A New Path

I'm bored with nothing to do.

When I can be on the block chilling with my crew.

Right now I'm hidding behinde my words.

Knowing that one day I might die by this sword.

I grew up in the streets.

Trying hard to run and hide from the heat.

Ducking and dodging  bullets I can not be beat.

But I switch my path but still using my mentality from the street.

Cause right now I have a different hustle.

In school using my brain power I'm in a different struggle.

Trying hard to excape from this street war.

But yet i find myself taking shots after shot at the local bar.

My soul is aching my heart is bleeding sometimes life is too hard.

But I will not stop fighting cause I'm determined to go the whole nine yards.

    This Is Great. My Brother Was In The Bloods. Even Though He Found A Way Out The Crips Are Still Commin' After Him. Your Gang Doesnt Define You Though. Every Guy In Every Gang Started Out Just As A Kid Who Didnt Really Have Anyother Way. Just Looking For Belonging. Not Many Of Them Make It Out Alive. Not Many Of Them Get To Turn Around Their Lives. I Really Hope You Get To. Good Luck. Love And Peace. Boo
