    Dear GOD;
    i wanna ask forgiveness for what i'm about to pull
    but i'm hungry on the streets
    belly need to be full
    so imma run up in here with two bricks and a gat
    i don't wanna hurt nobody
    but my pockets are slack
    my moms gettin kind of old, she shouldn't be on her feet
    my daddy aint sh*t
    so who take care of her but me?
    i got three Godchildren all lookin my way
    to bring home the bacon
    so they can eat everyday
    i got a good heart; but it's a criminal's mind
    i got a right to live, too;
    takin every opportunity i find
    and i wish i could be a little softer or care a little more
    but weakness is like poverty;
    keep you knee-to-dirt on the floor
    why should i scrape my knees when i can take what i need?
    i'm not robbing the elderly, disabled, or poor-
    this n*gga got more than me.
    so i'm doin what i gotta- i'm as simple as that.
    You might be tired of blessing my hustle;
    i may not make it back.
    and i might go to hell or then again You might forgive;
    but i cant worry about that now.
    all i can do is live.
    i was told i am Your child;that Your love for me is long
    so i'm trustin that you love me now
    even though i'm living wrong.
    and if i knew a right way to go about things
    to support my peoples
    through legal means
    if i seen one open door Father i'd already be there
    i know this isn't what you want
    and believe me i care
    so when i pull this trigger don't curse me forever
    this is temporary dirt.
    until i do better.
    but right now i'm hungry.
    and i get fed with my beretta.
    So I'm Goin In.
    AMEN.

    can't knock the hustle. gotta eat, right?
    This brings to mind a biblical scripture
    in Proverbs
    Proverbs 6:30-31
    Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
    But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

    Peace.
