The hood die young

The hood die young.. Written May 
2008 When two young men from 
my city, Montreal got their lives 
taken away within days of 
eachother& too soon. Gone but 
never forgotten RIP RAMBO & 
NETSA ! & All the other fallen 
soilders xo

The Hood Die Young 

I Was Always Told The Good Die 
& It Got Me Thinkin' All The People 
So Young We Done Lost Was From 
The  Hood
Society Claims Were Up To No Good,
Puttin' Dirt On Their Names As They 
Layin' In The Mud
BUT I Know They Just Lyin' Because..
The Good Die Young & So Does The 
Hood,So I Say The Hood Die Young 
 Doin' Anything To Break Bread,
As We Know That Ain't The Reason 
They All Dead.
God  Had A Better  Plan For Them 
Our  Challenge Is To Hold Our Head,
As High As We Can!
Remember  We'll Meet Again
At The Promise Land ..
No Matter What We'll Be Sad!
BUT Smile In Thier Memory
Eventhough  You Feel Like Life Ain't 
How It Supposed To Be,
Breakin' Down Like This,However 
One Day You'll See
The Pain In Your Heart Set Free  
& God Specifically Choose Them For 
The Reason
There's A Time And Place For 
Everything And Their Time Was 
Hoods Are Cryin'
'Cause Hoods Are Dyin'
Just Keep Your Head Up & Keep 
Respect The Hood,Keep Showin' 
'Cause As You Know;The Hood Dies 
Regardless Where You Come From 
Stay True To You & Live Life How 
You Want To 
'Cause That's How We Remember
