    **** i got a headache,
    i dont know how much more of this stupid shi* i can take,
    my black people throwin their lives away everyday,
    wat the fu*k man, im tired.....
    don't know what else to say.
    tell me something....
    why we gotta act this way?

    shootin up each others blocks,
    killing our own kind,
    by sellin em rocs,
    and u wonder why your hood is hot.

    too busy tryna be cool,
    kids too **** grown,
    don't even wanna go to school,
    boppin their heads to every hip hop joint,
    but can't even read a book
    now how dat look?

    parents cant say shi*,
    because dey done did the same shi*,
    and till dis day still doin the same shi*,

    tylenol aint strong enough,
    asprin don't last long enough,
    guess i gotta just suck it up,
    cuz my people actin like they aint strong enough.

    my black people goin blind,
    cant seem to find their right minds,
    hate the fact of giving up on my own kind,
    but im tired!!!!

    yall aint givin a **** so why should i?
    wastin my time tryna change the negativity
    thats goin on in yall lives,
    i hurt everytime one of my brothas or sistas die,
    but i aint even gunna take the time out to cry,
    you know why.........?

    because i done poured my heart out a million times,
    and yall still choose to sell your souls,
    and commit crimes!!!!

    When things seem hopeless we all feel like giving up, that's true. But if our words and actions can change the life of even one, then it's worth it. I know, makes ya wanna holla!

    Tell it man, but keep yo head up too. It may seem like its not getting better at times but the little strives to make a change do add up! Remember 100 pennies eventually make a dollar and one voice eventaully makes a stand.
