ignorance is no excuss

momma taught me not to take
shit off nobody
momma taught me to speak
the fuck up
momma taught me to not
let niggas disrespect me
momma taught me how to sound off

momma learned me of my past
momma learned me to watch-out
for their white ass
momma learned me to keep
dem niggas close
momma learned me how to sound
mutherfucken off

momma said to always
stand my ground
momma said not to smile...
too much
momma said "speak loud so niggas
don't think your soft"
momma said "baby, don't be afraid
to sound off

and when I did I got twenty-years
damn..........

This made me laugh cuz we know Momma is always right. Listening to others without finding out what is true to yourself will always lead you down a path of self dought and turmoil. So thanks for speaking the &#^ up!!
