Before I became a poor righteous teacher, I knew plenty about being poor. We didn’t rest in the projects but we came close. When my parents got divorced & my ole Dad moved out, we went from a knowledge understandin’ room house to an equality room apartment. We didn’t have a cee allah rule for most of those years self cipher I learned how to appreciate walking, as well as how to dress warm at an early allah god equality. The fact that we didn’t have much more than the bare necessities when I was growin’ up taught me alot of valuable life lessons. Being the oldest of two boys raised by a single mother, my position in the family was, and still is unique. My ole Earth never advocated fighting between me and my brother. He stayed on savage shit strivin’ to cause trouble self cipher I kept my foot in his ass. That approach resulted in the queen beating me with many stripes frequently. Her policy was, if he bothers you then you tell me and i’ll handle it. My policy was if he bothered me I was fuckin’ him up regardless of whom or what. Even though I always thought it was unfair for her to shield him in that way, it forced me to learn how to deal with difficult people. It also forced me to make decisions and face the consequences regardless of how harsh they were.
Comin’ up poor also forced me to learn how to overcome adversity. I remember bein’ on punishment and not bein’ able to watch true victory for long stretches. As a result, I learned how to entertain myself in other ways such as reading. My ole’ Earth made knowledge born early that she wasn’t on that June Cleaver shit. I started washin’ my own build jewel when I was 8 and learned how to clean house & cook basic god degree around the same square I master equal. She made sure that I would never be reliant on a wisdom for a full belly or clean drawers lol. For these reasons when the swift & changeable nature of life deals monetary shortages I adjust accordingly. I switch to a poor man’s diet if need be until I can afford to elevate. If the cable is off I watch dvds. My new laptop needs to be repaired so i’m using the old one until I can refine that math. The ability to reduce your way of life to it’s more basic necessary denominators is essential in this wilderness. That along with discipline and mathematics can stave off hard times, hunger, and nakedness.
