    This is an old piece.. I have some of my work on my hard drive.. and figured..'why not post it?'..
    here goes..


    Times change
    Young ones come up with game
    Many struggle to survive
    I too fight to stay alive
    Got people questioning me
    But they not getting the best thats in me
    Life, theres no limitations
    Look forward to graduation
    Theres no time for wastin
    Gotta get my mind right
    Gotta keep my game tight
    Gotta keep moving towards the bright beam of light
    Dreams of cauffins often
    Scare me rarely, barley
    I live care free
    Stop signs &Green lights
    Locs, Bloods, Gang fights
    Cops rushin the block saying "You're wrong, I'm white, I'm right!"
    Peep the hoes trynna seduce the hustlas
    Peep the n i g g a s thinking they G's but simply bustas
    Last night, no warrants, they still rushed us
    Why do we hate our own skin?
    We are all the same color within
    Til lil soljus in hoodyz
    Supply the rockheads with goodies
    N i g g a s get clapped up so quick
    Gettin stuck with a fifth to they lip
    Man this country is a trip
    Buildings get thrown down and were ready to rip up the gage
    Taking innocent non English speaking lives with bomb grenades
    Red, Blue, & White
    Stood for the struggle we had to fight
    And now stands for freedom, loyalty, and peace
    PEACE? What about the wars going on in the streets?
    Kids in Africa walking around with no shoes on their feet
    Kids in the PJ's with nothing to eat
    The children are the future, thats right
    But you look into a young cats eyes and all you see is the grime
    Just waiting to buck you so he can shine
    Take me and my people to our rightful home and we'll be fine
    The struggles here are so unessacary
    Take us home and no more fallen soldiers will be barried
    I'm wishin
    The vision
    Of my people ruling this land would emerge
    Let us educate ourselves and step to the beasts with courage
    We are all we have left in this world of unrightcheous queens & kings
    We live for Money, Drugs, Jewels, sex, and other lustful things
    Peace, to my people fighting for a cause
    Knowledge is your power, use it right
    And the world is yours

    See, you must have been taking much target practice cause this hit the bullseye. Not sure how old this is, but I'm glad you dug it up from the "archives". Well done.
