    To All the fellas…

    Never say what you never mean
    Because you can kill a woman’s dream
    After sex, you can put her in such high hopes..
    Only to drop her again like giving her a lifeboat
    And always be true, never be scared
    Don’t cause drama,. Let us come prepared
    Bring out all your issues, please don’t throw them in a closet
    We WILL find out on day…what woman doesn’t?
    Do you have a clue to how much power you have?
    We offer our souls to you, you pull it and grab
    No mention about how we’re doing or how we feel…
    This may not be you, but I’m gonna keep it real
    Do you have any idea how many tears we shed?
    The feeling of driving past your place brings such dread
    The tissues we waste, the emotions we write on paper…
    All could have been saved if we just saw you as a playa
    And another thing, don’t lie about we’re you’ve been
    From the moment you come home, we know if there’s a sin
    Fellas, we love our strong black men and we’re not running away..
    We just ask you to commit, share your love and stay!
    Lord knows there ain’t nothing like a black man with a head on his shoulders
    A black man can move the world if he wanted, but sticks to small boulders
    All my fellas please try to understand
    Every time we come to you about sumthing, be a man!
    Don’t sit up in our faces, and start making up lies..
    Karma will catch you baby, so don’t even try
    But the moral I’m trying to make, the point I’m trying to prove
    Stop complaining about white men, be loyal and get back in the grove
    If so many black women are going to white men do you think there’s sumthing wrong?
    Sure, black men stopped being true, faithful and strong
    So to all my fellas tonight I’ll a question on your mind?
    When did the men go back to boys…and leave real women behind?

    well now i can't speak for all men
    but i tell u so u understand
    but i'll let them be da man
    coz i know who i am and what i am to be
    see there is love for the black woman to see
    i make no promises i can't keep
    i don't say crap to make her weak
    i be not of lie yet the truth
    it's my honesty that carry me through
    so it's not me who blame another man
    but i stand up as a black man
    i make my stand each and every day
    and sho loyality so she know i'll stay

    but i can't speak for all men
    just this single black man

    allow me to say their still some real good men left
    not the street low wanna be 's
    or the boy ll men but real soulful caring men
    so happen to be one myself

    very nice ....

    This was very blunt and to the point. If some one doesn't like it, they should do something to change this situation. Good write.

    Were not blaming others as much as you may hear.
    It's propaganda some filler my dear.
    To dis-enchant you and steal our prize.
    Without our Black Women we will not rise.
    There are those who find it a game.
    To ravage your body, and speak with great shame.
    Calling you names when they are denying the truth.
    They need you more than they need the air they breath.

    Never admitting cause that seems to be weak.
    The Black Man to Black Women our soul to keep.
    You carried us back when the times were not good.
    Hundreds of years thru this land we call home.
    You clothed my children. While we ran the street.
    You cared about the house when there was no food to eat.
    You birth both sexes. Now that was hard.
    It's true some deny you due in this world.

    Men are powerful in some respects.
    But true power lie in your hands.
    There is me without you.
    There is no relation unless it is due.
    were waiting to step up to your demands.
    Tell him your fears.
    He wants to protect.
    Tell him of the one's you respect.

    I can't have a relation unless you allow.
    The power is twisted in society for now.
    It's turning as women see and get feed up with the crap.
    That man any man puts down.

    When ever I blame it's not on the whole race.
    Some stand between my hope and your grace.
    They know if they hurt me.
    They hurt you too.

    It causes divide in the things we can do.
    My persistence if you have my back.
    Will over come anything that slung my way.
    I'm a fighter.
    There are many like me.
    Some are confused of the enemy you see.
    Imploding on their own is in.
    Killing the closet neighbor and friend.
    Stabbing each other pretending to be friends.
    Will never bring a solid good end.
    So until that happens I need your help.
    You have the power of race you kept.

    Black men moving back long time ago.
    You have the power to move them today.

    Demand what you need.
    If he wants to hang.
    A real man will tell you.
    He will play no game.

    A man can see things as they
    come into existence.
    We see things as a whole
    and in all parts at the same time.

    How do you think they are able
    to spit that game.. and fool you.
    You saw all your needs.
    Picked up real quick.
    You didn't know so he thinks he is slick.

    This a little known fact about man.
    When your feeling confused he can't
    relate to this.
    He has figured and it out and can't see.
    There are depths to a women that men
    don't have.
    We need to unfold the tree.

    Tell him to give you a moment.
    Come back after sorting it out.
    When he walks in the door
    don't hit him with the worse.

    Let him get in the house.

    Tell him there are some things to discuss
    and ask him what does he think.

    It's his kob to step up, he can figure it out,
    with your help and support.

    Believe in him.. don't be a fool.
    Let him know the cost.
    That if he can't step
    and take charge you are
    going to take a new course.

    So many women go for the man at the top.
    But we have seen them all fall and drop.
    Below the level they had. If you pour some
    concrete you expect it to stay.

    If he doesn't sound like he meets the measure.
    He is the one you may need.
    Help him unfold the treasure.
    One brick man is worth more than none.
    Give him a chance his is ready to learn.
    Nature has in every man.
    The ability to rise and show his hand.

    THERE IS NOTHING A MAN CAN'T ACHIEVE IF HE BELIEVES AND IS NEEDED.

    RISE TOGETHER.

    SwT, GIRL! I give you much props for being so open and honest but showing love at the same time! But you know what, the men who really need to read this, won't. And that's a shame!

    hey...swtt...this is my opinion

    you must weed out da cats
    that jus want da kittycat
    and the ones that will have ya back
    some brothers say whateva
    to get her
    or it might have been you
    swayed by cats act'n cool
    when your young
    sex is a voodoo hex
    a spell that's more vicious than a ty rex
    hormones tell you
    it time to bone
    when i was young i was stupid
    and c*ckstrong
    think'n that coochies i owned
    till i got played dead wrong
    thank God that mentality
    didn't last long....

    take ya time
    let the cat know ya mind
    and if he doesn't wanna take da time
    then leave him behind
    cause that's all he want's from you(your behind)
    so he can run back and tell his crew
    how he waxed and taxed you
    sorry to be so graphic
    but to da black male youth
    love is like magic
    something out of reach
    so they concentrate on da undacover breach
    don't take this as me trying to teach
    i'm just letting you know
    my thought process when i was a young negro
    before i had time to grow
    and some sistas made me eat crow
    cause if i kept on like i was
    at the age of 31 my heart would be old
    and cold...

    hope dat helped a lil :)
    peace
    khasm

    Khas..... My response to you....


    I know about all of that
    Ain't nobody gonna catch this cat
    She's been caught already and declawed
    From a cat catcher that has a serious flaw

    Negros will say anything
    Get me everything but a ring
    I know the game already, there's nothing I haven't seen
    I'm 17 dreaming a grown woman's dream

    Like We as women can't win for losing
    We can gain cuz we're always choosing...
    The wrong damm ideals
    Looking for backwards sex appeal

    I'm not scorning from myself being taught
    Tell me things so that I don't get caught......

    ...up....

    I'll write back later....I'm pressed for time
