    Look out for that neighborhood
    They won’t ever be understood
    Cause they need to find the soul food
    Maybe then they wouldn’t be so rude
    Why can’t people enjoy life?
    Instead of hating and living in strife
    Walking around with a switch blade knife
    What’s their deal?
    No one wants to open business cause they all steal
    Eat up before you go near, because it’ll be your last meal
    How does that feel?
    Begging, pleading as you kneel
    You can try but you can’t run
    Cutting off people’s fingers is their idea of fun
    Wouldn’t travel there unless I had a gun
    Because I’m going to be the one in the end that won
    I’m pimping it, big balling
    So free I’m falling
    Freezing this moment in time, I’m stalling
    And when they recognize, they be crawling
    Now I’ve got the power
    Standing over you like a tower
    Thinking I’ve never seen anyone more fowler
    This is going to be your last hour
    Because I need to feel protected
    Not feel insignificant and rejected
    But now I’m found and corrected
    And that’s how one chain to the next is affected
    In a way we’re all connected
    Just one big family in the end
    Every family has rivalries that they need to mend
    Hatred and controversy definitely needs to end
    People always pick on everyone
    Not understanding how much damage they’ve done
    Making as much damage as a bullet does from a gun
    Thinking all you want to do is hide and run
    Making you look like a fool
    Thinking they’re way to cool
    But all their doing is being cruel
    Why don’t you just bust my head open with a stool
    I hate how some people make me feel
    They’re unhappy so they make others feel unhappy that’s the deal
    They don’t know how to be themselves and be real
    These are the kind of people that go to jail because they steal
    Sometimes these are the types of people that I could kill
    They need to back off and take a chill pill
    Jump off their high power wannabe hill
    Because they won’t succeed but you know what, I will!

    One_Love

    Negativity, can abound, there are so many reasons for it, but trying to pull your sisters or brothers down because of it, that's just not the way. I know you'll keep your head up, looks like you know no other way.

    yes feeling your power ONE LOVE

    and your strength don't let them bring you down

    we can't enjoy because we live in a negative place

    and the 800 lb gorilla has shattered the american psyche

    this place is not about your survival or spiritual growth

    it's about "how much to you have and much how can i get from you"

    that's it and we've have allowed ourselves to lose our minds along the way

    peace
