You Never Knew A Friend This True

Spliffing in the car...
Just staring at the night sky pictures
In the stars...
Glaring with a bright shine!
I'm back home I was at the store
In the trunk trying to stash a batch of bags and more
About ten minutes later...
They are at your door
You don't even know yet because you hadn't asked me for it
About the time you'd realize...
I was long gone
Knocked once and then left and I was gone on
This is really nothing new
It's an old song...
If my people needed me at two I'm on the road holmes
Just know I'm always down for my people
I ain't even trying to hear nobody doubting them either
'Cause I know if it was me they'd be...
Rounding the heaters
I'm the only one who really could rechannel the evil
Now I could talk and talk but they
Already know...
I don't have to say I'm loyal cause they already know
I am just as far away as a call on a phone
And it's impossible for me to say it all in a poem
But I will say this...
Because you stayed true and you never betrayed me
I will honor you through whatever I make
See the bottom to the top...
Every step that I take
I'll forever mention ya'll names whenever I pray
So my partners are my family
A limited few I promise you...
That you never knew a friend this true

A poem decicated to those who never criticized me in any way but believed in and supported me when nobody else did... thank you

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
