    Ghetto heaven
    is* there such a thing?
    Will we ever return
    to the Kings and Queens
    that we used to be?

    There is no so much hell
    where we live and dwell
    It's as if there was a spell
    cast upon us so that we
    continuously struggle
    and self-destruct
    We are the product of
    a poison that existed
    before we got her
    Taken from our native land
    and forced to work for a
    wretched kind of man

    It is up to us to realize
    the reality behind the
    divine plan
    and demand from
    ourselves a ghetto heaven

    A ghetto heaven consists
    of hope, gun-less streets,
    and urban air minus the
    stench of crack smoke

    A ghetto heaven breeds
    beautiful black boys who
    never experience father-less
    families and discrimination,
    police brutality and second
    rate public education, the fate
    of the prison population, and
    elimination

    A ghetto heaven gives birth to
    pretty Nubian girls who are
    protected and nurtured by the world

    Who are taught to not accept
    the chauvinism of power
    hungry men

    Who do not experience the
    lust-filled violations done
    unto their precious skin

    Who are not subject to
    degrading messages and
    images imposed upon them
    in rap songs and videos by media
    corporations and their lost male kin

    We need a ghetto heaven to
    wake up our sisteren and brethren
    We deserve lives of peace and
    progression
    In our hoods there is increasing
    poverty, starvation and destructive
    aggression
    When will we ever experience
    collective happiness?
    When will we ever experience
    a collective bliss?
    When will we ever live in a
    ghetto heaven?

    The world is a ghetto, the devil's in the details. Thanks for this, prayers like yours are heard throughout heaven.
