    Here is another untitled one. Not sure what to call it. So just named another one of my names. :p Hope you guys enjoy...

    I often wonder my status quo...
    Bound by the bars on walls...
    With uniforms included in a weekly bath...
    Am i sure i want to follow that path...

    What chances am I willing take...
    What risks am I willing to make?...
    I'm not in the game...
    So i say...
    So for my promotions...
    Who will pay?

    Maybe its safe to sit on the sidelines and watch....
    But how can I sit and watch my fam go down...
    Knowing that **** is hot!!!!
    But i'm just a chic so my words don't mean a whole lot!!!

    Get that paper...hands itching...
    ****** snitching...
    Preachers preaching
    Crack Heads reaching...
    and in the end...Everyones looking for a savior...
    I said my prayers....
    And they trying to be ballers and players...
    Their work is a Job...
    With possible imprisonment...
    Did you forget about your babies tears....

    We falling...
    Calling for something that we haven't seen yet...
    Living off of memories and regrets....
    Did we forget the right way...
    And who even said that the right way is the right way...
    So i pray...
    for me and my fam...
    For those who do and don't understand.
    I pray for the dignified...
    The denied...
    Magnified and the Glorified...
    All in my prayers

    no we can't see GOD i like to say the higher power but it's all energy use it in a positive way you can't see it but it's there you can't see air either but you breathing feel me, so make yourself who you are re-invent yourself if you have to not everyone in born into royalty or money so you have to make you life fun, hey my life ain't **** but I ENJOY it, i don't worry about what i don't have i work with what i do, so take it easy on yourself it's a game out here don't get caught in it. stand on your own two show some confidence you know i never asked GOD for any material things, i asked for
    guidance, tolerance, and peace of mind and you know what things worked out maybe not the way i wanted but God did give me guidance tolerance and peace of mind try that but you need to be very sincere and most of all most of all you have to believe deep down in your heart and i guarantee you will be alright man i talk too much, but i'm really quiet though. peace my up and coming sista


    cause it's all love
    as always

    Cindy: Thank you my dear. You are right about one thing...prayers are always answered in some way, shape or form...And they were... ;)

    Soja: Man...you know i got mad love for you!!! Cause you show me mad love all the time.... :p Thanks for the guidance too and i feel the same way... Pray for the better things in life..patience, tolerance, self-determination all that good stuff...Besides it'll get you alot further than anything materialistic.

    I loved this. It brought me so much peace. I interpeted you placing all cares and concerns you have about your family in GOD's hands and now your heart is at peace due to your faith in him. Isn't it wonderful to have a peaceful heart?

    Mad Sistahly Love:heart:
