    Parents are the most influential people on the planet
    The knowledge they give to us we are meant to keep it
    Some try to parent before they’re ready and fake it
    perpetrate it
    and neglect it
    “It” the child who does anything and everything the mother does........reflects it
    Anxiety, depression, neglection .....all effects it
    It feels what the parents feel ............and if feelings are bad.....it recks it
    Parents are put here to nurture and uplift the child bit by bit
    And realize that the messages that they make conflicts it
    A father that beats mama
    Reflects on that child who later beats his woman
    It’s up to the parents to realized that the child and them have too much in common
    And if the message by any means vibrate into the wrong directions....faith is determined
    Messages of hate and anger
    Later puts that child in danger
    And this word I can no longer let linger

    A child needs both mother and father
    To go farther
    In the world for brighter
    If a sister
    Had no father
    Then how can she choose a brother
    That will make her life greater
    If she had no father figure
    At home to look up to rather
    No one at home to value her as a daughter
    How can she find someone with the qualities for HER son or daughter?
    Better yet, will she even go look for a man?
    If she looks at her own life that is missing a VERY important human
    Who gave her mother the semen
    To make her a women
    If a brother had no father then he will not truly know what it is to be a man
    Not know where to began
    A mother can only teach that son so much
    Until the lessons just loose touch
    He can only look up to those guys on the streetz not worth too much
    And as always if they didn’t have a father in the first place
    Then just like the lost father he will leave his family with the same grace
    Grace and much less

    As parents you must also realize that we see everything
    We see the men and women that you bring
    In and out of our lives on a daily basis without a ring
    You tell the child that it’s just a fling
    But parents it’s the wrong thing
    We lose respect
    And it may not happen direct
    But I can prove this as a fact
    The rude behaviors you show each other also takes respect back
    Back to a direct minimum reflect
    Fights and outburst causes regrets
    And neglects
    our lung like cigarettes
    Oh, and as for that saying “ Do as I say, not as I do.”
    That is not what we do
    We do as you do, not as you say
    I don’t know it’s just that way
    okay!

    Welfare is just a way to hold us down
    But down look at it this way with a frown
    If you are on welfare look at all the time with your children you have around
    If you are on welfare you have triple time of others to spend with their children school bound
    Your children should be the smartest people around
    You may enjoy the joys that working parents don’t have now
    Teach your children and let them know you are always around

    We as a people look down on each other every day
    We often talk as kids and adults about the dark skinned people in the most wasteful way
    If you act too white then there is even more to say
    Looking down at each other from day to day
    Because the person next to you has hair of wool and a face black as night/ day
    No clean clothes or home to stay
    We don’t want to talk to the people that have high jobs and a mansion to stay
    For we portray them as sold out or gay
    How can we as a people act racist toward our own people today
    That why we all tend to stray
    We are so threaten about what others may say
    That we spend more money on our nails and hair than where our head stays
    Can’t stick together.....for we stray
    That the word is out.....I can’t take it this way

    Women, we are a strong part of the world
    And that goes for both woman and girl
    You don’t have to look for a man to give you self esteem
    For, you already have it if you know what I mean
    I mean it no secret that men where the pants in the family ....well women wear the hat with the seam
    We are queens
    And we all need our kings
    But don’t rely on them for nothing
    For we know they come just as fast as they go cutting
    We must rely on ourselves above everything
    And realize that we are human
    And it’s also in our nature to succeed never drowning
    None- frowning
    Women, we are what they world revolves around we can’t go lodging
    Women, keep your head up..........none- frowning

    Ladies please don’t degrade yourself by dating you girl’s man
    For, it will break your friendship with that woman
    Some men like to cause drama like that ......don’t pump the ego of this human
    Let him enter your body with his semen
    Cause the truth is he doesn’t want either of you
    To be true
    with you
    he just wants to play with your mind
    And act kind
    but he is nothing of tat sort and he is lyin’

    Oh, and ladies please don’t brag to yo suppose to be best friends
    about what you do in yo bed with your men
    About the sex about now and then
    Cause I’m gonna tell it like it is they will get yo man
    Don’t think cause I’m young I don’t know.......cause sistah.......it’s only human!
    You don’t have to be a scientist to know that a woman will take you for everything just like a man
    Duh, even I know that and I haven‘t dated but one man

    My man, take care of your responsibilities
    Don’t run off and leave yo family
    It’s just a matter of time before your conscious gets to you play boy bunny
    Oh, you think it’s funny
    To let your child mommy
    Well, it would be funny if you least took care of the child of the family
    Moral life
    Good life
    And stayed with that wife
    Taught all your knowledge to that kid
    Which by you sexin’ did
    Had a job with a fat pocket and life was so splendid
    You got a kid so please keep your qualities correct
    So that child doesn't go down direct
    Because it's your actions that would have that effect

    Brothers you are our kings
    And even though you may do extreme things
    We still NEED you for lots of things
    And some of those EXTREME things
    You are our protectors
    Our constructed worker
    And our rock builder
    And because of this we would never lose hope
    Brothers we need you
    We need you
    We need you for everything

    We need all our misters
    From our ministers
    To the lawyers
    We need you brothers
    And I'm a sister
    With a lot of knowledge and I even know we need you mister
    ALL of you

    God is real and I know that one day there wil be no more words to give
    But until then I strife
    with the knowledge to spread and I was gave
    We went from slave
    To the crack head brave
    God had better purposes for us
    And I won't let these word defeat us
    Or annihilate us
    Nor abbreviate us
    But encourage us
    To greater us

    WORD UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
