I can relate to the struggle

I have been where you are now, I know how life gets
depressed by your situation empty pockets
and every thought you entertain contains illegal means to get green
for this American dream

I can relate to that stress I know that times get hard
I started out hustling  and latter learned to rob
and my squad for the most part were misunderstood
young dudes confused looking for man hood


 I found this in my old file cabinet I sure it has to be at least 10 years old
