    They say life is but a dream,
    But I for one do not believe
    Because sometimes, sh1t is real.

    From American troops in Iraq killed,
    To 8 year olds in America making drug deals,
    To Ethiopians-weeks without a meal,
    To little girls on birth control pills,
    To blind nights, because daddy couldn't pay the light bill-
    Sh1t is real.

    There are 10 year old prostitutes in the Philippines.
    I see public school students who can barely read.
    I've experienced racism; it's still alive no matter what it seems.
    Teen anorexics, bulimics, determined to be lean.
    Crack fiends killing families over TV's.
    Please, this ain't a dream-
    Sh1t is real.

    Abusive domestic relationships,
    Terrorist's with their government's sponsorship,
    Little boys, lighting' up, black lips,
    Low life expectancy in project tenements,
    Minimum wage, no benefits,
    6 year olds maimed making shoes and outfits,
    3rd world rebellions, stray shots, children hit,
    Gang war, drive by, same sh1t,
    Gang rape, molestation, lost of innocence,
    Life isn't a dream- no, wouldn't make sense
    Since-
    Sh1t is so real.
