Back to back still they manage

To put a price on the damage

That’s caused by harbouring knowledge

Stuff you never learn at a college

 

But still they never keep their promise

Say they’re never going to raise it

Still two faced like a racist

Can’t build a thing without basis

Half of us never make it

Tear the cycle up break it

Other half too scared to face it

Don’t know more than the basics

Live two lives like the matrix

Feed us lies but encase it

Truth unveiled how they faked it

Life’s too hard man I hate it

But can’t escape from the past, can only choose to replay it

So if it’s homage I pay it

I’m not the first one to say it

It’s getting louder so play it

So they can hear it and change it

 

If not we’re back to the basics

World full of bishops and racists

Feel like they’re stripping me naked

Taking my dignity

Rapist

Am I too young to portray this?

Should I rap about money?

Being famous?

Live my life like it’s painless?

Or find the root where the pain is and try to exterminate it

 

 

As you can see, this is actually a rap but lines between poetry and GOOD rap are pretty loose.

Anyways, thoughts and opinions please!

Good/Bad/Other

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this
