This is based on all of the news that I've heard over the passed year....so much of the news has been really really messed up. So I decided to bring a little attention to it Enjoy

P.S. Its been a while since i've done spoken word so this may be bad.

 

Have I reached you yet?

Dealing with the problems of today and tomorrow
Police not worried about consequence
killin innocence left and right 
shattering the death everything we try to teach the youth.

Have I reached you yet?

Walkin into an alley or down a side street 
bein mugged or picked on or laughed at
Nothin gets done or no one gets told 
Then the next day a disgruntled angry teenager
comes to school with an m9 and a shot gun 
in an attempt to get vengence or revenge for his lost pride
or that sad and depressed teenage girl who cries and cries
her eyes wellin up til she commits suicide..

Have I reached you yet?

Loved ones turnin on loved ones
killin and raping 
The same people we trust to a  point to lay down our life for 
Constintly mindfucking us into a false sense of security
Only to stab us in the back

Have I reached you yet?

The confused Son who sees daddy hit mommy
and Doesn't understand why
and this mild confusion grows into a Thriving curiosity
Influincing his choice to eventually do the same to the person that he loves
or claims to love...

Have I reached you yet?

The wife who comes home to the smell of sex in the air
and still decides to stay with the mother fucker even though
she knows for a fact he is cheating
Or the stupid bitch that stays with a nigga who hits her 
and decides and I quote "I think I can change him" 
But really he is an abuser and will always be an abuser.

Have I reached you yet?

Please tell me I'm getting close 
Tell me why I'm seeing all of these scenes unravel before my eyes
why do I see on the news a story about a 10 year old child 
Being Kept in adult prison for 2 fuckin months for beating up an old lady
I understand he broke the law but hes just a fuckin baby
he don't need prison he needs fuckin help 
The government of his city should fuckin look at themselves

Have I reached you yet?

From what I've seen the evil of this world is growin stronger
Doesn't look like anyone will survive much longer
Police breakin the law gettin away scott free
The constant spread of Diseases Including HIV
Mothers cryin because their sons or daughter dont come home
Sons and daughters cryin because they see their mother goin through it on her own

Have I reached you yet? 

Please tell me I've reached you
This last year of 2014 has been fucking crazy 
and it seems like life might be ending someday maybe...Civilized life that is.
We're impacted by a curse and the new generation is livin it.
But we should try to end the curse for those who come next
I hope this gets through to the people that need it.
Brothers and sisters lets put this shit to rest.

......I hope I reached you..
