    Sometimes we don't understand our own writing til way later

    I had written the below (my dad was on crack)

    they were having a "rap it up rhode island contest"

    say no to drugs event

    and at this time Stop the Violence was my favorite track- (IT'S BOUT 88-89 ISH)



    it's the big lie takin ova workin citizens
    people start to use drugsas what we call a medicine
    to take away pressure to take away stress
    but all it gets u into is a bigger bigger mess

    drugs is the beginning to the end of ur life
    using them is just like stabbin urself with a knife

    am i wrong or right u tell me
    it's either drugs or ur life so what will it be

    if u say drugs u r just plain ignorant
    but if u say ur life u r just plain intelligent

    cause seein is beleivin and i've seen the effects before
    seeing is beleivin and i don't want to explore

    cause i want to get somewhere
    and that's a high expectation

    so i will say no to drugs
    without no hesitation

    cause they fry ur brain
    they make u go insane
    and after a while u lose everything

    u lose ur friends because u start to use them
    and no one looks up to u because u abuse them

    so if u have a problem
    no matter who it is
    or what it was
    just remember that the answer is not drugs

    and do not think that can not get addicted
    cause no one knows no one can predict it

    except the good lord who lives up high

    who gave us all enough sense to say no to drugs
    the big big lie

    cocaine, marijuana, freebase and crack, pcp, uppers, downers they all r wack

    but people r sellin it
    people r buyin it
    people r dyin over it
    and other peoples' tryin it

    let's stop this maddness this insanity
    just say no to drugs and that's a victory


    I NEVER ACTUALLY GOT AROUND TO ENTERING
    BUT I'M THANKFUL
    SO SO THANKFUL

    FOR MY SELF, MY HIGHER SELF!
