“Hood Checks”

For as long I’ve known you, you made a lot of my friends celebrities, neighborhood superstars, a successful living and a creative way to provide financially for our families. A piece of matter, let alone some simple materials to compose collectively a bouncy instrument that is shaped similar to our world, and yet it could take me all across the atlas of an globe? Who are you? Who referred me to you? and why have you been so significant to my existence? I have questions, yet no answers….

But In retrospect, you have answered me in more ways than one without saying a simple word. The ending results could make me smile in happiness, cry in anger, and yell in discomfort.

You have one purpose in life for yourself, but for us, you have globally changed the perception of many inner city adoloscents that are in search of themselves, not strongly supported by many parents, but if used properly, the ending results always surpasses its expectations.

I love you, whoever you may be.

  1. I feel as if the speaker is speaking about a friend he made or the streets and uses the streets as symbolism for his life. Really good structure and enjoyed it because it felt like a personal note.

  2. Awww I love you too Mel Ms I am so very proud of you and the man you have become and will continue to grow into.
