    Formulating thoughts in my mind
    trying to make them mesh
    to describe
    the
    way
    I feel when I see the young brothas
    throw away their lives
    in fleeting escapades of youth gone wild
    makes me wonder
    why did I escape
    when I could have been on of them
    yet
    I realize that I have a mind
    and with that
    the power to change my future
    my destiny is not dictated or predicated
    by the circumstance of my living condition
    but it is my desire for a better life
    that has directed in the path that I walk
    never bound by steroetyping
    I aim
    to make a claim
    on wealth
    not supplied by money
    but by knowledge
    to utilize resources
    that shall allow
    me to prosper
    and so I formulate thoughts in my mind
    to become a road map
    for others to follow in my footsteps
    for how dare I hide the secret to success
    from my people
    holding the keys
    hostage
    when I was blessed to not only receive
    but to give that which I have received
    and so the storm
    shall bring about the winds of change
    for I am my brother's keeper
    my mother's prayer
    and my father's dream come true
