    so what’s your excuse now?
    said you didn’t know I existed
    until 4 years ago
    I find it mighty funny
    you weren’t the one who found me
    in all that time...

    and it was mighty fishy how
    Aunt Bea set me up on the 3-way
    call and dropped me in your lap
    like that

    I’m still mad at that ho

    So where you at now, Donald Ray?

    Where’s my brother and sister?
    Where’s the woman you married
    after you dropped seed in my 15 year old
    mama, 22 years ago?

    Where’s the family I never knew?

    See, that’s what I’m talking bout
    I don’t even believe
    you didn’t know…. you were 21
    and birth mama was just for fun
    even she knew that **** wouldn’t go

    don't play me, don't sleep...
    I spent some street time
    ****...I'm grown
    and yeah got me a husband
    and 2 kids of my own

    I guess I’m grateful
    birth mama coulda killed me
    before I was born
    there've been times I
    wished she had

    but that’s all right, Donald Ray,
    you punk *** trick

    I gots me a beautiful new Mom
    and a hard working, fun-loving Dad

    this was a sad yet honest display of emotion....
    any person can plant a seed, but it's the one who waters that seed and puts it out in the sunshine and fresh air, and allows it to grow, that is the real gardner...glad you found the love of a parent in the garden of your life...

    oooh,

    these are strong emotions...I feel your anger, disgust, and your broken heart underneath it all.

    And I feel your love for the family God has blessed you with....after all.

    :heart:

    I feel this

    and I know you've been blessed! You've blessed me with these words because the healing is evident in your bottom line.

    Thank you for sharing,
