Told her one day,….
Hold up AMA call this Papi
Written instinctively – with depression
and yet heavy thoughts like oppression.
I am obliged to love, to care, to give a hoot,
My life might need a real boot,
Real boot to put some downs in!
My life, need a re-boot.
At 14 or 15 – okay in my teens,
I was bout to be Papi
Everything was just instinct.
The gal – so distinct
That one day and never stuck my dick in
I was lucky not to have,
But I regret it,
Older age – am thinking always
Like I wanna have, ooh I wanna have
Like I deserve all that they serve.
‘Do you want to be Papi?
Do you want to be a good Papi?
Listen to I, Papi*
One day you will be a father,
You will be faced with the task to raise, provide and care for your family,
And so many other lengthy tasks.’
‘You nuh like them!
Them teenagers and fuck boys!’
NOTE: papi* where i come from means your father. The other use of Papi is picked from Spanish to mean father. Hope you enjoyed this piece.
