We will be working on it every single day until it's exactly what you want!

A Flower Like Me

edited September 2011 in Waiting To Exhale
A wild flower of life
is nodding to its fall.
Waving leafy white flags
to the blue
for self - destruction
is blossoming
in a tainted
field of view
where self pruning occurs.
For the object
of its affection
didn't return
good vibrations.
Causing an allergic reaction
to a stripped
common daisy
whose plucked pages
are reduced to ashes.
The coping mechanism
of choice for
a self-loathing sprout
that isn't growing out
but slowly withering
from within

    As for the black man...he can be one of the hardest, most heart-wrenching person to love and cherish...but the love that he gives makes it all worthwhile...his skin, his back, his character, and his soul is what makes me love him for all eternity...be him right or be him wrong, I am his rib, and his wisdom...to forsake him is to be my death. I love him, because he is me.

    Mannnnn listen, he's feeling like a bum ass nigga, and wants to release those feelings of aintshitness. He spent his whole tax return on some other broad's kid (s), and now he feel like shit for not doing right by his own flesh and blood.

    He wants you to bring babygirl to Subway so he can take a few pics and post them shits on Facebook with the caption 'Had lunch with my #1lady. #Daddydaughterday'

    Psssh, you already know what it is. I'd take a picture of the back of my baby's head and be like 'We looking past you.'
