    Everytime, I come around this corner
    all yall do is hang out, drink, smoke and yell
    at every woman who walks by..
    Doesn't that ish get tired after a while?
    You brothas really need to get a life
    grown *** men, hangin on the corner...
    Im 19 years old in college, doing something
    with my life...
    You brothas are perfect examples of the type of man
    I don't want to be...
    I mean, just the other day, Pookie shot Tyrone over 20 dollars
    and now he's doing 15.....

    It seem like, drama is always going down with yall
    Ms Johnson is scared to walk around here because
    she's afraid yall might mug her.
    Yall wonder why the police is always harrassin yall
    but yall don't give them a reason not to...
    You kats be shootin dice in front of the liqour store
    sellin weed or crack to our own people
    Being disrespectful to our sistas, callin them B's and hos
    flossin your fake *** chains,
    throwin' up gang signs,
    Tryin to pick a fight with everyone,
    Yall brothas need to grow the up....

    The youth looks up to yall
    Look where you are leading them....
    I do not want to see another black mother cry
    because she had to burry her child nor do
    I want to see another black boy being taken away
    in hand cuffs.....
    We don't need no more worthless negroes
    We need to start raising, doctors, lawyers, scientist, teachers and leaders
    It's time for us to continue the legacy of our ancestors,
    who struggled so we, their descendents could have the opportunities they
    didn't have.....
    I would hate to think that our forefathers
    were beat, lynched and humiliated for nothing...
    Malcolm X didn't die just so we could
    drink and smoke our lives aways and
    run around like baffoons
    Yall need to grow up.....

    This was a powerfully peace piece.

    It is truly a shame what our children's role models are like, but U are a future, & I am happy that U are.

    Keep your mind right, young brother, & do what you've been called 4.
