    wudup destee fam???!!!....missed yall...ya know how i do....on,off,on off..
    been a little busy...but LURK no forget...No no.....check it...


    on a dark dark night there was a hard hard fight
    a man in his early twenties battlin his demons cause there was plenty

    he took to tha gun,grabbed it,questioning his destiny
    pointing it towards tha dome he started to gather up every

    breath that it took as he looked down tha barrel
    tha smoke sucumbed tha lungs had him lookin like Joe Camel

    but tha worst was yet to come
    all tha years he reflected on...
    he's been stepped on,broken,choked up,
    yoked up,cause sonny was slept on....

    every moment with a thought was a moment that was fought
    you feel me..?...
    he couldnt think straight see straight he's late on payments
    you feel me....?...
    i'm talkin bout drug sales,
    he was in 2 deep.....
    livin a life of crime ,a thug tale,
    no hope ,no future to keep...

    he holds tha metal in his hands like it was sentimental...
    forgetin' tha whole plan just to focus on how detrimental

    things got while runnin a weed spot earning chedda
    learnin betta- new to tha game-sooped in tha brain from tha fame
    and people sayin' "he's hott!!!" .....mang....

    'listen with your eyes,'
    i told him to ,"peep tha scenery
    all tha grenery all tha money you receive
    will look you in tha face and just depize....
    by then it'll be too late //to justify ya fate..." YA FEEL ME?...

    But that was then and this is now
    this is how
    His life grabbed a hold a him....broke him in
    now he swollen again...

    all of tha 'what if's' and 'why me's'
    'what gives' and 'probablys'
    'i must live's whether or not someone tries to stop me's'
    just had him burnin more herb
    and more words-had him askin 'please define these'
    'cause if it goes on a little longer
    im a be lookin chi-nese...'

    a war with himself
    recognize tha sin
    we all in this thing for delf
    its up to you to lose or to win

    so with that said
    i stopped my daily routine to visit him in his 'cell'(his own,not jail)
    walked in tha door,i heard "BOOM!!!" (A gun shot)
    dayum!!!!!
    excuse me officer but i gots a story to tell............................................................



    peace yall....get at me....1
