I have a tale to tell…

I was tree feet from the floor, gasping for air
Trying to realise my father’s hands from my throat
I looked into his eyes and wonder
If my feet were ever touch the floor again
Have you ever been hit so hard that it send your body across the room
We all fall to the floor at some point
Is how you pick yourself up… that’s the real challenge, isn’t it?
I’ve always lived in my own world
I dance to escape my troubles
I’ve learned that there’s life even in the darkest places
I can’t blame my father for anything
You can’t rely on other people to make you happy
But I know deep down inside… he loved me

There was a time
I suffered so much I wanted to get it out of me
I would cut my arms
Not to kill myself, I don’t want to die
I know I am lucky to be on this earth
I did it so the physical pain conquer the pain that was eating me inside
Nothing was erased
I live with my past tucked away deep inside of me
It comes out as an explosion and… It invades me
I believe we are messengers on earth
I believe in angels
I’m blessed by God to tell myself I suffered that much to become who I am today

Now you have to realise
Not only do I have a family but now I have a whole hood… and that’s the power
But I ain’t nobody ass neeger
I was never out to kill anybody
Specially when I made that decision at gang band
I just wanted to fit in
But one day I was forced to do something that made me open my eyes
I realised that this shit ain’t no game
One of the hommies got pod
And I was pressured to do my first drop by
It was kinda fucked up the way they try to set me up
Me and my bro, we just headed back to the 8th block
Were some hommies rolled up and they asked us to go somewhere
We throw it up to the corner then he placed chunky gun ass in my lap
He says you know what to do with it… it’s time to get a puppy for the hood
But I wasn’t out to kill anybody

there’s still hope for all of us
