Pros & Cons

Pros & Cons: A confessional, Still getting con’d out of a lot of pros, A lot of dough, But we’re still pros about it, Professionals, So we go to the polls and vote for the Congress, And we still get con’d out of progress, But Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness isn’t a contest,…

Links to Success: Understanding

Two people with understanding and no love can go further than two people with love and no understanding. Listen to one another, understand one another, and ask questions. One of the best things in this world is when people can agree to disagree. It shows the strength to stand on your own beliefs, and the…

Heads or Tales

Heads or Tales? I was born in a box, where all we knew was box well, This drink’s stronger than cottontails and oxtails, Glass full, a shot of life and death made the best cocktail, Every sip had us plotting on another risk, Every check had us plotting on another chick, As the plot thickened,…

SON•DAY

n. Son•day: A day of personal reflection. “What does it mean to be a savior? To accept every stranger? or never flee away from danger? I was born in a manger. My momma was a virgin. My purpose was to be perfect. My mother said she had a dream and it was very clear; My…

#BlackLove365

   I saw this and felt the need to write about it…. Black Men are becoming an endangered species in this world. With the systems in place, and the criminalization of the entire Black Culture, we can’t teach it in our homes and communities too. We have to give our boys a chance.  “They say…

The Good Life

I’ll probably go into politics where lying is legal. I’ll sign a bill that says, “Free Patrón and Protection for all the people.” Let’s fuck and get fucked up! Let’s fuckin’ get fucked up! Run the buck up.  Whatever gives you life, invest in it, Whether Chipotlé or a fresh piece of pressed mint, Sweeter…

The 9 to 5 Blues

I got the blues! Working hard for the green, Seeing red on anyone who intervenes, Now how can paper beat rock? I keep my sanity, rather my solidity, But these bills consume me; January 1, February 1, March 1, April….I must be a fool! Standing in these showers, because, well, As a Black Man, I’m…
