Can I Holler At You


No life ending disease, but in need of one wish,
Failed to make you mine, siblings say enough go fish,
Selfish as I may be I want your happiness, regardless of it including me,
You're the reason for my campus life,
Wedding days vows excite surely you will be wonderful wife,
If my season ever comes promise it won't be the same,
Wrote Dreams for you,
Still got feelings for you,
Had thoughts of a ring for you.

Water over blood our standing based on your body language,
If so I rather lay,
My head down after I pray,
For your concussion to knock sense,
Or for God to grant us penance,
Opposites since our birth since I came forth,
Like a law abiding officer, big brother,
You and I were inseparable now why bother,

Only Father I have awaits me,
The day you exited, I condemned me,
Myself and I realized real lies hidden within your eyes,
Center raid I us with a dye and meter to measure the stereotype consolation prize,
You taught a crash course in life then cut ties,
Bows and ribbons on Christmas nights,
Truly yours that valediction produced a new light,
This sun won't raise his children just to set into motion pictures that don't show a father.
