Why couldn't my dad be more like John Q...
Willing to give his heart for my heart...
Instead, constantly tugging and breaking my heart

Why did my mom lose her job..
Got so frustrated to walk off,Instead of letting the bastard fire her...
Wonderwoman currently on hiatus

Why was i the first male,
Out the projects to graduate from high school since 88'..
Never thought i was accomplishing nothing that great..
Or was it that every other man that fucked up within that ,
And was just doing something normal.

Why did a childhood friend get hit by a car a die when i was younger..
Was the same street my mom caught me crossing with him the day before..
Keep wondering why was i spared and his life taken.

Why did my sister have my nephew at such a young age..
I remember when she told me, i could not believe it..
she told me last because she thought I'd be mad at her..
Its amazing how mistakes can make such great kids.

I can keep asking all the questions ..and never get the answers.
But those things happened for a reason,
And i cant change them. So i move forward..
I will focus on what i can change,
Put my energy in those things..
And make them happen.

Those things helped shape you into who you are today. Just don't let them define who you will become.

Somebody wading in the deep end of the blog pool! I like, I like.

awwww @ that first paragraph...I feel you.

Completely agree with Iesha...those things helped shape the man you've become, so they were a necessary evil.

This post was really unexpected...keep 'em coming!
