    heartbreaking yet

    all too real...

    Here I go getting PERSONAL AGAIN but OH WELL...

    this has touched me personally. my uncle who's serving a life sentence (was set up by his older brother) is a survivor of street life. he was a hustler, womanizer etc, etc he was shot at least 7 times in the back over 5 years ago. It's a blessing he's alive today.

    It's true that people really don't notice or 'choose to notuce what happens in the streets until it hits home.

    just felt like sharing:(

    "...we scared to stay alive"
    brother your depth has summed up despair and crazy, silly *** behavior in the hood....that line right there is what So'jas are made of....REALITY (that's all we want)

    word bond

    blak
    Your brother in
    spirit and struggle
