    I see life in other ways you dont
    I see children in garbage cans-Crackhead mothers
    I see men out here beating there woman all of these queens are our mothers
    I see so many black killing each other
    Im not racist or nothing but not too many whites do this too each other
    I see my man trying to get me to smoke
    Give me cancer sticks and second hand smoke
    I see wars-In Iraq to London-When will it end
    bush dont like Black People and ill say it again
    Why is my brother and his brothers and ther brothers always fighting a war with no cause-Just to finish what one man started I cant believe this God
    I know these streets aint perfection
    I see these hookers and the pimps agression
    I know I dont go to church all the time
    I know I go to clubs sometimes cheat im a Man not a God please dont frown
    I want to be better than what God thinks I might be
    I want to be a leader cause thats my destiny
    Im not even trying to ryhme right now if it does its meant to be
    I know that we all talk about love for our woman and the way we want to make life better-Im not trying to go to Africa to get away
    Im trying to go to Africa to make a better way
    Aids is killing my people death swarms us like flys
    I want to visit my people-Feed there children-And meet my alias
    Mother africa what in the world has come to your people
    Taken from our mother Africa-There slowly trying to again slave my people
    This is the last of the last and the last thing is this
    The streets are life and God is my world
    And are woman are our protectors like the mothers we cherish and the fathers we miss-And even though im a bastard I Love you father but I will never forget!!
    Love-Life & Learn-Bless 2 You All
