If you are still 
waiting to exhale
Don't exhale on me

I am sick and tired 
of all this black male bashing
Yes, there are some brothers
Like me,
who have gone to college,
learned the system,
and utilized my head for more than
a hat rack,
without tap dancing my ay to heaven.

And yes!
There are also some brothers who prey
on their own
Whose own sense of logic is meted out
Just us!
Let us pray for these brothers.

If you are waiting to exhale
Don't exahle on me

My ego finds this hard to take
more than once in a lifetime.
