    i take a look back,at the sins of my father
    when i use to cry at night,like 'why i gotta live in this horror???!!'...
    mama hasnt slept in days,
    she's been up all night.....
    dealin with his stressful wayz,
    gettin drunk all night...
    I use to hold my family down,
    cook and clean...
    go ahead and say sumthin stupid,
    not only my look is mean...
    i keep the tool ,but im a good man,
    so im puttin it down....
    no more cookin now, i make music,
    lookin at how,hooks is green$$......
    im a man with pride standin in line for my peice of the pie....
    its been a long time comin,
    from being just a Rook to King...
    skinny,but theres a certain weight that you see,
    burden it be,
    i carry on my back
    from wonderin if it was worth it for me...
    to walk away with the Hope that tha days'll get brighter..
    i have a gorgoeus daughter now,
    and she's at that same age that i was..
    i cant slip up,
    wet floor runnin
    gotta get up.....and take tha
    best for nothin.....make
    less into sumthin........

    cause as i take a look back
    i see that this quest i took strugglin,
    will get me to where im at ,
    and thats a fact.......The Book's Complete...........

    no more rainy days
    no more fighting my brother
    no more taking pay
    from a helpful *** neighbor
    being a sucker..
    i thank tha Lord for you's
    all that helped me thru
    Aunt Linda....Uncle James...
    i write these songs for you..
    Thru my darkest nights
    all a my hardest fights
    i held my pride down,
    never sacrificed for spite...
    i got my gaurd up,
    got charred up,hearts been scarred up,
    but now everything is all right,
    thanx to yous.............................................. ;)
