    I see you over there living life too fast too furious
    Delving into everything that makes you a little curious
    But I'm warning you brother stop living like you're invincible,
    And start living your life like you've got some kind of principle
    No matter what you think everyone has got a Achilles's heel
    Their very own kryponite that will make them have to yeild
    Believe it or not brother, we were all made from mere dust
    Born to die is not a suggestion for us but it's a true must
    Gone with the wind in the mere twinkling of an eye
    Shall be the overwhelming fate for both you and I
    But your end days depends on how you operate
    And if you live by the sword that will be your fate
    I ain't advocating betraying the streets that raised you
    But I think that you given them more than their just due
    At some point in time you have to come out the chaos
    And venture into the new phase that we all must cross
    Life in the streets made us all feel a sense of immortality
    As if we could do anything without any chance of a fatality
    But how many more tears must we shed as we bury our kin
    This lifestyle is not part of anyone's permanent grand design
    And I know that the streets taught us that real men don't retreat
    But walking away this time shall be a sign of growth instead of defeat
    So come on let's grow together into something more than these streets

    MAGNIFICENT! :toast:

    Sister ASP, you have such a talent for inspiring and encouraging poetry!

    I so thoroughly enjoyed reading this!

    This kind of poetry allows one to see him/herself as well as others in it.

    That's some good teachin' right here!
