    It ain't nothin' to cry for
    It ain't nothin' to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for

    It's ain't nothin to cry for
    When I look in your eyes I only see more
    Of Me in the past when I was a whore
    I didn't want this life for you I wanted you to soar
    Wanted you to be the next Bill Clinton, Lincoln, or Al Gore
    Didn't want to see you riding the same streetz I rode before

    But It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for

    You was my future
    Or at least I thought you were until I saw your virtue
    I hope I didn't put too much pressure
    On you but I only wanted you to be a positive figure
    To these young ones out here.....that deeply need you to nurture
    Them into everything I wanted you to be.......MATURE

    But it's ain't nothin' to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain' t nothin to cry for

    You could have been anything in this dangerous war
    A doctor
    mayor
    football player
    or lawyer
    Anything but what you are now......a thug warrior
    Instead of the revolutionary brother
    I wanted you to be you took a detour
    Into a world of black and grays
    Defying everything of which I say
    In the streetz or in my house is where you lay
    You are everything I wished you not to be........my faith
    Which is destroyed....it's gone way

    But it ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for

    I remembered when I saw you steal your first piece of candy
    I only looked at you laughed like everything was dandy
    But it wasn't...........because you turned into me and your daddy
    If only I wasn't on those streetz this wouldn't have happened to you nor me
    I blame myself..........for turning you into a "G"
    I remember when I first got the call when you were in 6th grade saying you were skipping school to be with a lady
    I was........ like I said a street hussler and didn't think about family
    I only cursed the out your teacher........about my baby
    But little did I know you had long strade from being mama's baby
    And what you really needed was a *** wiping from a real black lady
    Lord Save Me!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cause......It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for

    Cursing me
    Ignoring me
    Boring me
    That is was what you did
    Not you're a liar
    cheater
    and weeper
    The weeper in my soul.......that is now hid
    I know you didn't have anyone around
    But that's no reason to bow down
    To the thugs and murderers that turned you around
    I want to cry but the drops don't seem to come around.......

    Cause it ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for

    As I see you lying here on this ground
    I think of how "we" could have turned things around
    But we were too naive to communicate and bow down
    From the streetz that were callin' us when we were not found
    Two shots to the head.....and no one heard a sound
    Yet because you're one this ground
    You've gone to a better place
    And left this gun *** place

    So, It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for
    It ain't nothin to cry for

    Then why do I cry......tears of silence?
    Tears of joy
    And Tears of pain

    whoa lil sister...

    This was some strong and sobering medicine...
    you and that "gift" of yours...
    I think it's time to start the Foxy Fan Club... :wink:

    but on a serious note..."Parents" should read this
    and understand the upbring must start young...
    or that child will become what they see...we must
    always represent well in front of our youth...

    "I truly loved the message and beautiful flow in this piece"


    Bravo my lil Sister!:grouphug:

    Thanks......

    To be quite honest, I didn't think a lot of people would be interested in this piece because of the title......but for all of you that did read/ reply.......it's a blessing that this poem even caught your eye.......thanks and much luv to all of you......
