"#Dog if you don't fuck with me, why'd you come to my crib to burn one and #chill." Is a common response I've received from a number of people over the previous week or so.
There goes a saying: "Keep your #friends close and your #enemies closer." I know who the #puppet masters are. And I know who the main stage puppets are too.
So I break #bread with them.
Learn their habits.
Have deep conversations to figure out how they think and how far they can dive.
There was a point where I would start #crazy arguments in chats just to see who reacted how.
Gotta know who you can #trust.
But a year ago, I learned you've gotta take it a step further to #protect yourself.
You can't file a police report without the perps name, address, and phone number.
They'll look at you real stupid otherwise.
Matter of fact, in #Philadelphia, I've learned they'll look at you stupid regardless, because they'd rather deal with a crime than one which is potential.
Same ol adage is why the camp of pound puppies stayed ever so close.
Gotta be #intimidated, to be intimidated though.
Same reason cats had "the sensitive bruh" give me a speech to try and bring me on over to the imaginary pow wow circle to diffuse the situation. "Let that bitch cry if off. We must protect this house." House been crumbled and fell fam. Y'all protecting the ashes. Can't have a house without the highest energy present.
Y'all #cats been killing #Shekinah, so y'all know wassup.
Cats wanna play in the #light.
In 09 one of my high school classmates little sisters was forced to perform oral sex on one of my ol heads.
I was the dean, but I was in class.
Got over there and it was done.
But it was horrible.
Because my sisters high school track coach was the young the young ladies mentor.
I've gotta live with that.
I can't go to my high school #homecoming game and look old my teammate in the face after what I allowed to happen on my watch.
It's deeper than folk think.
Let's go 10 feet deeper.
In 07 I was told I had to dedicate 10 years of my life to the #chapter. Our whole line was told that. A few hours after the burning sands.
And I took it to heart.
