    :( This aint sounded like a love song….
    Just pace myself
    Get into the groove…

    Momma why you cry……
    Son let me tell ya something……
    Of why I cry……

    Why I cry…
    Looking around seenin
    R young with
    No where to turn….

    Gigi have a baby
    She only 14 yrs old…
    Momma didn’t care
    And dude is 33 and married…
    Why I cry…..

    Why I cry
    Tears runnin
    Cant seem to make them stop…
    Brain’s boy just got shot….
    Dayum they wasn’t even for him…
    Another lost life in the day
    Of livin in the hood…
    Why I cry…

    Why I cry….
    Shalia, don’t have
    A babysitter
    Left her baby all alone..
    Y she went to school…
    No family
    Not even a friend
    Raised his self…
    Now he on
    South street
    Slang drugs….
    Why I cry….

    Why I cry….
    Jessie wants to be
    A Jessica
    And daddy threw him out…
    Shredded tears
    and took his life…
    Why I cry….

    Why I cry….
    It ust to take a family to
    Raise a child…
    One job momma stay home
    Married for all the right reasons…
    Now its married
    Just to get that baby
    His last name…
    Why I cry…

    But hell
    The last time I check…
    It took a boy
    to become a man
    to make a baby
    A real man to raise
    His child….
    Boy oh boy…
    That’s all you truly is…
    You just donate
    Your genes….
    Why I cry…..

    I rather cry
    That day ya walk down
    the graduation line
    And they call your name….
    Taken one step up
    To be the first to go to college…
    Taken another step
    In being who you are…
    Go one more and be that one that shine…


    A black man or woman with knowledge is all I cry for…
    See this is our world….
    We as whole can turn it around…
    But greed
    Hatred
    Pride
    No respect
    Get us no where…
    I took a stand
    In groomin my young man
    I took a step
    Teachin my daughter
    To stand up for what she believe in
    This is a man’s world yet
    Your thoughts do count…..

    Momma don’t cry….
    Pray that ever thing be ok…

    I pray every night
    That a change will come
    We grow together in unity…
    I cry
    I cry….
    One day it will be all alright…
    Why I cry

    Mzblkangel, love the message in this piece...
    the state of the black community is very disturbing
    but if each of us as individuals, make changes to
    improve, as a whole, eventually the circle will
    be complete....but it's up to each of us....

    the entire village...individually...........very conscious
