    I walk these streets
    And I watch my peeps
    Standing on the street corners across from the ones with nothing to eat
    They pocketing fifty dollars an hour
    And they NEVER even give the poor a dollar
    Which stand less than fifty feet
    I remember when that was ME

    I watch these crack feign walk five blocks
    And I can silently hear their hearts stop
    They only think of their next hit.... I think in my mind is that's my pop's?

    No brotherly love, no sisterly love
    We don't have no unity cause money is all the world is built of
    They got our women thinking ******* ballers will get them dollars and mansions
    And our men thinkin drugs and gaks enhance him
    For a while I believed em'
    It was a cycle
    To give a dollar was to loose a dollar
    And if a brother didn't have a dollar then it was a NO hollar

    Politics is corrupted
    They making the laws but they the same ones that break it
    It's because of them we don't have money to put in the schools for our kids future
    They happy to see a thug kill a thug, they silently wish it was YOU
    And fukk Pookie and they crew
    In this world you only look out for yourself, ain't nobody lookin out for you
    It's a tragedy
    But it's REALITY
    And in my eyes its so REAL to me

    Sometimes it makes you cry to see death in a kids eyes
    You see it coming but you can't stop it when he turns to thugs instead of books so yo heart cries
    Why?
    Cause EASY money is better than hard money
    Why wait eighteen years when at ten money is plenty
    So lil' boys walk strapped and kills his first boy by the time he's twenty
    Retaliation is hectic
    and down right deadly
    DEATH is destined for he
    Or the pen if he's LUCKY

    But you know what has me mad though.....these girls
    They twelve and producing MORE girls
    It was abnormal but now it seems NORMAL in my world
    They think they grown way before ten
    Developed by unenlightened
    By twelve they taking semen
    Dropping out of school and by twenty five they complaining why they can't find the RIGHT men
    Hold up man.....don't stop me now the truth leaks from me
    The reason you can't find the right man is because you too fast
    Why make you a house wife when everyone's had THAT @ss
    It's like a blunt puff puff pass
    You got a gift but the gift is sad

    And the preacher leading everybody the wrong way
    He preaching **** but don't do nothing that he say
    His daughter fukkin everything from Stacy to Harry
    And his own motherfukkin son is gay
    It's OK
    That's what my mama always say
    But I can't help by cry cause **** ain't supposed to be this way
    We all naive
    Including ME
    I ain't perfect
    And no where near terrific
    Nothing I do is secret
    but the difference between me and most of them is I refuse to go down in defeat!!!!

    Everyone has a light inside of them, even those street ballers. Difference is, yours is shining in a positive way. This read like a sermon from the mount. Your words are potent poetess...I always look forward to reading you.
