This goes out to all of today's youth..., no matter how young or old. Keep the faith, we stand behind you, you are not alone.


Standing on my doorstep
Can't think of what to do next
I close my eyes, head to the skies
Lord, help me with my next step
They say they've tried to help me
They're just not getting through
Don't hope they wash their hands of me
With nothing left to do
I tell them it's not like that
Intentions, they’re all good
Remind them of my way of life
I'm living in the hood
It's hard to pay attention
The lectures and the books
My pride, oh did I mention
Can't take the tough right hooks
I ask you for compassion
For I'm not giving up
My reputation trashin'
I'll fill up my own cup
I understand you sacrifice
and treasure all your great advise
If only you'll bear with me now
I'll make you proud just not sure how
My smile I got from Momma
I'm sorry that she cries
I know she wants the best for me
I've seen how hard she tries
Mistakes, she thinks she'll save me
I've watched her pay the price
The future it just slaves me
My turn to roll the dice
