    That's just how sh1t is.
    Logic like how a cocaine addict mother has crack kids

    This is how sh1t goes...
    Ni*gas's got 22's and gold, living in the projects tho'

    See how this sh1t looks?
    When you can dribble a ball better than you can read a book

    But ain't any of this sh1t new.
    Like Single welfare mothers, age fourteen with not 1 kid- but two

    This is how sh1t has been.
    Our young continue to idolize those who sin

    Aw sh1t, we can't run.
    It's almost like H.I.V. is infecting us, one by one

    Is there anything we can do?
    Sh1t-I'm just a kid, I was asking you

    Wannabe, our people need to be educated, employed,
    daughters instructed on sex and the consequesnces of such actions. Our sons need to understand that drugs are a trap to enslave their minds as well as their souls and it ain't cool. Fathers need to be Fathers helping these young men to become who will
    become who they are suppose to be respectful of self and others. Excellent Write.

    Yeah... there's a lot we can do, as there is so much that needs to be done. So, for me I start with those in my circle, setting examples, communicating effectively...not just by what I say, but also by what I do.

    Very thought provoking.. thanks for sharing
