At one time he used to idolize them, now he looks at them with disgust
He used to think they was his friends, but now he would never give any of them his trust
All anyone ever did was shake him like a leaf & leave him in the dust
Where they all at now, when he at his worst & the chips is down?
They still out there living life, running a muck around town
He not even in any one of their thoughts
But when he was out & they wanted to get high, wanted to party or wanted a female, they ways came around
They all had his cell number & they all always knew where he could be found
Now, he ain’t seen them or heard not even the slightest peep or sound
Why in the heck did he even BEGIN to call these people his friends?
Nah, they was really just monkeys on his back
Now that he rid off all the evil influences, his life is starting to be on the RIGHT track
Fortunately he stepped out the game with his health, his mind & all his limbs intact
With a REAL dermination to never again be derailed
His family has sat by as witnesses TOO many times as he has failed
He wants nothing more in life than for his Lord, his Mother, Father, Brother, Sister & Aunties to see him be a success
For once, he wants to involve people in something that don’t have to do with drugs, violence, or crime
He wants to set an example of how life is full of lemons & limes
That can turn into milk, honey & all kinds of sweets
He knows without an iota of success, his life will never be complete
That being said, he dares not & has VOWED to NOT EVER to go back to the streets
He’s strapped on his cleats
And he’s fighting as hard as he can, refusing to accept defeat
Refusing to be beat
Some would say since he is in prison: “How can you even compete?”
He says: “WATCH ME, it ain’t over till they drape me in white sheets”!!!
As long as his resources never deplete
He gonna make it SKEET! SKEET! SKEET!
His ambition is to have them HATERS eating outta his hands & kissing his feet!!!
He don’t forget what he came from & he remembers the “Hood Legends” he once idolized
He wishes all the ones still alive well but it’s time to say: “GOODBYE!” to them guys
Unless they can come together to set a positive example for next generations
Teach them not to worship & glorify anything but GOD & not to look at neighborhood criminals with veneration
Because in the end, them friends ain’t got nobody back, they only out for self
That’s why people in the game got the SHORTEST expiration date of anything on the shelf
He has seen how drugs & bullet holes can take a toll on & affect your health
He has seen good people die all in the cause of accumulation of wealth
The Devil operates in stealth
Lurking in the shadows, waiting for an opportunity to claim another soul
So seek refuge in God & don’t fall into the Devil’s hole!!!
Thanks for your time!!!
