    Fallin short in da hood

    where many bruthas stood
    traped in da woulda , coulda , should

    Coming off as street kings
    mixing glots controling da bling
    only ruling da ratz & fiens

    We so unaccountable
    broken unity very noticeable
    killin like it's acceptable

    Yet to love willingly
    i know it's not intentionally
    harden hearts so self consciously

    Taken away da flava
    how can my people savior
    da hunger, we now a waver

    Da shortage gettin deeper
    nothing to these hood sleeper
    only da eyez of our peeper

    Keeping us under the gun
    from da fathers brothers & son
    tyme we change and bond

    For some black rising fun
    coz we can weight in a ton
    we can be da moon starz & sun

    But this shortage got us on da run
    hidden , labled and crazy stun
    from the maze of a dry pond

    we str8 up short
    too many of us in court
    less now to cover da fort

    like knotz dale
    under society spell
    destroying our dewell

    where in the H is all da males
    wake up our sistas not 4 sale
    got ya back and ya bail

    Kingz and Queenz shortage

    Some get caught up in all the craziness and just join the frey, forgetting that they are kings and queens. It would make our ancestors cry. What an on point message poet.

    so true watz..... too often we get caught up in the maze
    that kill and destroy our goals as people and we forget about
    who what and why that come to how .

    Tyme we make a change within ourseleves before we can change us in whole
    to become what we are and should be from this mental trap KINGZ & QUEENZ
    Thank you my dearest sweetheart for the love and visit .

    Look at cha!!!
    Yes, there's a shortage on both ends
    but the key is to find something special
    within what you've got to work with.
    I know, that's easier said than done.
    As always your pen is flowing so nicely.

    Much luv
