    i think i can be
    quiet
    peaceful and flow
    where i'm 'bout to go
    but it's really been too quiet
    out on the surface
    while within my inner being it's been a riot
    the way things be
    even when accepted by the masses
    aint necessarily where they should be
    even though in classes
    it's taught like that
    can't just accept what i've been told
    the histry i know
    is way too cold
    for me to be passive
    thinking someone who historically didn't treat me right
    could be automatically into teachin me right
    and the forked tongue
    didn't never get rid of it's fork
    as far as i can remember or see
    it aint been that dark
    that it cudda just happened
    and i missed it
    and though that butt was turned up to me
    i never once kissed it
    i been watchin and prayin
    and workin
    with a little playin
    keepin my head clear
    gave up alcohol and dope
    even niggerteen
    it all dulled my hope
    and this i came up with
    and i think it's right
    can't let rumors of change
    stop my fight
    to pull myself up
    from the place the lies put me
    and aint nobody gone do this
    so i found........................but me
    deception's alwayz
    been the way that's tricked me
    got me down on the ground
    and then kicked me
    right in my nuts
    trying to destroy my future chances
    cut off my progeny
    stop all my advances
    alwayz a sucka punch
    conned me
    got my confidence then screwed me
    has this all suddenly changed
    i aint waitin aroun tryna see
    i aint listenin to some explanation
    of who i am, how i feel, what i see and hear
    it's all so very plain
    as i stand here a survivor......enlightened without fear
