    The world is yours…
    Everything you can see
    To walk
    To talk
    To live and breathe
    Given these simply gifts
    many minds at anytime
    can be uplifted
    maybe drift in higher plains
    and fly the same mental paths
    of our ancestors
    and quest the freedom to be
    Just the freedom to see
    beyond the ropes and chains
    of too many centuries
    to hopes on the horizon
    far as the minds eye can
    visualize and grasp
    is enough to navigate the
    pits, snares and traps
    of oppression, hate,
    mental slavery and a lack
    of access
    that basic blackness
    evokes in the heart of haters
    Yet the world is yours…
    From the rising to the setting of the sun
    Beyond the jail cells and prisons
    Beyond the ghettos and slums
    Beyond the stifling walls of concrete
    Beyond the asphalt of any street
    Beyond the prisons without walls
    All concepts and ideals are within reach
    Too many ears not to hear
    Too many eyes not to see
    That because you choose it to be
    The world is yours…

    the world is mine
    well tell me why were not willing to do the time

    many of us forgot where we come from
    when someone ask us we pretend act dumb

    some of come from the projects the slum
    mama always kept us nice never looking like bums

    wanna tell lies about our beginnings
    wanna lie to other about our sinnings

    hypocrits sucking off me like leeches
    so mesmorized off their colorful features

    world is yours
    tell me how long should i endure

    when our own men turn against us
    tell me when we gonna come as one and discuss

    how we can make this a better place
    instead of my brotha's calling me a ***** to my face

    or *** sit down
    trying to be like Dj (hard out here for a pimp)played out like them tired sounds

    yeah world may be mine
    cant stand anotha minute saying everything fine
    men everyday giving me some played out lines
    take back that cheap @ss wine
    and hook me up with your friend named DeVyne

    cause he look like he got class
    and he seems to be not about the @ss

    Because he whispered in my ear

    The world is yours!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    holla at me skrybble if you want to nybble!!!!!! hahhahhahah
    :love:

    Baby stay on course
    We been doin the time
    can’t forget the source
    And it don’t matter
    if we get rich
    or stay dirt poor
    I see you got the keys
    to open every door
    to elevate your mind
    Been strong from the beginin’
    And when your fishin’
    consider the pool you get in
    Consider the bate
    even the tackle box
    when to hold it wide open
    when to keep it on lock
    I know you make the bed rock
    I ain’t even tryin to doubt it
    Back in the day
    I’d a been all about it
    Would’ve had my nose open
    just by the way you think
    You’d a been that glass of water
    I’d a been tryin’ to drink
    Been celibate 3 long years
    on the path to getting’ married
    I’m a get it right
    before the time I get buried
    I know you got it goin’ on
    baby’s built for any weather
    And when it comes to our peeps
    I know we got to come together
    You was born to be a queen
    Nevar to be neglected
    Nevar to be called out your name
    Nevar to be disrespected
    I can see you been affected
    By the ill works of some
    We all need to be reminded
    of where we come from
    So while you check the fishin’ lines
    And all the fishin’ gear
    I’m a still lean over and whisper in your ear
    The world is yours…

    Much love and respect to ya.

    yeah see this is what im talking about
    the ish your kicking makes me want to shout

    that yes there are a Few Good Men
    and I see you don't play the game pretend
    but will all depend

    on what on the menu tonight
    baby im tired of the lame bites

    that i recieved
    over and over i've been knocked to tha knees
    to see a carving of long ago still upon the tree

    like Ne-yo so sick of love songs
    be like Al Green I'm so tired of being alone

    Seems like no man deserve this good Peach
    Coming from the south honey I pratice what I preach

    There's more to me then just sex
    I'm a mother, a lover, a fighter, a friend who knows what's best
    been put through so many test

    but i trust and trust
    till my heart just went bust
    because it seems my brotha are in lust

    for that nut
    talking bout a sista how he was all up in the gut
    so what

    give me a man that don't play
    and i'll give him a Queen that will make his day

    I see what cha saying daddy
    waiting on the right one to make you happy

    tired of going down that rode to nowhere
    aint no sense in harping on this life isnt fair

    always have to roll with the punches
    life so jumbled up like my hair scrunches

    just when i think to give it up
    you came and gave me some all shucks

    made me think there is hope
    and not all men are bad ready to feed you their poisonous dope

    yes continue to whisper in my ear

    The world is Yours!!!!!!!!!!
    :love:

    as i look back on this
    and now were at a point on this

    that you showed me a new way
    and were talking just about every day

    you showed me in order to find love you have to get right
    and i appreciate you showing me the light
    and now im on a mission to fight

    the urges that are deep with my soul
    i ask how did you gain control

    of the feelings that you once knew
    and how did you get over the feeling of being blue

    you showed me a real man can love
    you showed me that it can come from above

    but in order for things to go my way
    i must pray

    and pray i will
    but still

    and you interrupt to say there's no but's
    in this game of life there is a must

    how can i find the right man when im falling behind
    but in my heart i feel ive served my time

    but who chose my path
    and who has helped me to fuel the wrath

    me
    and you help me to see

    the faults lie within Nevar
    if i wont to get far

    i must obstain from the bad and soak up the good
    and you gave me reasoning to the point that i understood

    if i want to get the life i so desire
    i must put out the fire

    that within my body
    its hard giving up the naughty

    but i want to be happy i want to be free
    i want to be able to fulfill me

    and not settle for less
    i know in my heart my heavenly father knows what best

    and thats why im grateful i have a loving brotha like you to tell me
    that

    The World is Mine.
