Yes ma’am
No ma’am
Is what I’m teaching them
My child
Is my responsibility
There are no
Uncontrollable
Outbursts
Talking back
Fighting
Cussing at anytime
Telling me no
When I tell them
To do something
Their homework
Done
Their room
Clean
Graduating
A must
Book smarts
Street smarts
The legal hussle
Of this system
On check
Striving to be their best
Being
Something more
Than a thug
Or a thot
Being hard headed
And loose
Is not an option
They are
Prepared and avoiding
You
The ones with guns
Ready to kill them
Coming from my womb
Don’t try to
Slide my child
On the assembly line
Tattooing
CPS property
On their ass
Telling them to call
You
When I discipline
And correct them
This is not an unlimited
Reproduction
Making children
So you can kill them
When they are misbehaving
Out in these streets
Where guns are easily
Accessible
You won’t tie my hands
I am the Queen
In this castle
And
My King is right
Beside me
Supporting me
In my rants
Together or not
We are their protectors
Teachers
And
Nuturers
The creators of these
Little ones
In this house
We established for them
To follow
Rules and regulations
We are preparing
Them
To live
And
Be
Part of
A productive society
But
If you want them
Come and get them
Take care of them
Raise them to be
What you call
Decent human beings
Disposable children
To be killed off
Lied on
By the media
Giving a poor excuse
Why they deserved to die
Saying
They were
Part
Of a broken home
Where no one loved them
A disgrace
A delinquent
Given
A death sentence
In these streets
Not my kids
They
Will not fall
Through those
System cracks
These future
Kings and Queens
Will be
Making moves
Like champions
Building empires
Unstoppable
Pillars of the community
