Not Black But Not White Mixed Race Or Mahogany Rite - Poem by Jason Bass

Mahogany Man
You never know what you got
'Till someone takes it all away
It always seemed so close
But now I know it's so far away
...You never know where to turn
Until you've missed the chance
It's usually to late
When you're ready to ask, 'May I have this dance? '
I thought I knew what it was like
To have everything I wanted
But then one thing occurred to me
After I was badly betrayed
There are few things I need in life
One of these is love
I've learned this through hate and strife
The other is loyal friends
Who will stand by you forever,
I have one of these
And I will release it never,
Not even if you say, 'vile dirty lies not even to thrust between the worlds most beautiful thighs.'
So please help me now
I need come to love
And I can tell you this
It isn't going to come from above
I know it's true
I've been a bad boy
And when I've had a problem
I' dealt with iron and fist and the wise ran and hid
But that's got to change
I've got humility to, all that i need to know is where im going too..
