    Everything was all good, livin in my neighborhood, with da black brothas, da black sistas, and da black mothas, who try to survive out in these streetz, livin dat life don't seem easy, bein homeless without no food 2 eat, little kids cryin, motha's dyin,how u gonna go on thru society, u have to keep ya priorities straight, u have to know what direction u're goin, when i walk down da block, i see pain, no one to help ya, but yaself, da ones who wanna help ya, step out to ya, they know what ya goin thru, life thru da valley of darkness, it's a killing, 2 feel how someone else tryin to make it, is feeling, a sad journey down da road, nowhere 2 go, who u gonna call, i feel da pain, i feel da stress, nothin less, tho life is a blessing, and even tho whats goin on in dey head, it's troublin to see a ***** not understand da facts about life, and i stand here and wonda why, i kneel down and i pray 2 god, why live da hard life.

    You've expressed very well the pain...the hurt...of growing up these times...in these conditions.
