About Motherfuckas, And Why They Are So Necessary

Recently, I experienced a great and profound disappointment in my life. Boo-hoo. Woe is me. Being a human being, I’m not exactly a newbie in the field of disappointment.

This particular one, it hurt me so much, I felt it down deep in my soul. When the soul hurts, it’s serious business.

Without going into great detail, I will say, I’d lost my trust in man, and in all humankind. I'd forgotten to Trust Only in God, as a rule. Man is full of bones, heart and bullshit parts, and thus, man is bound to bullshit you, and disappoint you, and lie to you, and smile in your face and stab you in the back with such cunning and swift precision, you won’t even feel the blade coming.

When someone does this to you, whether they be a man or a woman, it’s a Motherfucker’s Move.

In life, we need to be aware of the Motherfuckers. They are everywhere, yo! You can’t and you won’t always spot them right away. Why? Because Motherfuckers are shape-shifters, damn it! Act like you know! They can wear the face of a friend or your boss, your family, or even your lover. What makes them Motherfuckers is that they won’t really care enough about you to support you when you’re down, or have your back when that back is against the wall. When you’re hurt, when you’re struggling, when you’re trying to keep your head above water, that’s when the Motherfuckers will show you their True Face.

That’s when a Motherfucker will rise from the dens of their wretched Motherfucked-ness.

So, upon the Great Disappointment in my life, caused by another kind of Motherfucker entirely, I sought friendship, instead of stress. I sought understanding, instead of madness. I sought empathy, instead of selfishness. And I sought love from those who claimed to love me.

When you love someone, and they require space... you give them space.
When you love someone, and they ask for peace… you give them peace.
When you love someone, and they need to be alone… you give them their alone time.

But a Motherfucker won’t care about any of that shit.
A Motherfucker has his or her own agenda.

A Motherfucker will make demands upon you.
A Motherfucker will make erroneous accusations about you.
A Motherfucker will not give a shit about you or your feelings.
A Motherfucker will always find some new shit to bitch about.
A Motherfucker will say some shit with no other objective than to Piss. You. Off.

And yes, a Motherfucker is chronically insecure.

A Motherfucker will secretly smile at your misfortune.
A Motherfucker doesn’t care if there’s a death in your family.
A Motherfucker will only crave more attention.
A Motherfucker will drain you of your last once of energy.
And then that Motherfucker will still ask for more.
A Motherfucker can’t stand it when you tell them NO!

A Motherfucker truly believes they are the planet’s most important person.
And yet, that same Motherfucker needs constant emotional reinforcement.
A Motherfucker will try to make you doubt your own abilities.
A Motherfucker is truly a miserable human being.

But I want to give all The Real Motherfuckers their rightful due.

You Motherfuckers inspire me to be the best that I can be.

You Motherfuckers give me new confidence in myself.
You Motherfuckers make me realize the hero within me.
You Motherfuckers make something in me rise higher.
You Motherfuckers stoke my creativity’s fire.
You Motherfuckers are soooooo damn necessary.
You Motherfuckers make me stronger than I ever knew I could be.
You Motherfuckers force me to make a LIAR out of you.

So, thank you, Motherfuckers.

Even if you don’t know you’re a Motherfucker.

I know it now. I hope... No. I'm sure others recognize your Motherfucked-ness, too.

Man, i loved this, so poignant and true!

Lovebabz said...

So are you saying you know my soon-to-be ex-husband too? LOL!

Because if this isn't about him, then there must be a twin running around acting just like him!

I raise my tequila shot to you! Onward and upward.

Only ponder whether you want to put up with it or not. I was going through this same thing that's why I wrote "Ain't No Way"

Stay calm...cuz you'll see the demise of the Motherfuckas!!!! I know I will. Good folks are protected and released from these necessary Motherfuckas right when we're supposed to be!

And what is up with all these breakups in September!!!

Truth Seeker said...

I like how you say that "they", the MFers made you stronger. That's true. They either destroy you or they make you stronger.
congrats! You realized they were deceiving you. Now, learn from your mistake. Pray for the ones that hurt you...because they need help, and, there will be more down the road.

WhozHe said...

You have greatly enlightened me on Motherfucked-ness. I had not until now been able to understand the benefits of those who have no good intentions for my well being. But like you, now I see how they have made me stronger as well. Thanks,

People come into your life for a reason, some I assume are there just to be goal blockers to test you.

I'm learning the true meaning of friendship and love due to this. Nice piece.-QH

Wow. I read this over several times. This spoke to me on levels to deep to convey here in this small space. That was some powerful shit. I LOVE IT!
We live & we learn... or atleast that's the way it's supposed to be.

Just discovered your blog, needless to say I'll be back.

A friend I gave everything to disappeared during one of the roughest patches of my life. It hurt more than I'll ever care to admit to anyone. The pain wasn't sharp. It was just a deep, dull, weakening thud. I still can't forgive her although we still talk. Love your books (LOOOOVVE! your books, seriously), love your blog and thanks for visiting mine.

It took this post to see just hoe many motherfuckers I had in my life. Funny thing is, I'm on a new "rid myself of the bullshit" plan. This just reinforced everything I thought. You gave shape to something new.

Great have a new fan.

The Lamb


Little Lamb, who made thee?

Dost thou know who made thee?

Gave thee life and bid thee feed

By the stream and o'er the mead:

Gave thee clothing of delight,

Softest clothing, woolly, bright;

Gave thee such a tender voice,

Making all the vales rejoice?

Little Lamb, who made thee?

Dost thou know who made thee?


Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,

He is called by thy name,

For He calls Himself a Lamb.

He is meek and He is mild;

He became a little child.

I a child, and thou a lamb,

We are called by His name.

Little Lamb, God bless thee!

Little Lamb, God bless thee!

"...Man is full of bones, heart and bullshit parts, and thus, man is bound to bullshit you, and disappoint you, and lie to you, and smile in your face and stab you in the back with such cunning and swift precision, you won’t even feel the blade coming..."

so poetic even when you're writing in prose; the mark of a true poet, superceding all form(s).

and so very, very true.
