I WAS RAISED BY THE CRAZIES

Location

I was raised by the 

Soul food cooking

long legged, short legged

"Lay down and let me braid your hair."

Type of Women

 

 

I was raised by

the perm getting, let me pat my weave

"You better not be cheating on me."

"I don't know how your car got keyed."

Type of women

 

I was raised by

The " I could care less about what you think , I'ma do me."

"When we get in this store don't look at or ask for nothing because you ain't getting nothing."

"I know your 16 but in this restaurant you 12 today."

Type of Women

 

I was raised by the "Child Please"

"You better finish your greens"

"Don't make me have to get out this chair."

" Stop all that crying before I give you something to cry about."

Type of women

 

 

I was raised by

The most Stubborn

Strongest

Smartest

Bravest

Women ever and I wouldn't change that for anything

I was raised by the Best Women.
