Always Had My Mother

By AH

Dedicated To My Moms

I seen my mother go through withdrawals
I smelled the heroin coming out of her pores

There was days I had nothing
There was nights I had nothing
But my mother

We used to pray 4 better days
Momma always made a way

There was times I didn’t have no food
There was times I didn’t have fresh shoes
But I had my mother

Momma always held strong
She never worried that my father was long gone
There was times I couldn’t get love from my own kind
There was moments that I second guessed my own friends
But I always had my mother

My Family

By GB

Me & my girl, we’re having a baby, so now I have a family to provide for
The mission is to get outta here early, capture success, regain what I lost, and a whole lot more

Those two mean the world to me, an’ I’ll go to the end of the earth for them
One is my future wife, one is my soon to be son, and both the two are more valuable than any diamond, jewel, or gem

Also I refuse to let any harm come to them by any fool, joker, or clown
An’ I will never forget that—there is no way I’m going to let them down
‘Cause they give me strength, and without them I’m nothing
A husband & a father—now that’s something

So when I get home I’m getting on my hustle the legal way
No more streets for me ‘cause when I come home, I’m here to stay
Gotta get a nine to five, nothing but job hunting for me
Dope boy no more, working man is all I can be

I’m going to be in my son’s life, and no more having my girl up worrying & waiting by the phone for me to call an say I’m alright
I’m going to be the one taking him to school in the morning, at work in the day, and in the bed next to her at night

I’m just going to carry myself in a manner so manly
‘Cause there is no room for failure,
And I’m just going to be the man I’m supposed to be
For My Family

Mamma

By GB

 

The woman that raised me since birth,

the same woman that cleaned me after I’ve been playing in dirt.

She read me stories, then tucked me into bed,

and when I done wrong, she’d never hesitated to go across my head.

When I was ill or came down with a cold, she was my doctor,

and when I had a role in the school play, she was my director.

My mamma is great, Ma used to help me with my homework, and even a spelling test.

Then Ma would send me off to school with a smile & kiss,

and she’d say, “Don’t worry I know you’ll do your best.”

My mother’s cooking is amazing; everything is delicious and made with love.

I know there’s a God, ‘cause my mother is a gift from the heavens above.

Ma was there when that girl broke my heart,

 She’s the one that repaired it, and said, “This is just the start.”

I can go on & on about how good my mother is, but this poem will never be done.

So never take your mother for granted, you only get one.

A wise woman said that, “that’s why I can’t imagine life without her…

I just don’t wanna.”

She’s my rock, the leader of my support team,

some call her L, some call her auntie,

but I call her Mamma

Achievement

By CR

People think that accomplishing something

Is nothing to them

But to me

Accomplishing or achieving something

Means a lot to me

Cuz I was the dumb one

Of all the kids my mom had

But when I accomplish something

I feel proud

FREEDOM MIND

By NH

Wehave been running for so long

that we all need to life our head

and take a moment to breathe

because we haven’t been giving ourselves the chance to breathe

what GOD intended for us to believe in

isn’t it the truth that what makes us strive to be something

but instead we have been captivated by all kinds of discrimination

which make us remain to castigated

so let’s stop fooling ourself and feeding our children with all kinds of fabrication

can’t you people realize that it is the authentication

that we are supposed to be chasing

Our forefathers and mothers shed their blood just to indicate

That it gonna take true education in order for us to amalgamate

To be one nation we must first put an end to all of this complication

Because it’s causing nothing but a whole lot of suffocation

But excuse me I’m just a man of my own

Seeking to uplift the world

But the earth seems to be getting heavier as more war corrupts

But I’m getting stronger as I master myself

Guns and drugs it was just bad for my health

So As-salaamu Alaikum to all the haters

That just be constantly waiting for us to fall into some type of dissipation

Us so-called black people just be constantly killing eachother with cogitation

But nod that ain’t part of my participation

I came into this world as a I built my mind with peace

My soul- is boiling like a volcano

It’s about to explode some heat

I’m talking about the whole 360

Our own true history

Some of us are just so ignorant

That we lack the true knowledge of our own true history

Allah is very angry that we are about to witness- another major catastrophe

His pear precious creation is unable to see

The true color that he created for us all to be

It is so hard to believe

That we killing eachother for something- that isn’t gonna make us all feel relief

So I leave as I came with peace

Especially to all my brother and sisters that I desire to meet.
