getting through life

Living without guidance is  

A path of trial and error  

There are No role models  

Instead players and thugs  

Women acting out  

Trying to be the biggest hoe  

Without an conscious thought  

There is just no love 

 Life does  not stop  

You create your  own ending 

Winning can be the beginning  

For many with no understanding 

Surviving is not a goal  

It is something you are  born with  

So do something with your gift 

For your kids will have the same success  

Not able to progress past society's  

Never ending strain of stress  

You ask for forgiveness for the past 

But do something now  

So someone can thank you in the future  

Like the Heroes in our past.  

The difference between now and then  

They did not struggle by choice 

But struggle because they had no voice  

Silence is what started Mlk's dream 

We have to use what we are to compete 

Kings and queens you know what I mean  

We shall not die without completing our dreams  

Or at least giving our children a chance to finish what we started 

Like Martin Luther King  

I didn't mean to make this sound like a plead  

But your voice and screams aren't giving us what we need 

So put your guns down and your thoughts up  

Make sure our future don't run on the same luck
