    What's the difference between a black man and a white man
    in these bad lands
    both plagued with an addiction
    to the coca leave and destructable greed,
    To get their next hit they'd steal from their seed
    Looked upon as rottening flesh their families
    mourn and grieve :cry:
    They are societies misfits to all who see
    but no one understands their tragedy
    Both are locked in a box cause of these slang rocks :help:
    They start going through withdraw so they want to quit but can't stop
    Reality is harsh to these fallen stars :spinstar:
    Not given a opportunity to a fresh start
    So they suck the glass dyck
    To feel like they fit
    it's easier to stay high embrassing ignorance is their bliss

    So can someone please tell me
    What's the difference between a black man and a white man
    who can't stand
    to see the hurt and pain in their mother's eyes :(
    Knowing she can't sleep at night
    waiting for her child's demise
    Not wanting to see her fatherless child
    be this wild
    lost in what seems like an eternity of lies
    She pray night and day
    for her baby to find his way
    Cause no amount of memories can replace
    her kissing her childs face :flirt:
    or hearing his voice and cries
    She pray lord why?
    wishing she could turn back the hands of time
    to change what made her baby kiss the glass dyck just to try
    Killing their chances of a secussful life
    With more chances than strikes
    Scars of pain shatters their race
    and erase
    the color lines
    Death sees no race, creed, or color just the next life
    to confine
    on his long list of those to die :deal:
    Not caring about age or dreams
    he's the end to all ends filled with supremacies
    handed down by God
    only differences is in who will cry :cry:
    for these lost souls
    death stole.
    So
    There is no difference between a white man and a black man
    filled with the same insecurites
    and choices you see.
    Death take identities
    he knows of no biggotry
