    At last I stand,
    a vision before me that stain my eyes,
    you may ask in reply,
    why rage infect my mind,
    if you want to know I will tell,
    the visions of distruction I see so well,
    drugs being fed from young to old,
    homless people standing out in the cold,
    queens selling their soul for possessions or a high,
    brothers wanting to trade my wallet for my life,
    kids made to think that cheeting is ok,
    WHO IN THE HELL ORDAINED THUG LIFE IS THE ONLY WAY!!
    Santa clause being worshiped instead of CHRIST,
    society telling me how to live my life,
    why care about the poor on a holiday,
    then turn your back on any other day,
    the west side of town got crime on the streets,
    while the north side of town got all the officers on the beat...........WHAT?!!!.......
    We must improve ourselves and leave it all in the past,
    so we can truely shout FREE AT LAST,
    then all we've seen will seem contrary,
    let's get rid of all the bad BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY,
    cause we are KINGS and QUEENS
    so lets live our lives,
    BE STRONG,
    LIVE RIGHT,
    AND TOGETHER
    WE WILL STRIVE!!!!

    (MUCH LOVE!!!)
