    yea HELL YEA

    i felt the strength in this and don't you for one minute think that you're not strong sometimes it's hard to go by yourself over a long period of time but when you think you're at your weakest you're actually at your strongest, the mind plays tricks sometime but to have the man and woman there helps make that spiritual bond stronger and you can't get that
    no place else on

    EARTH.

    coco...my gurl.

    "...Won't you(black man) try to understand,
    why I am the way that I am..."

    i understand your trials
    your wiles
    your {public} tough skin
    that gets you through this
    WICKEDNESS
    we live in
    i understand
    the many struggles
    you go through everyday
    as the winds that caress your skin
    flows you along your way
    this way
    MY WAY
    yes,
    i understand
    periodic weariness
    camouflauged discouragement
    gentle weakness most can't sense
    that keeps you from reaching
    that level of content{ment}
    due to the deepness
    of your circumstance
    i understand.

    LOOKING OUT FOR YOU, babygurl.

    i'm there.
