To Zaria

I hope this poem finds you well
As I am having grief
Your mother seems to only sell
My image as a thief
And so I wrote this little rhyme
So one day you will see
That all I want for you in time
Is to be truly free
Many will say that I am bad
And threw you to the wind
And this is not to make you sad
I’d say it’s to defend
My love for you will never break
My heart, it has it seems
This life is always give and take
To show you is my dream
You see, there will be many times
When PEOPLE lead you stray
But look between these mellow rhymes
And see a better day
Do not believe all that you hear
Investigate your sights
For you create this world, my dear
Reach unimagined heights
I look at how I have to share
This poem with the world
In hope that you will find it fair
My perfect baby girl
Remember that you may be here
But you are from the sky
Don’t let temptation bring you fear
See truth in other’s eyes
Try not to take from this dumb place
Seek only in yourself
That void behind your shining face
Is where you find your help
I know that some believe in god
I am not quite the same
Your spirit is the strongest rod
To beat the dark to shame
Don’t take in things not up to par
You are just what you eat
And influences do leave scares
Be careful which you meet
Love what you do. Do only that
Don’t let this world break you
An arsenal’s under your hat
Make sure you aim it true
 I feel a pain in thinking you
Won’t see me for a while
But praying hard is what I’ll do
To make sure that you smile
This rotten world is so unfair
I tried to make it right
And that’s the burden I will bear
Each day and every night
Remember what you’ve heard of me
Is never fully true
Because tho it is hard to see
I did this all for you

My love…
