Take my kindness for kindness. Know—my good side is my best side. #dejure
My mother, my father—don’t put shit pass me. My brother, my sister they bouty bouty—riding if I’m rolling.
My King, he would say I’m cutthroat-sweet, call me gingersnap.
My closest amigos know I speak my heart no feelings saved.
Newcomers welcome—my doors are always open, but new energy is checked like baggage at my gate.
Right bout now that’s all that matters. So you get in where you fit in—standing room only,
all seats reserved, no rooms left vacant.
