I LIKE the things it would be nice to have, but I can’t control the existence or lack thereof. A neighborhood where bullets aren’t flying around, the threat of robbery isn’t constant, and kids can stand on bus-stops waiting to get to school without having guns put in their faces Families who aren’t dysfunctional Friends who are real friends Even relationships Nice weather, preferrably where the sun is shining and my skin isn’t burning through my clothes A cool breeze, especially at night Being able to have my windows open at night

Loves…

I LOVE the things I can control. I make them happen as often as possible. Also included here are the things that simply make my day, bring a smile to my being, and would make the world a far better place if they consisted on a daily basis Qaamar - my grandson whom I’ve had the privilege, pain, and pleasure of raising since he was 16 months old. He turned 13 March 22, 2017 My mother -- God rest her hell raising soul The crew from my old neighborhood on Hopkins and 23rd. Even the haters. LOL Writing - fiction and screenwriting Working, being productive, creating Any and Everything Alanis Morissette Any and Everything Chrisette Michele Alanis in my earholes - LOUD Chrisette in my earholes - LOUD Alanis blasting all through my house Chrisette blasting all through my house Being left the hell alone so I can listen to Chrisette and Alanis - LOUD in my ears, or blasting all through my house “Madness,” by Alanis Morissette “Meant to Be,” by Chrisette Michele Using ellipses when they’re completely unnecessary, like here… A tall, dark, thick, strong minded, determined, hella grown, God fearing man with big feet and hands and a chest made for laying my head upon and long, thick legs that form that perfect lap for me to straddle as we hold each other close and I tell him the desires of my heart while fulfilling his A man who’ll love me for me and let me have my way because I’m reasonable and he knows I’d never take it too far A man who’ll play basketball with me and can beat me, but won’t, ‘cuz why? A man who’ll dunk for me, but not on me A man who can appreciate my “tenny shoe” fanaticism and demonstrate his appreciation by contributing to it Red Lobster - a restaurant with the best food where I can feel grown up ‘cuz I’m drinking liquor - something not even us big kids should be allowed to do My home studio. Yes, I’m working on an album. It’s like the reincarnation of Millie Jackson - but hip hop. Yes, I cuss - a lot too. My hip hop name is, “O.A.L.” (O-A-L). When the tracks start dropping, you’ll know what that means. White music - Yes, where only white people are doing the singing - Alanis Morisette, Pearl Jam, Steppenwolf, Guns-N-Roses, Dave Matthews Band, Cold Play, and some of the other cool ass white stuff that’s come out more recently: Fallout Boys, Maroon 5, One Republic, and a few more. Black music - Hip Hop, Rap, R&B, Pop - Chrisette Michele, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Rhianna, Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco, Usher, Busta Rhymes, B.O.B., Wale, Drake, The Roots, and a few more. Mostly conscious shiznit, but some of that dumb, non-productive stuff is hella hot too.  Cursing - I know. But, it keeps me from hitting. Profanity is my Xanax minus the health destroying side effects. Friends who know how to be friends. Run’s House - ALL of his cool azz,  productive, do something with your life kids - Miley’s going to rule the planet; Run’s cool azz; and Run’s cool azz wife -- Justine Movies: Tyler Perry (Everything), Avengers (all), Bond flicks, Bourne flicks, Dang near anything Angela Bassett, Will Ferrel, Jim Carrey, Jenifer Lewis, and, again, Tyler Perry. Cable Network Shows: Outlander, Scandal, Game of Thrones, How to Get Away With Murder, Power, Survivor’s Remorse, Once Upon a Time, Wynona Earp, Queen of the South, Million Dollar Listing (NY and LA) TV: Empire, Blackish - Don’t watch too much regular TV or non-cable network channels NBA FINALS 2016 - GAMES 5-7, but especially 7! Lebron James, Shaq, Kevin Durant, Allen Iverson, and other stars who love their mothers unconditionally and rewarded her hard work with hard work of their own. That’s some special shiznit All athletes and non-athletes who got off their asses and made a life for themselves to where they could reach back and make a better life for those who’ve had their backs Bron, Shaq, Durant, Iverson, and other “Mama’s Boys” who don’t give a damn who knows it Strong men who deal with the reality of what is and work daily to make things better for everyone around them. MUCH PROPS!

Whatevahs…

Whatevahs is that shit that makes life suck that I have little to no control of. It’s like, “whatevah,” ‘cuz ain’t nothing you can do about it. Ya know? It’s pretty much the stuff I hate. Racism Slum Landlords Worthless mothers Worthless fathers LIARS! Grown folk who hurt children - ANY child, but especially their own or family members Anyone who can’t admit their faults, deal with the reality of who they are, and change to become better Haters! DEADBEAT ASS, MALES & FEMALES WHO “DO NOT” TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN DAMNED CHILDREN!

It be I, my Lord, TWIM
