    My Thoughts

    What am I livin' for
    Nickels and dimes for these verses
    I know only GOD is perfect
    But dang . . .
    This life aint worth it
    Influenced by the project pastors
    Spitten heed to the streets
    A mind is a terrible thing to waste
    But I think to fast for my feet
    Plus the game dont wait
    I never had to snatch purses
    But we all got our struggles
    Mine are just underneath the surface
    A life of crime was never mines
    But stress aint no stranger
    They say the smarter you are
    The more your aware of danger
    But is that really true
    Cause I've been locked up and locked down
    So don't tell me I got it easy
    My life is harder than it sounds
    Plus I got the weight of the world on my shoulders
    Cause I'm black
    So Im considered low class
    Poverty is our friendly neighbor
    We're always first to go last
    & you could laugh
    And I could laugh too
    But aint nothin' funny round here
    I smile to cover up the pain
    Cause sorrow is common to my ears
    I seen dudes get shot right in front of my eyes
    Well . . .
    Really in the movie BELLY
    But I was still dramatized
    Cause imagine the effect it has on those who see it
    In the real
    Than have to hear
    "Reach for the stars, try hard to perservere "
    Now that . . .
    Is what I call funny
    I laugh to cover up the pain
    Cause sorrow is common to my kind
    dang . . . aint it a shame

    We may be treated like we're at the bottom of the barrel, but we don't have to sink there. Your thoughts are real, and expressed on point. Keep your head up, and keep flowing.
