    From the Watchtower
    I watch
    as brothas
    with nothing to do
    hold mass congregations
    on city streets
    like church on Sunday
    folks running
    with money
    but not to receive
    a blessing from on high
    but a curse from the pit
    snow flakes
    that makes them rise to the occasion
    only to make them crash and burn
    yet we continue
    to peddle
    meddle
    with the minds of our peeps
    while
    society
    tends to tally up
    the number
    of our folks
    dropping like flies
    due to
    supply and demand
    killing innocents
    for a quick fix
    that gets shorter and shorter
    with each hit
    keeping ******
    coming back for more
    on the hook
    like a fish
    struggling to get loose but can't
    we try to justify
    saying
    white man is responsible
    for it being in the hood
    yet who put the gun to our heads
    to sample his goods
    can't blame no one but ourselves
    for this earthly hell
    when our Father tries to show us
    a different way
    we rather play in the snow
    not realizing
    that the snow is not really white
    but black
    like a million moonless nights
    trapping us in its darkness
    because we can't see the light
    yet those of us who know
    where the light is
    refuse to show those in darkness
    shaking our heads
    talking about what a shame
    they messed their lives up
    we are just as guilty
    we snatched the lightbulbs away
    no longer speak of the light
    no longer give them hope in seeing the light
    are we truly walking in the light?
    or are we also trapped in the darkness
    forgetting what the light is truly all about?

    you don't speak often
    but when you speak

    If they would just seek the Light
    for the lighthouse shines on them
    but they refuse
    the God of this world
    has blinded the minds of the people

    yet we who are proclaimers
    of the Light
    must let that light shine through us
    but many
    are hiding that light
    under a bushel

    Let the light shine
    so that men may see your good works
    and glorify the Father which is in heaven

    Just couldn't resist piggybacking on this little bruh.
