Grey matters (Part 1)

Posted in TBC on March 15, 2012 by drevolutionary1

I like things black and white
So sue me
Let’s bring our feelings to the light
So there’s no confusion

No shade, but 
these grey matters perplex
my grey matter
(And the white for that matter)

If I made another grey reference
It would we be to your anatomy
Then again, that image is real clear
First thing you shared with me

Got me thinking you’re Dorian
And I’m painting your portrait
I’m doin’ what I can
So I’m not forcing it

Gonna let things ride
While I eye the overcast skies
No expectations for sun
No hopes for grey to be undone

See these matters ain’t new to me
Niggas had my mental in the red
But now I’m in the black
Greyscale balanced in the ledger head

Lemons, so YELLOW and ROUND, enable my drink of choice
They make SOUR mix, and with and tequila, it’s SWEET, JUICY, and TART
That magical CITRUS FRUIT is zesty–don’t judge it’s PEEL!

As I sip red wine
tannins invade my senses,
and cause a coma

Sometimes I wonder what is most EFFECTIVE
DISCIPLINARY actions bordering on invective
A CLASSROOM MANAGER’s job is never done
But I can’t be AFRAID TO inject a little fun

When I dispense knowledge and justice
and CARRY OUT my will
Students will obey, trust this
Heir ap(parents) they ARE to foot the bill

It is NOT the seed that is responsible
No, not da water or the son
The child is a rational agent, indispensable
seems indefensible, but her time will come

I can’t wait till you can squeeze me for real
Feel your scraggly beard against mine
We’ll be past words and smilies in due time
It can be as innocent as a “bear” hug
Or as sexy as a “bare” hug…

An intention is where it all begins
Now is my time to seize its potential
Drive uncertainty out at it’s root
Redeem my pledge to love myself
Engender qualities of the man I hope to be

Remember when I said I would?
Oh, that was a time ago…
So what? No time like the present
Although I may have doubts
reflection is my best tool
In a world of dangers and temptations
only those who can will survive…
