    Because of you
    You have changed my life
    A sterotypical MC
    All I cared about was me
    My priorities used to be sex, drugs, and me.
    That ****** me up for so long
    makin me think I was where i belonged
    Once i seen you everything changed
    I didnt know what to do I felt deranged
    Like a Psychopath my feelings collided
    wondering if i could survive it.
    How will i do what is right?
    This is FLEE OR FIGHT.
    I pray to the lord
    That I will not be...be like the man I was supposed to be
    my father
    so ****** up i could never understand
    Can I be a real man?
    Or am I Doomed to be a regularitory
    of the penitentiary
    I often second guess everything that I have done
    But then I realize I have one
    A son that I can teach,..........and will reach
    He will be more than me, he will preach
    Preach my rights and my wrongs to make them understand
    That his father had one dream a dream to be
    A Man..A Man just like how i am.

    a man you will be become
    never let that title ever go numb
    teach your son right so he wont be dumb
    leaving him for the streets to raise him
    never let your light grow dim
    if you fall remember to get back up
    dont leave your spirit in a rut
    just do the strut
    that a Real Man walk
    its good for you to do the talk
    But can you walk the walk
    teach him to love women as being equal
    dont let em grow up like R.kelley with many sequels
    lord knows we have too many men around exploiting us
    thats why im going to continue to make a fuss
    dont Struggle to Be
    Just Continue to be
    The man you need to be.....

    nice flo poet flo on.
    :love:

    Wow. powerful flow. :spinstar: :spinstar: :spinstar: :spinstar: :spinstar:

    Welcome to Destee UndRsTaNDThS

    Sleep walking awake one day. What made you wake was your son they will say.

    It is the best thing that has happened to you.

    No time to second guess the trust. First thoughts are right 98% of the time. Second guessing gets a 29%.

    Less than fifty, trust your inner mind.
    How God speaks to us, trust him and you will begin to see his power.

    Things will change all around you, your walk will have more pep. Your new focus , your sons or daughthers cost at first, but places something more valuable in the purse. Of life, your life, someone to love you back, someone you can help to learn.

    Liability = any thing that needs feeding.
    asset = any thing that feed you.

    So someone fed you, you must feed another for we all are a burden to one another.


    Have fun doing all you do with chidren, they grow up and go away so fast.

    How you choose to to accept Fatherhood
    and be responsible for your seed...

    That his father had one dream a dream to be A Man.

    separates the Boy from the Man.

    I'm so diggin this poem....wonderfully written.
