    Stress and strife
    police and life
    bullets and death
    blood and last breaths

    taglines and slogans
    of the ghetto got me
    running like Logan

    14 with a baby
    definitely hers
    father's maybe?
    crack and controversy
    who's supplyin'
    who's buyin'
    who' cryin'
    who's dyin'

    son ain't comin' home tonight
    sun died so mommas cry in forever nights

    chalklines and outlines
    landmines and mindgames
    reflections feared
    fear equals hate
    hate equals erections
    of eulogies on Sunday
    Why can't the week begin
    on a Monday?

    pulpits are painted with words
    of how good a boy he was but,
    he dealt dope killing families...
    irony exercised
    is it right is it wrong
    to not pray for the dead
    who have killed? :confused:

    tears are spilled
    graves are filled
    flowers are placed
    after life is erased.
