    maybe i'm doing things wrong
    but i dont care
    i want everything i see out there.
    nine to five and back again
    my fingers to the bone
    it was easier just to hustle.
    i dont care if its wrong.
    house note overdue
    car without rims
    no food in the cabinet
    phone bill due again.
    i'd rather hustle.

    if i hustle i dont have to be mad
    that nobody holds out a hand to me.
    soulless
    heartless
    cold
    mean
    if i hustle, i can be as solitary as these streets.
    i dont hate; just not required to love
    cause the only thing the street honors
    is cash.
    and it dont matter
    nobodys waitin at home for me
    **** company- i got my stash.

    so i turned in my time sheet.
    emailed my notice.
    **** the two weeks.
    kicked off those "sensible shoes"
    traded in my chanel suit
    for denim blues.
    put my hair back in a ponytail
    wiped the make up off my face
    Ms.Dy gone hit the block tonight
    Ms.Williams disappeared without a trace.

    i could have blown my last chance
    at redemption, forgiveness from sin
    but i'm tired of living hand to mouth
    scraping strugglin stressin 365
    i just had enough.
    i'd rather hustle again.
    peace-MsDy

    Way of life!

    Hustling is a way of life! I can't pretend I DON'T miss the streets! I love the streets, they have taught me so! Being legit is harder than the constant paper flow, but I strive to make things better later not just for right now. Str8 flo! Feelin it!

    I feel you, but the streets ain't all good either.

    However, that side of the legit life ain't fair. But, there is a hustle in that too. Ya feel me?

    Nice...very nice.

    :toast: :D
