    Remix
    (A child’s song to their deadbeat parents/guardians)

    Moms/Pops whether I knew you or not, I made it by myself but at what cost to my heart,
    the streets taught me to crip but I took those grooving lines put it to my own searing rhyme then rewrote history and time,
    See this is the remix,
    I’m on dat new ish,
    A childs song to deadbeats,
    a song that can be used to revive heartbeatz,
    My mind meditates and just let’s my soul speak,
    Since you want to forget and still stay hip let me remind you see
    Remember 4 month of 1989, 3ard child of three, 2 ears, 2 eyes, 2 feet, mouth, nose,
    2 out of womb only one made it
    2 parents only one apparent,
    New juke to your two stepping ,
    If I was an adult then I would have told you to get real or get out, stop messin because kids need 2 parents in their lives to help them.
    The babies eyes and cries screaming,
    think about the future this isn’t the time to get even.
    “Please don’t go” is this generation of kids anthem, to of all people their parents.

    How do you handle the questions,
    Where’s mommy? Where’s daddy?
    Where’s the pamphlet that explains how to explain their parent “faded to convict orange” and it’s going to take more than their 50 cent to get them back! See this is the Remix a childs song to their deadbeat parents hollerin at Em to step up and be about dey biznaz!

    Oh it was long ago they got over introducing their guardians,
    Their playmates would say here’s my mom, here’s my dad,
    They respond here’s my grandma and my granddad…. and aunt we all live together,
    my other aunt, buddy, and cousin live around the corner,
    Well where’s you mom and dad the playmate eggs on.
    “These are my parents and I’m their Pride N Joy!

    This is an Outro to all kids that ever called the radio station requested “Something you forgot” “Dear Mama” or “Can I live” and dedicated it to their parents.

    This is thanks for all the coaches that believed in us and told us that we were Jordan and Heizman prospects at heart.
    For all the teachers that taught us that we were ROCKSTARS and everytime we pushed past status quo’s succeeded against all odds we were partaying like em.
    This Remix is for the kids,
    who for all these years
    just wanted to SLAP………!!!!
    For all the kids asking GOD can I stand under your umbrella ella ella eh
    Hey!!!
    Cuz in this life when it rains it pours and my tears have been pourin in scores like a rose is still a rose that baby girl years later is still your daughter but now in full bloom sayin
    “When I see you. . you probably will be the same person,
    But I won’t be R.kelly/Ushers’ Same Girl see I’ve grown like Missy E, Lil K, and Keshia Cole I’ve let all that hatred and resentment of you go!
    Rii Now I’ve got “Big Thangs Poppin” I’m one of Sean Kingston’s Beautiful Girls with Russle Crowe’s “Beautiful Mind”
    Unlike Kanye you Can tell me sumthin like why you didn’t see fit for you to help your struggling family,
    why didn’t you add yourself to the problem side of the equation when you subtracted you responsibility!
    I’m screamin a Smilez and Southstar “Tell me”!
    I’m older, young lady, you never held me in your chest, didn’t give us a chance, now I choose “Pay me now!!!!”

    Your sonz head bobbin in tune with every verse Pac spins taking it in,
    now they can finally look you in the eye and say “I ain’t mad atcha”,
    Although you didn’t “teachme” how to be a man a Soulja Boy was my mentality continually krankin dat knowledge now I’m in college,
    I’ve got my degree and on Wall Street I will reek havoc!
    You don’t have to call I’ve stopped chasin dat elusive waterfall.
    Sorry, but I do put the blame on you,
    You were there when Boyz 2 Men was sayin I’ll make love to you,
    but where were you when the rent was due!
    Doors always open for ya giving ya “Another Last Chance” to “Walk it out Back into Heaven” and make your life “complete”
    No more Letoya “Torn” Like John Legend all we ever wanted to hear and know is that you were “Coming Home”. Will you come back to us ? Will you run back to us? “Heaven Only knows”.

    This is the Remix for all the kids having to experience an absence,
    it was never your fault your people just got “Caught Up” and even though it seems like they were Running Away from Your Love “Through the Pain” this “Anthem” reminds you that “Ya Gotta Keep Your head Up”!
    You have the determination to achieve,
    make LEGAL bread invest dat cheese.

    A Dead-beats………., A Dead-beats, A Dead-Beats,
    This is the Remix this generation is on dat BREAKING THE CYCLE ish!!
    This is a Child’s Song to their Deadbeat Parents!!!!

    Truly beautiful. I loved the perspective and it's very honest, which is...poetry.

    A creative well posed piece, tackling a subject that weighs heavy on the heart. If the cycle can indeed be reversed, and most of our children could be brought up with both parents in the home, actively participating in their children's lives, oh what a world it would be. Intense write.

    there are alot of reasons why things are the way they are

    and i'm feeling your perspective of that

    hopefully the truth will be shown to you

    not only why it is but how it got that way

    peace poet
