    Is it societies mistake
    that my lil' cousin got raped
    and society gets the blame for what R.Kelly put on tape
    Is it societies fault
    that some of us were never taught
    and why is it that society takes blame
    for our kids ghetto a~~ names
    Is it societies problem
    to tame people that rob 'em
    school kids cant spell
    why cant society solve 'em
    why is it that society takes heat
    for our music and the sneakers we put on our feet
    Suicide and Self-Hate
    How much more can society take
    Drugs and Blood Money
    How much more can society make
    Maybe its societies fate
    to be the thing that we hate
    now its time to step up
    and put society in its place!!!!

    YES I AGREE SOCIETY MUST BE PUT IN ITS' PLACE TO PROMOTE POSITIVENESS
    AND NOT THE NEGATIVE DESTRUCTIVE STUFF WE SEE NOW

    BUT SOCIETY MIGHT NOT BE AT FAULT BUT ALOT OF YOUTH LEARN FROM THIS SOCIETY AND THE DOWNFALL IS

    TRYING TO BE "COOL"

    AND WE YOU TRY TO LEARN
    "OH YOU'RE TRYING TO BE WHITE'"

    SO THEY BREAK YOU DOWN TOO

    IT'S A SHAME, SO ALL THESE DUMBED OUT PEOPLE WALK AROUND
    AND WHEN THE HIT 37 38 YEARS OF AGE, NOW THE HAVE NO EDUCATION SO THEY TRY TO SELL NEWPORTS ON THE CORNER AND ANYTHING ELSE THEY CAN SELL

    STRONG POEM HERE POET

    OBVIOUSLY I FELT IT

    PEACE

    We feed off society and society feeds off us, like some endless negative cycle. I'm digging the message and where you took this poet.
