    I need a plan to make it in this game
    To walk thru life with a remembered name
    Not by what I say, but how I act
    I need people to understand me w/0 needin to ask
    I need a friend who will get attached to me and not what got me on track
    I need to stay focused and not let ignorance distract me
    I need to be careful and not let trouble attract me
    I need to enjoy life and take it like I'm bein rewarded
    I need to reach for my dreams and make it a target

    I need to be grateful cuz I've been blessed
    I need to keep strivin to be the best
    And make it thru my tests
    I need to watch my back
    For those sneaky attacks
    I need to look out 4 those kats
    That have been here since my past

    I need to set a standard 4 certain people I let in
    Cuz if I don't then their bound to start testin'
    MY intelligence
