    (ok everyone I'm really new to this, this is jus something I came up with on the spot)

    Many look me in my eyes
    On a daily basis
    Yet despite the constant view
    In my mind, I know they don't know me
    See cause when they look
    All they see is the smile.
    But if they really knew me,
    they would know the smile tells a lie
    a lie that like so many sistaz I fight to hold back.
    The story of each man that has come into my life
    Raping my soul
    Corrupting my spirit
    Filling my once pure body with thousands of toxins.
    See when people look at me.
    They don't even realize , it's the "HOOD" mentality
    that forces me to smile.
    So if they never recognized the "HOOD" in me
    there is no way that they could know me.

    Welcome to Destee poet!! Like gempis, I get what you're saying here. The Hood in you, is that tough exterior that hides the experiences that live inside of you. I really liked the way you posed this piece, and I am looking for more!!!

    for someone to be new at this, you show'll do seem like you been at it for a while, the "HOOD" mentality is something all or should i say a good majority of us black sistah's hold, puttin' it down like it is......i like that, welcome and continue doing what you're doing, because there's only one you, and the first part of "you," is knowing "y"............one love
