    SLOW YO ROLL

    Hey young brotha. Yeah, I'm talkin to you. I see the road ya
    takin, and for a while, it may be all good; or so it seems. Everything's
    going yo way, gotz all the money you want, got serious game wit all
    da honeys,... you just got it goin on. Who can tell you anything?
    Can't nobody tell you nuh'in, 'cause you runnin thangs, Umm Hmm.
    Common sense got you so far, and street smarts gotz you the rest of
    the way. You ain't no fool ballin the way you are. All that fast
    money you makin gives you the justfication for carryin that gat you got
    tucked near your behind,... Yeah, I know. All the big balla's and high
    rolla's got some kinda heat wit 'em, you know, just in case you gotz ta
    regulate on some fools tryin to get all up in ya bih'ness,... Yeah man,
    I be knowin. Next to makin da money, you gotz to keep it,... right?
    In livin your life as fast as you are you either roll wit da big dogs, or
    getz ran ova. If someone gets hurt for whatever reason, its not
    pers'nal,... its bih'ness. If you do somebodys girl and they end up
    geh'in sprung ova you, it just means that the other brotha wasn't
    han'lin theirs like they was 'spose to. Yeah, I see the road you takin,
    and you in the fast lane, and life is exciting goin as fast as you
    are. But you know what, I'm not gonna tell you to stop, 'cause you in
    too deep, but rather, I'll let experience do its thang, and one way or
    another, yo fast livin isn't gonna be fast after a while. It'll be up
    to you whether or not you want it to slow to a crawl or come to a
    screeching halt,... Yeah. What am I sayin? By some miracle, should
    you be incarcirated and live through the experience; should you happen
    to miss catchin a sexually transmitted disease from all 'dem girlz
    you've been geh'in bizzy wit; should you miss geh'in smoked by the very
    ones you runnin ova wit yo fast livin, messin wit they money and
    they women; and should you manage to escape the thoughts of suicide
    brought on by depression, brought on by a guilty conscience; you'll see
    that the fast life you're livin now isn't worth all dat, and yo fast
    life will slow down. However, should you decide to stay on this road,
    like a toe-down drunk behind the wheel of a car, you stand a good
    chance of geh'in yo-self killed. And for what, some money,... some
    women,... da homies?! Is that what you want to die for, only to
    realize to late that you can live and have joy unspeakable without
    any of these?! Man, I know where ya comin from, and can't nobody tell
    you a thang; but I want to say this one thing to you. You got a lot
    of days left if you don't destroy yo young life. Slow yo roll man,
    slow yo roll. If you do, you stand a much betta chance to tell anotha
    brotha what I'm tellin you, instead of being part of the dead homies
    crew. I garauntee, you'll like life a whole lot better than death.
    Just slow yo roll man,... slow yo roll.

    This was tight. Some bring an early death upon their own selves, far time to wake up. Great write poet.
