Say it Ain't So...

Ever since I started writing,
I have been very generous with my books,
I handed out so many that on some I simply broke even,
But that was all good,
People were reading my work,
With Mrs. Black,
I made a decision to sell some books,
I am absolutely giving books to,
Those who are shouting out my work, and there are so many to whom I am grateful,
Those I choose to gift,
But come on people,
This is a business, my business,
And it is how I am able to do the next book,
By selling this one,
I am so not getting brand new,
It ain't even about that,
And you know it...
It is just simply that I pay for the books to be printed,
Shipped to my door...
So cut me a break...
And don't tell my neighbor, talk to me!


Young Brother, Please

Something that concerns me, immensely,
Is the number of young brothers who absolutely do not get,
That there is no free ride,
To eat a man must work,
And we won't even start with when a man has children,
There seems to be a generational curse that is consuming them,
And allowing them to blame their failures on the system or their women,
Well listen up,
If you quit several jobs or get fired,
That is the not the fault of anyone but you,
If you lay down with six women without benefit of protection,
And they all have babies by you and all your money is going to child support,
That is on you and your penis,
No one else,
If you have a dream of superstardom in some arena,
God Bless You,
We should all dream, and work to pursue it.
But while dreaming, take your butt to a job,
Any job and work as though your life depends on it, because it does,
And if you have a woman who has expectations of you,
Count yourself blessed,
Because after God,
Your woman is usually the woman who will see you through,
And stand in the gap when nothing else is working...
Hey don't listen to me,
But at the same time when you wake up and half your life is over,
And you are still going from pillar to post,
Without a pot or a window,
Maybe just maybe,
You will remember the butting in older woman,
Who really had your best interests at heart....
And when you think of the world as being against you,
Think of all the hungry people,
And the women like my mother who raised,
Children all by herself before child support was a mandate,
and raised good productive people...
There is no free lunch and to eat we must work,
And if you take issue with what I have said,
I say this, Young Brother...Please!

Be Blessed!
