    Yeah, it's a game out there
    It's both here and there
    A game that everybody plays but some are unaware
    It's called the game of survival
    And this may sound trivial
    But only the strong survive
    And everyday we ALL struggle to stay alive
    It's called the game

    Every hood ain't the same but I guarantee you in every hood there's a lady
    Not just any lady
    But a lady that's the neighborhood freak
    Freak-a-leak
    That sexs every man or woman for a buck
    And just don't give a f**k
    Now she may be wide open with her s**t
    or undercover but I guarantee you this description for someone fits
    It's the game

    The game that holds a drug dealer
    Cocaine, Weed, Crack, Ex, or just illegal prescription dealer
    Making money just to make you forget last night
    About your overdue bills and the husband or wife that just didn't come in last night
    He's there
    And he's always aware of your troubles
    And rumbles
    Because that's how he plays the game

    The same game that hold that woman who cries every night because of her man
    Who left her with no money and four children
    Going to church don't seem right
    And being a night crawler is just too far out of sight
    So she settles into a single mother lifestyle
    Taking care of those children some may or may not become wild
    But she knows it's her job to raise them
    And shelter them from loosing the game
    And being the blame
    To the end of the game

    The game that holds Mr. Gift to all women
    Who injects any and every woman with his semen
    And lightens
    Every woman's face to get a chance to get in her hymen
    Talking fast
    And playing the game to the fullest to get in dat @ss
    A trophe case
    Mr. Model type in the face
    And Mr. NOT- So- Mighty below the waist
    Yeah, you know who you are
    I won't call no names but don't put yourself on a bar
    If you don't want to fall far
    The game

    The same game that paints the picture of that girl who mama and daddy died or just didn't give a s**t
    Who got to live day to day by herself with her own wit
    If that means stripping or ********
    That's what she does
    It was the hand that was dealt to her and she won't fuss
    Because she got to do what she got to do
    And winning the game is her major goal
    That's the game

    The one that tells the story of that brother living pay check to pay check
    To support his family who he got on deck
    Living large is far from where he is
    But he prays to God that he get something called his
    Before his game is through
    And do
    More for his family than any thing his daddy put him through
    Because he's determined to keep his game playing

    The game that took this lady's children
    Thug and user of drugs is what happened to her children
    Now she sits up late nights praying
    And praying
    And giving
    And giving
    To the living
    While she prays for her own children
    To release their demons
    While she struggle to play her own card

    As you can see the game has a card for everybody
    From to holy living to almost dying
    The game has a card being dealt
    It's your problem to keep the cards going or your fate will welt
    And be felt
    Be watchful of the players too
    Becuz the game can be proven to be taboo

    So krazelyricks, is this "The Game" that you read, oh so well from time to time in chat?
    Cause that one is just off the hook when you read it as only you can. This poem brings to mind just how many games we may be unwilling to play but to survive, we do. You are always giving us something to think about, and I always like that in a poem. Flow on please.
