    this is not to be used as an excuse
    for i have to rise above the fuse
    recuperate and rejuvenate
    he was there
    in the flesh
    i could look into his eyes
    he could look into mine
    how i wish i would fly into his shiny black coals on his face
    but i could never see what he could see
    i seen him
    i seen a young boy trapped inside a man's body
    lack of understanding
    no sense of responsibility
    but not to worry
    the baby daddy's momma is always there to take up the slack
    that's how it is among us blacks
    wish all the love for daddy's momma from 70 times 70 plus 3 more
    she could never fill the empty space
    she always made excuses for her dear son
    but momma can't protect and make excuses forever
    when the bullet exploded the flesh momma wasn't there
    she couldn't just hold him and bandage up dear son
    no longer could she make excuses for her dear son
    no longer could he make promises to his daughter
    so now this question arises
    how can a daughter grieve over a father she never had
    the answer is, she can't
    wasted emotion
    so now babygirl is with babydaddy's momma
    on a permanent basis
    she promises not to give momma any grief
    she has seen too much and heard too much
    to be so young
    sometimes she goes to fantisize over "what if's"
    what if he was always there
    what if he always cared
    what if he didn't just worship his lil princess from a distance
    what if
    meaningless
