The Reformation

A hard shelled exterior, so they call you a nut.

Ran from your sexuality, from fear of being a slut.

So many scars on your heart, from being broken and stitched.

No wonder you have an attitude, and they think of you as a bitch.

You’ve been purposely pimped and played,

dramatically dragged through the mud.

Dropped you off in the depths of hell, and somehow you still show us love.

Your courage has has been contaminated, siphoned the strength from your soul.

Chilled the warmth that was in your smile

and left your heart bitter and cold.

So many wounds you have valiantly endured by the hands that were meant to protect.

Called you derogatory names for so long,

eventually, thats what you began to project.

What did they do to your spirit?

I can’t stand how they left you.

So I strive to become a better man myself

because that’s the only way I can protect you.

Enigmatic Love Affair

I am so enthused when I see you, I’m past enthusiastic.

Your beauty I’m a fan of, so call me a fanatic.

Those eyes take my breath away, making me asthmatic.

Your kiss is the ecstasy that keeps me ecstatic.

Your charm and charisma are beyond charismatic.

This romance we play at, is super romantic.

Being that we’ve weathered the drama and extreme dramatics,

finally comfortable with our status, there’s no static.

With us, it’s love; mania that leaves me manic, knowing

you are my galaxy, my world that’s galactic.

No silly games, calling of names, no antics; we’ve grown over

the years, together or apart, no panic.

God has a plan, we couldn’t see the true schematics.

Though at times it seemed it would fail contact; sporadic.

Now we’ve bounced back; I’m elated, really ecstatic.

We are an unmovable force together, we create havoc.

What we’ve been through and experienced, I wouldn’t

change it, let no other have it.

This love is real between us, no fantasy but fantastic…

The Declaration

The angel of my destiny is finally standing next to me

can she be

the secret ingredient to my recipe?

Yes siree!

She’s the one, unquestionably.


I need her laying here face to face with me.

A sexy thang, she’s the yin to my yang

so I put a claim on her.


No stain on her, and I put my name on her.

She’s the Mrs, you bitches…

You bustas and suckas will never touch her.

Ha! Yeah I’m cappin’

Caught you nappin’

Took and poured my love on her

that’s why she’s got my gov on her.

Can’t you tell that she’s under Jah’s spell?

Didn’t take long for us to gel

because I caught her when she fell…

A Kweenz Worth

I want to vibe with my Kweenz for a second.  There is a verse from the Bible I want to build with you (all the ladies) on.  It comes from Proverbs 11:22 and it states “As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a lovey woman who lacks discretion”.  I have shared this verse with the young women in my family because it is so profound.  We all know that the swine is looked at as a dirty and filthy animal.  It has no care or regard for anything except for fulfilling it’s own desires.  A ring of gold back then was something of extreme value.  Something to be treasured and respected.  I have witnessed so many lovely women, young and old, who have put their valuable selves in the snout of a man who acts like a swine.  Just like the swine who disrespects that ring of gold, that no-good man will drag you through the mud as well.  He will drag you to the point where your value, self-worth and self-esteem will dramatically decrease, leaving you to the point where you feel worthless and unappreciated.  So Kweenz, if you truly feel that you are as valuable as that ring of gold, don’t attach yourself to a person who you know will not respect, admire or cherish your self-worth.  Have a greater discretion about who you give yourself to because, truthfully, only a King is truly worthy of a Kween.

The Proposition

You heard about my reputation, that explains your hesitation.

Thinking that you will be misused and that I’ll leave your heart bruised

Naw, boo…

I just want to spoil you, show you that I’m loyal too.

Create a legacy, Isn’t that what all the Royals do?

I’m not the perfect man, but I’ve got the perfect plan.

Take my hand and let me lead you. I know just what you need, boo.

Them bustas cannot please you.

Desires unfulfilled…

I’ll caress away your stress. Now tell me how you feel?

A bad boy with a good heart, you’ll always be protected.

A woman is a reflection of her man and I need to be reflected.

Combine your sexy with my swag and let’s see what we create.

Don’t even worry about the haters,

they’re just mad, they can’t relate…
