    This is for all my brotha's who's windows are bars....

    For those of you who do not know what it is like in the inside isolated from
    all those you love, freedom taken away because of foolish mistakes made
    some worst then others and some that could never be forgiven by anyone except God alone.

    First thing in the morning you have to WAKE UP!
    then you have to GET UP! and then you LINE UP!
    before TIME IS UP! before you get your meds, you
    have to WALK UP! before you get your money
    you have to SIGN UP! before you get your mail they
    have to BRING IT UP! if you try to have some fun
    they tell you that you are talking to loud and if you
    don’t SHUT UP! you will be WRITTEN UP! and then
    you will be taken to LOCK UP! unless they decide
    you are too rowdy and then they will LOCK DOWN!
    when you go out to the yard to try to KICK IT UP!
    almost everyday somebody gonna get BEAT UP!
    on the last day of the UP! when your time is UP! they
    tell you there sorry your paper work is MESSED UP!
    once you get out if you MESS UP! you’re going to
    get sent back UP!.

    It seems that by now brothers and sisters would get the
    message that the system is F…UP! and they have to
    stop SNORTING UP! and ROCKING UP! quit doing
    things wrong stop giving UP! and start LOOKING UP! to
    God and get PUMPED UP! by hope and determination to
    make it in this world and change the circumstances, throw
    in the hand you were dealt and get a new deck of cards better
    yet get a new dealer and start STANDING UP! now that is
    WORD UP!
