Since my very first day on this earth,
I was cursed, so I knew the birth of a child would make my life worse,
Though it hurt me, there was no remorse, because wild seeds can grow,
Watch your soul"
All I could give it was my debt and my last name,
Cause in the game things change, living up and down,
This hard life got me walking with my head down, flashing frowns, wasn't meant to be was I wrong? But I'll never get to know so I carry on"
"You tried to trap me say you pregnant, and guess who the daddy?
Don't want to fall for it, but in this case what could I do?"
"While getting paid, at the same time, just had a baby with the same mind,
Something inside, Please let me die, these are strange times"
Born Through hard times, Ghetto child of mine, I wonder, if you have to suffer, for your father's crimes"
Though Look at her, Walking and talking, A little child With my eyes And mouth, Father Watch over little seeds, Help me Guide them out, Had to change My whole lifestyle, Maybe in time I'll be a better man, Watching' the older couples Handle it Like veterans, Show me the meaning Of forever, And together we rise, If it would, Help our child grow
