    I'm a millionaire *****
    stuck on a hundred dollars
    the voice of a generation
    too tired to even holla
    my life aint saying nothing
    so why should i even bother
    my soul needs motivation
    'cause times is gett'n harder

    my daughter she gotta eat
    she needs shoes upon her feet
    so i'm posted up in these streets
    trying to make my her ends meet
    too cold to feel the heat
    so i chill on the conkrete
    won't suffer no more defeat
    got find me some relief

    the demons they wanna play
    police got me afraid
    the pain don't go away
    it just carries from day to day
    i got down on my knees to pray
    but could barely stay awake

    Father i know i'm wrong
    but i'm doing it on my own
    the winds are raging strong
    i'm out here all alone
    can't ask for no help i'm grown
    won't complain just carry on

    this is my life and my grind
    the sun will soon shine
    my motivation is now divine
    'cause I left my cares behind
    progression it takes time
    so i've got to keep tryin'
    if i'm ever to get mine
    these wings were made for flyin

    the sky is my limit
    this life i'm gone live it
    my all i'm gone give it
    my soul has been replenished
    this poem is not finished

    I hope that yl all read part II.
    Thanks for the love!!!

    this poem is not a sobb story
    the moral is to inform people
    that there are men out here
    Grind'n
    men about more than cars and clothes
    men still in the struggle
