    Ask me
    Just ask me
    if being "black" has something to do with my personality
    ask me
    Just ask me
    if i like feeling like i've slipped into a lifestyle
    that no one returns from the same
    more than late night parties and gettin bent on the brain
    wyle
    shorty why yo man's think he can pull me over have me walkin
    a single file
    i sat in cells for mere seconds
    developin plans of freedom from single files
    how
    ask me
    how do i know so many unfamiliar sections of "they" weapons
    ask me
    why do i feel incarcerated unjustly
    no walls, no cuffed weights
    unseen like P.O.W.
    ask me
    why the white man school label me gifted from the get go
    but the ghetto kid they never did get to know
    so emotional
    the pains were so deep after a year
    i felt my life letting me go...
    ask me
    is imagination false
    how come the road to success is a toss up
    even when you do er'ything within yo means
    to act and react how you was brought up
    so many situations can get you caught up
    ask me
    would you give your flesh for a martyr
    commit your being you hold to overcome a.......
    ....hypocrisy?, monopoly?

    man, i must be damned
    my mans and them still standing
    and you can't bring no weight down on me
    i churn up developments
    during a digested state
    whut "i(I)" ate
    took what i taught
    leaned into learning
    physically detached
    don't blame lost love on whodunnit
    or who i was doin it with
    how to even peep a union
    in a unit destitute as deep as the darkest deserts
    i stay doin callestenics
    i'm comin for you, son
    the b.s. is in the past
    ask me
    what i wunt?
    damnme muddaph^KKKin freedom
    so many soldiers walk beside me
    The LOST
    stampeded by society
    no need for tears
    keep marchin
    no shy7 i'm devastated by military movements
    movies mimicry of the far cries
    that go on honestly behind the scenes
    ask me
    senoree
    ask me
    g
    what's the purpose of being friendly..?
