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
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
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
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

REST IN PEACE TO ALL FALLEN
