had to make a trip to the Dept Store, lil mans was beggin to come with. I was like nah, (cause I wanted to smoke in the truck on route). selfish shit. So I got to the truck, looked up at the window seent hem looking down at me.
all this boy wanna do is watch Chuggingtons, watch some talking car named Lightning McQueen, and draw/paint colorful maps of the continental United States…put him in TaeKwonDo and this nigga STAY looking up in the bleachers, waving at me instead of paying attention to the sensei… this nigga will duck from a 5-yard pass from his brother…
I said all that to say tho,… sometimes when innoncence intervenes its a beautiful thing.
Had an experience like that with my grandma a lil before she passed.
I had just gotten fresh ready to go out, she was visiting from florida. My cologne scent mixing with the smell of boo boo and old people I wasnt tryna hear. On my way out the door she beckoned me to sit next to her. She began talking about family and “during her time”… I was so enthralled, the scent of the potty went from being unbareable and became a portal to her time. I sat and listened, and by the end of it all I had a greater appreciation for my family.
Knowing dudes thats neglecting their seeds
Instead of taking care of em they spending money on trees
I pray for you deadbeat daddies
Cause when them kids get grown its too late for you
Now you old and you getting shitted on

I just couldn’t imagine having to take care of a little person that grows..
^ taking care of, is just one aspect, defending, protecting with life and limb is what you’ll spend most time thinking about.
and teaching the child how to become a productive, self-motivated person, is prolly the hardest and most time consuming part of parenthood ..
something small like teaching a child how to tie his shoes properly, or comb and brush his peasey hair, and brush his own teeths..or fold his clothes after he takes them off… that shit takes time and can work a niggas nerves…
Had a similar experience with my grand dad before he passed.It`s like he knew his time was near and he wanted to leave me with a gem or two.The conversation wasn`t too coherent or cohesive but I guess he just wanted my presence.He died the next morning after his chemo session.I owe everything good I`ve become to that man.He was a example of black manhood(II).Nigga came to NY with 56 dollars to his name.When he died he left a brownstone fully paid for.My grandma is straight for life collecting rent from kizzas.He showed and proved.
