Road of Hope

 Along this road
the struggles are hard
hope is razor thin 
 Cocaine is stop signs
preventing many from moving ahead
diamonds and gold became blinders
keeping children from seeing their potential 
 Being so far down
it hurts to look up
struggling just yo make through today
 Prisons have become today's cotton fields
in this world I live hope is hard
many seek drugs to kill the pain 
having mothers hooked on drugs
 Looking at pictures
knowing bad out weigh the good
drinking liquor to stomach the things seen
 Crooked police kill
but the stories are never told
one day hope will vanish
