Poetry Corner: New Ownership (D.A.D.)

What’s a dad?

Must be some shit I never had

Sometimes you create your own roadmap

Refuse to set mine up for the same trap

Step up or Step aside

Fatherhood- The inaugural Step to Black pride

So much more than just babydaddy

Best realize I da Pappy

Fewer things make me as happy

The eyes and the hair is mine

Even on days it’s nappy

DEFINITION. ADDED. DAILY.

This way the Child’s Self Confidence is never a maybe

Here to set them up for Success

No matter the cost of me

Here to Guide them

Till they can develop their own Philosophy

Nothing tops a true father

Most single mothers falled

Tho they tried harder

If you Skeet you meet invited a Child

Now he has to compete?

Life is hard enough

She’s Pregnant

Life just called your bluff

If he’s the dog

You had to be his bitch

I Pray this generation put the labels in and pull the black family uut the ditch

If we don’t train Young Mental soldiers

How will they respond to war?

If we don’t see over the horizon

How will they comprehend what’s in store?
