    not many can relate to the things i've witnessed--
    ever seen ya best friend get shot...
    52 times--?

    ever carry a gun down the street--
    because you thought you might be next?

    ever kiss your mother and think--
    "this is the last time she'll see me alive..."

    some people have--
    a life too often exemplified and perpetuated--
    perpetrated to the point that one can't tell the real from the fake...

    and i love life--
    but some people reading the asphalt where i live--
    don't see its purpose--

    huggin the block for cash--
    24-7/365/52 weeks out the year--
    this asphalt ain't no joke--

    believe me...

    for stamping this prose with their approval.

    fo'sho
