belief, but I saw a need and addressed it....

    Bishop has spoken.

    Amen to Bishops prayer and may God carry you when you cannot stand just trust in him and he will take your hand. for we do know that "all things work together for Good to them that love the lord".
