    • What’s happening to this world, so much bad change
    • Everyone wants attention, everyone wants to claim
    • The best of the best and forget about what’s inside
    • People fighting over oil, killing young lives
    • We still got slavery today, it’s tattooed to our minds
    • Why you think we don’t see nothing wrong with black on black crimes
    • The bloods and the crips, don’t play any games
    • And marriage is now allowed, for lesbians and gays
    • Grown looking girls, that are only 12
    • Chasing grown men, just for there wealth
    • Aids is spreading so fast, we don’t know who to trust
    • No ones falling in love, everyone into lust
    • Bush sits there in his chair like he really cares
    • It aint his people dying, he make 500,000 a year
    • People in Haiti don’t have any rules
    • And in many parts in Africa, no one has food
    • Cops are the good guys, but they kill as they please
    • Who knows how many of them could be crooked police
    • There are now more prisons then schools, in some areas
    • Who’s praying to God, so that he may carry us
    • Everyday you hear of young boys getting molested
    • People make love before marriage, no one getting tested
    • No one cares anymore, but in your minds your crying
    • I mean C’mon aint it get rich or die trying
    • Planes running through buildings, hurricanes back to back
    • People dying of strokes and heart attacks
    • Leaders don’t care, Kerry dropped out the race
    • Daughter wearing dresses, where no ones looking at her face
    • People can’t even trust a follower of god
    • Cause the good in this world is fixed on denial
    • The world is getting worse, every singe day
    That why I wrote this poem, as a tribute to change
