We are living in perilous times where genocide is the new form of suicide
Because when you kill somebody for the sake of blatant disrespect you've really disrespected the victims mother, father, sister and brother
And ultimately yourself
For when the smoke clears you should be crying their same tears because we all bleed the same blood at the end of the day
So you've ultimately killed yourself because of the mental suicide of pride, and now where can you hide
Are you truly ready to die like you say in your daily street corner dissertation
Because they're comin'
Are you truly ready to die
Cause when the shells fly from the retaliation drive-by
There's no use in runnin'
Just take your stance like the 'g' you claim to be
You said you ready to die for yours right?
Now is the opportunity to get the famous rep a dead man never remains to see
You died for what you 'believe'
Leaving your mother and others that love you to grieve
Because you were too selfish to just let it ride
So now it's enemy-assisted suicide
Avoidable when you take the time to think about your seed you'll leave behind in need
Not just your money, but your inspiration
So your seed can look up to you and chase heart-felt dreams without hesitation
What is the complication?
Your baby needs you
Your lady needs her gentleman
Your mother needs her son
Your father needs his baby boy, even if he hasn't figured out how to tell you, but patient hope can change that too
Sometimes pain and anger and grief are too much for belief
And death to you seems like the only escape, leaving loved ones with unanswered questions
Your casket draped with tears
Maybe they'll be able to leave it open so your face can be touched for one last good-bye
Do words really need to be carried that far
Just for the sake of somebody knowing who you are
I was ready to die
Then somebody cared enough to present me with a perplexing inquiry
'When are you gonna be 'g' enough to just let it ride'
'They're just words right?'
Honor and respect
Are we supposed to hold code to them in a gangsta abode and act like we're gods?
It took almost my life to finally realize the facade
Those words have been twisted so it seems there is validity for unknowingly or knowingly rebelling against 4 simple words
Thou shalt not kill...
I keep reminding myself because strife and conflict make it easy to lose sight
So my prayer is that God grants me the grace to make it right
Because I love my brother
Do you love me?
It's the only way we'll be able to live on...
