    It's So hard to make a honest dollar on the scale of a hour
    Working that 9-5 living between rush hours shower

    Heck even better yet I respect the 11-7 and the 12-12
    Playtimes gone and your social life's on the shelf

    working 2 gig's like you pulling 2 Bid's
    Is this what u expected as your education slid?
    Down the ladder of sucess you feel the every day stress
    Pulling your energy and stripping at your youth
    breathing in this life hurts like the cold does a chiped tooth
    all this while trying to get your piece of the pie
    Praying to wake up one day and find it's all a lie
    and you ain't even tasted a sample trial,
    hell your not eminem so u never made it off 8 mile!

    Tonya has 3 kids and lives in a neighborhood of war and crime
    her childrens fathers dont come around dont support or give time
    she work a $6.55 an hour not nearly enought to take care of herself
    welfare says she makes 2 much money so they give her any help.
    Now she's facing a lay off because bush's war won't ever payoff
    It's so hard for a single mother with no help from the other sorry @zz brother!
    he was 2 busy being the ghetto lover living off his other baby mother!

    Mike goes to school where books are a joke and teachers are the laughter
    a young man of dreams with an education he's after
    he has a better chance of having a gun erase all of his knowledge
    that entering into and community college
    So he is recruted by the army and feed the GI Bill line
    But Bush has other plans 4 him oh it's the war on Iraq time.
    he goes and thinks he has it made in the shade
    free room free board and his education is paid?
    so he signs the paper and serves his country within a prisioner of war caper
    found guilty he is discharged in dishonor and his education is not paid because of the waiver.

    Michelle's in love and her job is secure so life's real cool
    she made it out the hood and out of medical school
    Graduated top of her class with her PHD
    meet her fiancee in the medical field felt like destiny
    But she has been missing time from work alot theese days
    and she walks with a limp or wears alot of shades
    See her hubby to be beats her like a fool
    he was brought up thinking a woman is his property, his toy, his tool.
    He kicked her in the back and she told her friends she fell down the steps
    she has a lunp in her brest because he punched her in the chest
    she eats every line of his "Baby I will never do it again"
    He feeds her blow after blow like she had a prize fighters chin.

    It's So Hard to live life and make it day by day
    listen and learn as the story's play

    See Tonya lost her $6.55 but found Rodney who gave her the love n support
    her childrens father went to jail for non support.
    She went to school and recieved her certificate for an IT tech
    She has a better job and her kids have a momma and a step dad they love and respect.

    Mike was Discharged and felt down and out but a class action suit turned his GI bill in a positive rout
    65G's and a second chance tool, Now mike's doing big things and returned to school.

    Michelle made it out of her relationship she is no longer in pain
    She made it out of a almost bad marrage and a cursed last name
    See she was abused for the last time and it will never happen again
    she wont have to lie to herself her family or friend
    But her fiancee was not so lucky he was aressted and is doing time
    he will pay the price for his shameful crime
    He Killed michelle when he smashed her head with a boot
    I guess it's to hard to make it out of all things and that's the truth. :teach:
