    THE SYSTEM,
    designed to make one hallucinate
    Something for nothing,
    an illusion that you are
    living in comfort.
    You're imprisoned .
    A prison with invisible bars,
    called Subsidize Housing.
    Some never get paroled.

    THE SYSTEM
    tells you who to live with, how to live,
    When to move, where to move.
    Crippling and brainwashing you
    into believing you can't make it.

    The pattern is passed down through generations,
    before you know, years have evaporated.
    Nothing was accomplished,
    you have nothing to show for the years you've lived,
    but a NUMBER.
    WAKE UP!
    Realize you're struggling with almost nothing,
    imagine what you could do with more.

    Take pride in something you've achieved on you own.
    know the great feeling of walking into a home that is yours
    No one can tell you who to welcome,
    nor how long they can stay.
    STOP
    MEDITATE
    discover the truth.
    Deprogram yourself,
    live upto your potential,
    Leave THE SYSTEM behide,
    a destiny of disparity.
    Begin to build your own destiny
    with it comes,
    DIGNITY
