    Listen
    Learn
    Never ignore lessons on
    LIFE’S TRUTHS

    Don’t get so lost in word play
    That you take them as an
    AFFRONT
    To your manhood
    And need to prove your
    WORTH.

    Dismiss that ****
    And move on

    Life is too short
    To constantly prove yourself
    Within your personal space

    ON THE OTHER HAND

    If you find the one
    ..the right one
    who can make you smile
    when you hurt all over inside
    …who will stand by you
    through all the mud throwing
    blood shedding
    and venting
    you’re going to go through…

    STAND BY YOUR WOMAN.

    Don’t let what the fellaz say
    Make you walk away
    From opportunity

    If you hear the
    Knock…knock…knock
    Of love
    On your heart
    Step forward

    Your boys aren’t going to make you happy.
    …rub your back when times are rough
    …hold your hand til you get enough
    or, stand by you when the **** gets tough

    Listen to your heart

    Be your own man

    No one respects anything less

    LIFE’S TRUTHS.

    Perhaps relationships would be near perfect if the younger brothas & sistahs
    would listen & learn from the older brothas & sistahs who have been there and done that. But I guess that would make living life too easy, huh? Enjoyed reading you as always.

    many

    now that i think of it,
    back in the day
    all the right people
    used to tell me
    the "way"

    but like many of
    my brethen i had to
    learn the hard "way"

    nice work

    Baller..

    Here lies the catch....
    can you take the words of wisdom
    and apply them to your life....
    for some, experience is the best teacher...nicely written
