    Let me explain something to you.

    People want to mock these streets
    People want to talk down on these streets
    They don't know these streets
    They only think they know

    I cried for these streets
    I almost died for these streets
    These streets are the reason I'm here today
    I live my life for these streets because I owe them so much

    Without these streets, there would be no me
    There would be no obstacles to get over
    The world would just be easy
    Life would be easy. Life is not supposed to be easy

    If it was easy, then people would be lazy
    Without these obstacles, we would be lost souls
    We owe everything to them
    The cars, the money, the food, the fancy clothes

    All of that belong to the streets

    I feel that
    The streets brought times of struggle
    Learned how to help one another
    Came up with sugar water and no butter
    Sometimes no lights no water
    Well it wasnt hot/So why bother
    I seen death in streets/That made me believe
    That there has to be a better way for me
    Before I selling dust to these angels in the streets
    My man was committing murders
    Bodies fell at my feet/I came through the pits
    With a smirk and a grin/To make a better way
    Cause too be honest I feel ya
    If was easy i would be lazy as hell
    Obstacles created impossible im on a mission
    With the streets cause that were it belongs

    Much love Poet

    Well written. You may want to listen to a song called: "Street Life". Your vision may change, for the streets have been here for thousands of years and the lesson with it. Great work....soon to get greater.

    word up man..

    the streets raised me,the streets gave me
    all the knowledge i have ,but then the streets
    turned around and played me

    im glad,cause if not i will never know
    whut it was to go hungry ,
    or how it felt to hustle

    got caught up for a moment,
    peace was forgotten
    but nothin' get missed
    cause the streets are watchin'



    man this peice was right up my alley...it seem real genuine tho...

    nice flow poet...stay up meng
