letter to my baby

As i sit here
beside the second floor window
it's 3:00 am and you have yet to fall asleep
the moonlight enters
and like stage lights head directly for you
Forward and backward we move
and i can't help but smile at your stubborness
He looks just like his daddy, they say
he acts just like him too i respond
and now while it's just me and you
hearts beating as one, call of love
I give to you all my hopes for the future
devotion, passion, contentment
don't lose your zeal for all things you believe in
but don't let your obstinate nature render you unyielding
We fall hard
that is, when we fall
in all things including love
i hope that you inherit my sense of compassion, empathy
They say walk a mile in another man's shoes
i'm asking you to imagine never owning them
i imagine for the future, a young man
not afraid to stand for his ideals
knowing that his worth is more than what he makes
infinitely greater than what others may say
and although i don't know how much time we have left together
i hope that when this letter finds you in the future
you'll understand

Responses to annoying ass questions

Why don't you loosen up that grip
? Listen bastard if you don't like my handshake don't shake my damn hand. that simple. I'm not breakin no bones. I just come with the firm handshake bcuz one, it lets u know i'm a serious person and two it means i actually see ur ass and it's not some bootleg piece of shit i give to evryone passing thru. The day i give you a weak handshake is the day i stop caring. To me it's like a kiss. no fucking kissing the air by your cheek type shit. Just do it.You know that aggressiveness is why your ass is single right? maybe so dumbass, but if some guys have a problem with it then obviously they're not the one for me. What the hell ima look like playing a character, some caricature of what i think a man wants? So tell me this douchbag, what the fuck ima do afterwards? keep up the damn charade? You know all that frustration is gon let loose some way. Next thing you know i'm in jail cuz i killed the man and you know i'm blaming your ass for that mess.

Why do you dress like that? So you wanna dress like a party's gon jump off in ur 9:30 am women's lit class and wear heels everyday. that's fine. i dress like this because sweats or shorts and a tee are comfortable . That simple. mattafact i've just gotten ova the wearing-your-pajama-pants-out the-house phase 2 years ago. When that shit comes back, ima be all ova it. Besides i don't see the need to dress up unless it's a special occasion or something. When that happens i do it up. people swear just cuz i dress laidback (ok maybe bummy is more appropriate) most of the time, that must mean i don't have a sense of style then bastards wanna act all shocked when i come thru lookin nice.

Why do you wear high heels? Why the fuck is your 4 foot two inch ass wearing them? yeah continue to ask dumb questions. Maybe cuz my ass wanna be a few inches taller also. Oh, im already tall? so wat maybe i like looking down at your ass and the further up i rise, the further i get away from ur bullshit. Shoot they're cute and if i'm gonna dress up only once in a while, i betta give you a show

Are you gay? No and i'm not confused neither. I'm strictly dickly baby. However the simple fact that i aint tryna talk to you doesn't mean i'm not interested in men as a whole. oh and the clothes and 'aggressiveness'....refer to above

Really? I don't look Haitian huh? so tell me wat's a Haitian supposed to look like and try to explain without coming off sounding like a dumbass. You can't huh? yeah next time just shut upWhy do you laugh like that? niccah, why do you fart like that? yeah i know i sound like i'm chokin on a grown man. It's just the way shit comes out. so now u want me to come with a fake laugh too.

Why don't you go out with him? Now your girl doesn't really have a type per se but we all have our standards, some lower than others but we got them. So you want me to get ova the fact that he's 3 and 3/4 " shorter than me (god forbid i say 4), is dumber than shit, can't hold a decent conversation to save his life and on top of that i got a good 30 pounds on him. I don't care that he has a cute face. oh really you think he's all that. why u foisting his skinny ass off on me then?
