Talk to em
Only my true motherfucker know
Realest shit I ever wrote it's, it's

Check this

I be at the mall
walk up at in the store
glance up at the wall
pick out a few kicks
i need eleven in these
mater a fact while you at it
bring them in a size six
i take shorty shoes off
like here try on these Jay's make shore them shit fit
but in my head it gets thick
saying Joey fall back
cause thats not your kid
I don't know you lil nigga
and plus I got a son of my own
but he's at home and the way he's being raised
i don't really condone (nah)
cause his pops been gone
fuck it ill explain it to him later when he grown
enough to have a phone ask him why mommy hit me and he gotta sneak to call me whenever he's alone
so you wouldn't know it but i got a soft spot for you
she would share them same obstacles
looking from the outside may seem like you neglecting but when he slips up and call me dad
I correct him
I protect him when baby girl start
venting about you I say respect him
and though it seems out of order
my own mistakes has turn me into your biggest supporter
fast forward you wouldn't believe
how I could love like mine what I didn't conceive
try to help him be shit that I never achieve
am I doing it for him or is it my own grieve to see
me and my baby moms we don't do the conversations
shame cramp in the back two bed room shack

with seven people living there just congregating
some when you child with me i'm over compensating
I'm talking eight bedrooms seven baths
my son thinking that's the shit that only heaven have
mines got a deeper pool yours get to see the view
white marble around the inger mines got gold and white
yours just got to walk outside and the funny shit
the irony of it all and its sad
cause you walk away
yea i'm the step dad
and then you get on skype
saying how you being whats the word
and I be in the back ground listening like this mother fucker here got some nerve
he says bye daddy I love you
I be wanting to snuff you but I wouldn't have him thinking less of you
but he's accepted and the shit is wild
he picks up on ever think and he's just a child
but through all my resistance
i'm afraid this two year old could already see the difference
he see you don't provide when your capable
why we never fix things while we are still able to
so your annoyed kinda hampers me give my void
I always wanted a family
just to greet when I get through the door
you gone to have to take the "L" I can't give you yours
i'll do all of da work
you ain't gotta be bothered
you could be a dad
I'll be his father
I relate though
so I know it hurts
gotta be uncomfortable
when the role reverse
I been in your shoes my whole life nigga
try these on I relate though so I know it hurts
gotta be uncomfortable when the role reverse
