A Hood Female

by Sheila Gainey
(Washington Dc)

Watching as they take him away
Wondering how long this time he'll stay
I want a different life one to be proud of
One my mom would smile down on from up above
But as his woman i must hold him down
Now that he's gone i hold the crown
The drugs money boys are now mine to lead
My family, they family now i must feed
But what kind of mother does that make me
This is my harsh reality
Not knowing the snitch lies under my nose
Never knew he was so close
Now the police is here to take me to jail
My son in foster care aka baby hell
Now Before this happens my choices will tell
Do i choose my son???
Or my place as A Hood Female?
