Teacher
I've been around the block a few times
I've even dropped a few rhymes
Scooped a few dimes
Broken some rules and paid a few fines
I'm a teacher so u can bet I've molded a few minds
I've marched with a million men
Committed what seems like a million sins
Started about a million trends
But you'll never catch me on Facebook with about a million friends

I've seen the best in the game fall from grace
So I've also seen the best being replaced
Then just to have some of the worst in the game take their space
Just to fall down faster because they can't keep up the pace
I've seen the bad side of the good and the good side of the bad
I've spit a few line's at the source sound lab

I've witnessed the birth of my kids
And the passing of my child
Such an event almost led to an insanity that drove me wild
I've verbally battled with god like a mc at the cypher
But I was only leading my soul towards hell like some demonic pied piper
Or some form of the DC sniper
I've fallen from grace and rose back to glory
But within it all I've regained my humility while writing this story

I've emptied my mind for now.

While you may have been through so many things
No matter how good bad or ugly they may seem
Its very apparent you still rein
Not allowing those things to restrain you
Something many people
In a similar situation
Are unable or could not even begin to do
sometimes your mind, life, and circumstances
Can take control of you
But not you….
Strength and Courage
Exudes from you
But that does not surprise me
You’re a black man
If no one has ever told you
And although I may not know you
I am proud of you
Keep doing what you do


This piece is very inspiring and uplifting
to me. Awesomely Penned!


Much Luv & Peace,

~4EVER :heart:

This was marvelously expressed! :great:

The O'Jays and "A Song For You" came to mind as I read it.

This was a testimony of disappointments and triumphs, of grief and joy, of chaos and peace.

Very well done and extremely moving.

I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
Impeached twice, trump is more evil than god allows! The Root says Democrats are calling out white supremacist in Congress. Yahoo says ex Navy Seal Adam Newbold who took part in the deadly insurrection, says he's not a traitor/terrorist. Charge him! The Independent says Christopher Stanton committed suicide in his basement after being arrested for taking part in the deadly insurrection.
blah blah blah
