    sometime we forget we aren't the only ones going through things or we forget where we been cause we only see where we are now...

    u ain't the only 1 had 2 struggle & strive
    the only 1 want a better life
    u ain’t the only 1 unhappy @ home
    the only 1 man or wife like 2 roam
    u ain’t the only 1 sick & tired
    the only 1 the company fired
    u ain't the only 1 they ain’t hired
    the only 1 caught up by a snitch wearin' a wire
    u ain’t the only 1 gotta get high 2 stay grounded
    u ain’t the only 1 in the hood well rounded
    u ain’t the only 1 using food stamps at the store
    the only 1 baby mama a whore
    u ain’t the only 1 not sure takin' care of a baby nor yours
    u ain’t the only 1 with a broken heart
    the only 1 move forward to go back to start
    u ain’t the only 1 pushing groceries in a cart
    with the kids inside from the local Wal-Mart
    u ain’t the only 1 riding in a bucket
    the only 1 telln police & bill collectors [email protected] u & [email protected] it
    u ain’t the only 1 with a notice of eviction
    the only one with a criminal conviction
    u ain’t the only 1 bomb in bed
    the only one give bomb head
    u ain’t the only 1 got bread
    the only 1 caught up in some he said she said
    u ain’t the only 1 had enough
    u ain’t he only 1 had it rough
    momma or daddy got strung out on that stuff
    just to get by got to puff ...puff
    pass get the last sip in that glass
    you aint the only one phone cut off
    son a little soft
    Daughter a little hard
    u ain’t the only 1 ain’t got a green card
    u ain’t the only one ain’t vote for Bush
    stuck on that kush
    stuck on that gush
    u ain't the only 1 going through thangz
    the only1 want more to life than cars money women and chains
    u ain't the only 1 fightin to be part of that 144 thousand
    the only 1 hustlin for that mansion while you in publilc housin'
    u ain't the only 1...
    u ain't the only 1...
    i'm right there with you.:hearts4:

    Yes, so many times we think that we are all alone in a tragic situation, when actually we have plenty of company. This makes ya think. Tight write.
