    How long will we take
    before we see our fate
    before we come to grip
    as one too bond

    how long will da streets
    continue da beat of feat
    and control our minds

    how long will dis destructional
    mask cover our reality
    and capture us in da darkness
    of myth and bring us down
    to a mist of death

    how long will da mother's
    walk da dark street offering
    a treat for cash wit a nasty ***

    how long will da father's / bruthas
    continue to kill at any will to feel
    they belong when another one
    is gone
    death is real

    how long will da tears of broken heart
    cast da shadow of unhappy feelings
    and leave a bitter taste
    as da blood runs deep from da soul
    is their a mercyful just GOD
    a GOD to heal da pain self intake
    will their be a brighter day ahead
    how long can da stain of pain last

    what about da one at lost
    at the simply cost of life
    so many so soon so young
    death is real !

    how will one understand
    as life is hard but death so easy
    yet leaves a scared mark that last
    forever and da memories of good
    tymes dem to the facts of da
    memories of the last known sign
    and what was taken how do u feel

    what can be said
    where can u go
    how can u live
    when ya life has been changed
    and the pain becomes ya name
    da motion of ya waves at a stand
    still u feel so empty wit a void
    how long will dis continue
    til every soul is lifeless
    til every heart stop beating
    or is it the american way !
    to brand lead to the head
    da body
    is it a curse after all the long fight
    to become free to vote and gain
    respect only to use it in sin
    killing up family & friendz
    to win a star thats not yours
    capital punishment will be defined
    ((take both handz ))

    how will i go on from dis day
    the tyme da place that brought
    me down to my knees
    as part of me lay to rest in eternity
    a place of darkness
    no more air to breath
    how long
    how long
    as da tears continue it path
    I knoweth much love remains
    so it seem i'll be crying a long tyme
    I maybe confused:confused:
    i maybe mad:maddd:
    it's true i'm sad:(
    my :heart: broken in pieces
    i can't undo what's done
    yet i lost my first son
    to da hands of another blak man
    how long will it take before we see
    our life struggle
    i've preached many tymes to da street
    i've teached the right way many tymes
    to da street
    i've gave it my all yet no one hear me
    so now i'm in a silent tongue
    a lost mind
    a confused body
    a stolen life
    a heart going cold
    seem like my life at fold
    it's happenning ever so bold
    my faith is high
    my prayer to be heard
    surely i can't bare no more
    forth my shelter of comfort
    has yet took hold
    how long can i last
    how long i ask !???
    will i sit so sad
    how long i tell ya
    will dis be
    the hurt that's killing me
    is this da end of a poetic friend
    am i on my final flyte
    until my mind is right
    it's hard indeed as my
    heart continue to bleed
    my pen now dry
    and the paper all wet
    no more space
    missing his sweet gentle face
    memories is all i can embrace
    as i trace the tracks of my tears
    $R:( :cry: :(
