Morning Edition - 2/1/07


On Fours
by Cocoa Rican

If I could see what others saw
I’d probably be so much more
My heart, my talent all to waste
Taking life at a snails pace
Love, it meets me and says hi
I turn away, meek, so shy
Friends they grow and change with time
My wheels they spin, stuck deep in grime
The young they gain momentum, pass me by
Rather than pick up pace, I wither, die
My voice I’ll find, one day, I say
Until then my soul tatters and frays
Do it today, tomorrow’s not yours
Without the will, life kicks me, I’m on fours

On Blast
What are you putting off for the future that you know in your heart you should be doing today?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Oh yeah I think the youngest one has pink eye so we will be heading to the doctors at 8am. Did I say it was three in the morning. I tell ya I love my babies but it is times like these where you are like Damn I made a mistake.

Donya-

Girl, don't think that way. Think of how lucky you are to be given the opportunity to mold young lives. Lives that will serve to keep the wheels of history turning and, hopefully, make a better future. It's an opportunity that many of us will never have.

Most all of our mothers went through the same things. And I can honestly say that none of us would be anywhere without mothers. "Mommies" are truely the world's most prescious and overlooked resource.

Off the top of my head, a few things come to mind:
1. Writing my own novel
2. Returning to school
3. Getting cosmetic work done

As an aside...gettin' the f*ck up outta New York... I'm fast losing my love for NY! In answer to Ms. Thing on VH1 - No, I don't have love for New York! :)
