I tried



"I used to think she didn't love us
Cause she beat us so much, plus she came home drunk
But every now and then she'd knock on wood, and say
I tried to do the best that I could - and I believe her
Cause she was treated evil out the box
You can't get what you ain't got"

*sigh* I know what you mean... I wish I had the same excuse for mine, but her parents are truly the meekest most laid back chill individuals, if anything their sin was hading her over to that dumb evil shit of a grandma she had and her in turn being made "her favorite"

Mizrepresent said...

Wow!

First your poem...that last line wrapped it up lady.

Ghetto Boys - loved them, my favorite was "My mind is playing tricks on me"

Those dancers - man, we are some creative people, who would have ever thought miming could touch the way they touched me...in the words of Soumy "You gonna have me shouting up in here."

"Behold the Lamb" always gets me emotional.

I can't watch the videos now, but I already know that it's the Geto Boys. Man, I love that song. So true. So true. Once you are out of that immediate picture, the picture becomes that much clearer to you. Love every verse of that song. Real ish.
