...to every store...to every hotel door...to every street corner where the brutha was standing when he got that boner...that he might begin to understand...EVERY BOY DON'T NECESSARILY BECOME A MAN.
Well I see we got
One man up in here. Yo..this is nice... Funny thing is I said the same thing about my real father a few years ago. Man...if they only knew. Yo...i'm diggin this..the style, the detail..the debt...the words i'm just loving all this...
True dat So'Ja...
Because you some "baby mama daddy" doesn't make you a FATHER!!!
I feel ya bro!!!
man this is what is needed. I feel you on this and i commend your scribe. I took a whiole to respond for a comment made in here by one who read it was a little offensive to the "real men" in the room. I took a moment to not allow that concept prevent me from posting to one of the true poets in the house...
Definitely feeling ya bro' in more ways than one...
GQ - thank for your undying support it does not go unnoticed
Sha - this happens anyway everyday in America and i'm glad you liked the flow
Baller - your name alone holds weight with me dun, and that's for your comments for a "real man"
MO - you know my respect for you is unchanging, for someone to be offended by my work is tough because what i wrote is not fiction its' real
so the "men' that were offended must have been ones who did something like this hey everybody has a situation sometimes parents can't be there for the off-spring this was written for those who blatantly avoid their responsibilties. not for someone who had an unfortunate situation
and MO - if these "men" are offended tell them to be offended by my life in these city streets that almost killed me a couple times because at times i'm offended by the context of my life
and you know me better than most people on this page
and you know i'm about spreading love
but i have to spread the truth too.
and somethings people don't love the truth
peace to my "real soldiers"
BOYZ 2 MEN
SO FEW UNDERSTAND THE TRUTH
MAN U KNOW DES NEED TO HIT EVERY
BILLBOARD ACROSS THE WORLD
SEE MAKING A CHILD DON'T MAKE A MAN
TAKING CARE OF THE CHILD MAKE U A MAN
