    There's no children here
    just us of lonely fear
    in such poverty i shed a tear
    struggling yet hope that we stear
    for a mind dat's cyrstal clear

    on da other side of the street
    where we fight not in defeat
    yet da loyality continues to leak
    no children here as i speak
    just us worriors death now seek
    heart & soul still i weep

    Because there's no children here
    been taken by da peer
    betrayed and stolen like slaves
    killed upon many i stand at da graves
    life horror of our youth
    leaves me dry speechless as an mute

    To preach is to teach as we reach
    for children of our better morrow
    wit deeds of hope and no shame & sorrow
    raising da bars of our higher power

    what would it be like if there was no seed
    children of us to carry on da deed
    we may dread for they desert us all til no more
    it would be worse then deadly sin of before
    i'm just on the other side of the street

    Where are we without our children? On a road to no where. This write makes us reflect on that possibility and cringe. Well done Rich.

    On the other side of the street is a child you'll never meet
    For warriors of daily surival exsist on this side of the street
    All victims of the infamous no child left behind crusade
    Young marytrs for the cause as life continues its parade

    Times have made the babes step into manhood
    robbing them of their essential years of childhood
    Nowadays society mortages their precious future
    And wonder why their motives are no longer pure

    TO be continued ....

    Bro. $$Rich$$ I could definitely understand the other side of the street because it looks like the side of street that I reside on. You bring the truth to forefront in souch a bold and intense manner. keep doing what you do my brother.
