As I sit

as i sit in an evolutionary state of mind so close to a revolutionary state of mind do i really love this state of mind. its like our influence came from those that were under the influence so school kids become truents and parents are careless they could care less. its almost the wrong verses the right to live life without the fear that it might be taken from you so i choose to choose me indeed we need to give to our community but i saw the sight of my god weeping because of the fouls of his childrens children now isn't that chilling but its all forgiven as i sit in this little corner of mines inside of my mind you will find where glory is found the names that's pronounced is that of a strong young soldier with shoulders than can hold the weight of the world but im going now i cant wait on the world.its written that my family needs me i know that heaven believes in me i know the hood can but of late neighborhoods don't have neighbors some saviors came with a cadillac with bass in the back but i live for a higher cause life wont pause just because you are tired keep on pushing i have a one track mind so until i find my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow i wont bow out im taking the last shot the ball is in my hands and why not i was made for this so on the wings of an angel swish
