    placing bullets in the gun
    placing pulpits before the sun
    tanning verses darkening the message
    of my "hell"acy that i lived looking
    for a legacy to begin with my
    name falling within memorable memories
    of me BUT my mind had no legs
    so i could not walk towards the light
    and relished in the dark growing
    as a nocturnal nightcrawler wearing
    a kevlar vest on the occupant that sits
    inside the left side of my chest
    not feeling but stealing breaths and tomorrows
    father of hatred and a mothers' sorrow
    of a sons now gone.....deviant behavior
    used to be my savior to explain what I saw
    and estrange me from what I saw in the
    mirror...this miscontorted, misunderstood,
    mismanaged state of a man...that was
    breast fed by mis justice and raised in the
    justice system reprogrammed to understand
    that I was nothing more than what
    got me adopted in the first place
    I am an orphan of self and I'll never find
    my real parents cause the streets
    raised me and the institutions enslaved me
    and now it's time to be free

    (bang)
