    This is 4 the people out there, everywhere, it aint a black thing, it aint no white thing, its a world thing! SO LISTEN UP!

    Errbody need 2 wrap it up
    we gotta save our society
    peoples is dyin'
    'cause we aint tryin'
    babys born errday to suffer
    'cause some brother aint like how it feel
    'cause some sistah, tryna be down,
    was too scared 2 be real

    I repeat again my people, WE need 2 wrap it up
    too many teens havin babys
    they might listen 2 these words and think im crazy
    but it be them locked in the system on that state welfare
    can barely finish school
    'cause its their child they have 2 care

    I SCREAM IT OUT LOUD, WE need 2 wrap it up
    we got 2 much 2 live for
    dont go and give it up
    if We could just take that extra step
    life could be so simple
    instead WE gotta be ignant and dumb
    use ya mind
    keep it tight
    and dont give it up just 2 anyone
    take heed to these words
    'cause not I but they be's the truth
    if you dont
    not only you but the world will hurt too


    A lil somethin' a put 2gether in the midst of all this madness
    I'm only 17 but I gotta live in this world too.

    Seems like a simple message, but many seem to still forget, so it bears repeating, and I like the way you laid this down. Welcome to destee. Write some more for us to read.
