    God why is my world the way it is
    Why are so many of my sistahs droppin' school
    To have some undeserving man's kids
    We choose to live this way and I don't understand why
    We live and die by the gun with no DIGNITY
    We watch children die and continue on our way as if it's all O.K.

    I see my people and they are coruupt by what I can not say
    For I do not know what it is that makes us take
    the poison of drugs and alcohol to our lips
    Blood drips from the heart of a dying nation and the whole while
    The rest of the world sits impatient to rob our minds and steal
    ours souls
    Everybody wants to be black because BLACK IS BOLD
    They can take away form us and leave the story untold

    Yes something is most definetely wrong but I don't mind because I can still sing my song
    It is my gift to the world
    To make the path clear for these little boys and girls
    I grow so they can grow because
    Momma said " somebody is always watching you"
    I see the world is corrupt but I understand that
    even though it is mostly corrupt
    As long as I have the desire to be me and nothjing else
    The spirit of corruption has not completed itd task
    Because it does not own me

    For I am not the beginning of something new in this world
    I am the new evolution of things to come and the future is
    A THING OF BEAUTY BECAUSE i AM A PART OF IT


    special thanks to Rich, 1poetsought,watzinaname, and all the othergreat poets who inspired me to come this far in my poetic growth.
    I love all of you.
