    the difference between us is not our ability to communicate or educate with our kids

    it’s not our pessimistic ways verses our optimistic views on the world

    the guiltiness that rest on our sleepless conscious after POP past away

    or our ambitions that are pugnacious enough to fuel our drive an those around us

    is it our pretentious personality
    no wait that’s not it -lets keep faking it
    apparently that’s the only way we can make it- work

    the difference between us is not the company we keep or the achievements we seek

    the souls we save or the promises we’ve made

    the high we feel or the joy we steal

    the shade of your skin or the skin that’s within

    but the lies that we must tell, keeps us thirsting for that repenting well


    there is no difference between us
    we grew up in the same home
    all of us being loved with the same tone
    but the distance between us is unquestionably lonely as we’ve grown

    we are still the same
    we have the same name

    For what matters most, the core of us, we are the same. I appreciate the poetic way you cut to the chase. Welcome to Destee.com. Looking forward to reading more from you.

    maybe

    then can read this

    and you guys get it back to where it was

    don't wait until the last moment

    not talking to you per se

    but to any family that is broken apart for various reasons

    y'all need to get back together and build

    peace
