    Ain’t nobody worrying

    He sleeps on benches,
    Subway cars and train station
    Often found under
    A few pieces of newspaper
    Under cardboard boxes
    Where he rest in his slumber

    But ain’t nobody worrying

    He eats food out of trash bags,
    Dumpsters and **** thrown on the street
    His stomach curdles
    Filled with air
    Cause there are days
    When he can’t eat

    But ain’t nobody worrying

    He often gets treated like ****,
    Laughed up on, frond up on
    And the masses
    Look at him with discuss
    Treating him like a outcast
    Never giving him a chance to live

    But ain’t nobody worrying

    Then she came round the block
    Selling her *** for just 20 bucks
    Sucking **** just to survive
    No one realizes she got kids at home
    Who starve if momma
    Don’t go out and ***

    But ain’t nobody worrying

    She started smoking dope
    Then moved to smoking crack
    And finally her blood cells
    Fen for a siring filled with Heroin
    She became a junky cause
    Her family just didn’t give a ****

    But ain’t nobody worrying

    Her moms didn’t know that pops
    Made love to her like he did to moms
    Sliding his manhood inside of her
    Like she was a woman of lust
    But realize she was only a little girl
    Of the tender age of only 4

    But ain’t nobody worrying

    Now she is 26 turning tricks
    On the side smoking that ****
    A victim of rape and child abuse
    And her pops moved on
    To her younger sister
    This cycle is still not broken

    But ain’t nobody worrying

    He was another misfortune on the street
    At a young age pops use to beat him
    Moms stood there in fear
    That pops was gonna kill him
    But she did nothing
    She just stood there crying

    But ain’t nobody worrying

    He took a gun loaded it
    And began to run
    Found himself a empty space
    And with the silence
    The gun went off
    He committed suicide

    But ain’t nobody worrying

    Cause we in America
    Just don’t care.
    We don’t see the evil
    That displays others hardship
    Why he do that, why she selling
    Her ***, why is she on drugs,
    Why did he committee suicide

    The answer is cause ain’t nobody worrying…..

    Your piece makes awareness up close and personal--this was awesome. Inspired me to flow with it...hope you don't mind...


    Disasters already erupting
    forming an endless cycle
    Think problems don't fester?
    Just look at Michael
    Can't say I know for sure,
    just call it intuition
    But do ya really think he looks like
    a light bulb because of a skin condition?
    And that's merely skimming the surface
    there's so much chaos going on inside
    Feeling forced to do the unthinkable
    leaving our pride by the wayside
    Broken, worried, and scared
    thrown into adulthood
    unprepared...
    Most saunter to greet the grim reaper
    but too many appear to be hurrying
    but who gives a ****
    ain't nobody worrying...

    Ain't nobody worrying
    about the condition
    all the poverty i mention
    how the struggle is long
    and the brother's unbond
    but nobody worrying
    how homeless sleep
    and what these people eat
    and what about the life
    we now see nobody worrying
    i guess just me.

    aint nobody worrying bout if i ever make it pass this screen
    aint nobody worrying bout if ever make it on the scene
    many times that i cried in the darkness without a helping hand to guide
    but aint nobody worrying
    or the time when i fell short cause my lights were cut off in the middle of the dead summer
    but aint nobody worrying
    or when i try to seek child support for the deadbeats dads the system seem to just misplace the files
    but aint nobody worrying
    or why is it that when i want to put on something nice its always once a year income tax time
    but aint nobody worrying
    or tell me why my babies have to grow up in this god forsaken country
    the land of the free
    maybe
    if your upperclassman
    but aint nobody worrying
    or why were concern with foreign affairs that people on our own soil is dying. the real war is here not in where i wont mention
    we wont answers and we want them now
    but aint nobody worrrying
    arent we tired of settling for less hell even the people with good education are being downsized
    to us common folks dont think i didnt noticed
    but um aint nobody worrying
    or is it me or is that the time has come when we need to stop walking around with blinders
    as the head jockey guides us around like animals
    but ya'll dont hear me tho cause aint nobody worrying
    whether the sun will shine again
    or will the wind cool us down when were hot
    or when the water is there to replenish us when were dehydrated
    or when we have the nights to rush in so that we can get the needed rest
    or what if our Heavenly Father just decided to end it all we all end up in hell
    but I know aint nobody worrying
    because your too busy to care at all
    yep just like us selfish not considering ones lest fortunate
    yes turn ya backs sista and brotha's
    if i smoke crack thats right my brotha sell it to me some more so i can keep living a destructive life
    i i broke into your house thats right the pawn shop aint gonna do nothing but keep supplying me
    cause he know i robbed to keep him in business
    oh yeah if i killed ya thanks mr. for selling me that gun to blow somebody head off and im a convicted felon
    hey keep feeding me and i'll give you all something to think about
    because after all who's gives a [email protected]

    what i say
    or even if i pray
    because aint nobody on this earth is worrying about this!!!!!!!!!

    Life inspired me. Grrowing up in an impovished condition, seeing people on the street while growing up in NY.
