    MY MESSAGE

    There is a promise that I gave to the Lord
    That in all that I do, his message will be my sword

    So no I won’t hurt my enemies
    I’ll fight back with love verbs
    And I won’t retaliate with my fists
    Imma sit down and write words

    Spiritual words
    Words that some people ain’t ready to hear
    But they gon’ be ready to read it
    As I’m prepared to give it
    By God’s light
    To my fight
    Someone will take it
    And know that it’s right
    Cause other things ain’t right
    And they just got to change
    I mean.
    Not everything should stay the same.
    I start to get deranged
    When I’m thinking about life
    My life
    My brother’s life
    Everybody’s life
    I used to try and think of ways to make my everything alright
    So that everything I thought of was right
    And then it hit me
    When everyone’s happy
    I’ll have relief
    When everyone gets it together
    There’ll be joy waiting
    And it ain’t a secret to get to that place
    And there ain’t nobody else keeping us from getting there
    But ourselves
    And each other.
    I know I ain’t the only one who can dare
    To think outside the box
    outside of my desires
    there are much better things for me to aspire
    like helping your mind
    and my mind get brighter
    Don’t you know that’s why they call me the prizefighter?
    You see, the prize is right before our eyes
    And the gift won’t be opened
    Until we all realize
    It ain’t about having the biggest company
    It ain’t about getting all that money
    Because at the end of the day
    You and me
    Will be left with nothing
    But to see
    All our mistakes
    And no mistake is color based
    And will we fix them?
    That’s the problem
    We don’t all agree on what we did right
    Or wrong
    We’re too separated
    People will rather wait till the day
    When they’ll be forced to think a better way
    But that don’t mean your hate towards me is OK
    It makes matters worse
    Because you think you are better
    So there will always be this ruthless vendetta
    If you hear my words
    You would know my meaning
    And if you listen
    You will understand
    That right now the world needs peace profusely
    So your cooperation is on demand
    I hope you all will take what im writing
    For consideration to stopping the fighting
    Cause this is the message
    I was sent here to give
    And I will spread this message
    For as long as I live.
