People will always say

what you can and cannot achieve

but only you

can find the reasons 2 believe

no man alive can accurately say

whether Jesus Christ died

People will always say

what you can and cannot achieve

but only you

can find the reasons 2 believe

no man alive can accurately say

whether Jesus Christ died

young or gray

4 in the end 

we must trust in the faith 

of our 

soul affirmations


baby girl

the only entity not prejudice

in this world is the dawning sun

upon the racist and the righteous

it shines on everyone

illuminating the blessed cross

or the barrell of a gun


as I write these words

I pause frequently when 

they begin 2 cry

if loving you is not a blessing

your daddy is prepared 2 die

4 you are the truth

in my 

soul affirmations


remember the false rumors

as the tide ebbed and swayed

the day 

your mother and I broke away

the whispers of how your life 

would never be the same

what they didnt know

is your mother and I were 

blessed from the start

and though we had 2 part

you remained our 



soul affirmation


I know

life is not always as it seems

but our earthly existence began

when the creator had a dream

and even he was forced 2 rest 

on the seventh day

come what may

always know the road 2 achievement

is often paved with discontent

find a special place in your heart 

2 repent

trust your daddy 

you will be sent confirmation

of your 

soul affirmations


if I


upon this very day

these words I pen will last forevermore


I truly adore

so always be proud 

of your legacy

4 together your mother and I

shaped who you are

but you control whom you will be

you represent the sweetest fruit 

from the tree

of african  american 

carribean royalty

and 4 this wretched life

and yes


you have always been

and shall forever be


soul affirmation
