smile before its too late


young and colored by the way of the skin
young colored brotha screamin within
jus tryna make it
jus tryna make it
growin up writin grammer wrong by tha pen
hopin i dont commit crimes to greet all of my fellow frenz
in the pen
not the ink
but what you think
gettin s tr8t A's cannot spell worth ish
but my grammer will improve by educations kiss.
coming from where i was nurtured
the highest crime rate was muder
but still i climb while the world gets its slumber
cause im young, black, and im from St. Johns
but im going to make it...
