my epiphany

we heard a plethora of ghetto songs
every moral survival of the strong
these 27 long

confused years
I abused beers
and lost peers
shed tears
but persevered
to see the truth clear

it's time to delete all the foolishness from my program
and slow down
before a hot slug makes me go down

I did the stuff you doing
thought I was inhuman

and couldn't nobody stop me
until killers almost dropped me

God bless give praise
I wasn't sent to my grave 

to rest
little cousin death
still on my chest

so at night tears shed I dread I sped through life
my inspiration for the future comes from much hindsight
