Predetermined

Sam 



The chance has never been yours,
No matter what you wanted to do,
If they didn't will it,
it wouldn't come true.

Don't listen to what people say,
for the bed you lay in is premade,
freedom comes from emancipation,
but we wont survive with segregation.

A predetermined future,
and a pad lock on the door,
A predetermined future,
only to see what's in store.
