    Is This what we've become?

    bloods, gangstas , crips, ppl with guns

    Drug dedalers, stealers, cold hearted killaz

    Is this what we've become?

    Wannabe rappers , singers, dancers & such

    movin from ghetto to ghetto

    Why do we let ourselves amount to so little when we could be so much?

    All about the bling bling & ching ching never about tha simple things

    Is this what we've become?

    Materialistic instead of Realistic

    Hustlers instead of mentors, educators

    Is this what we've become?

    From wanting to learn to refusing it

    Not cherishing life jsut abusing it

    Is this what we have done?

    Killers against our own kind...?

    Have we honestly become that blind?

    So selfish, all about our selves that instead of being a good semeritan we refuse to give others help

    Is this what we've become?

    Against being reunited?

    All about being divided?

    Is this what we've become?

    As we keep dividing, are we colliding into our own self destuction?

    Is this what we've done?

    Is this what we've bccome?

    If so I don't want none!!!

    Food for thought, definitely. I hope this not what most of us have become. Very strong piece here.

    Feeling this- wanna say that NO, this ain't wat 'WE'VE' become- cause the rest of us cannot be defined by that crowd- we just gotta keep brightening whatever corner we in and the darkness will flee. Thanks for the questions.

    JAH Love is ONE.
