My childhood dreams

Jigzaw pieces of puzzles confusions I feel like OJ without the murders of humans Once a great athlete for those to look up to Now sitting low waiting for death to approach you The guns of the young strapped like security blankets Mistermeanor crimes combat those without turrets Who cares how I spell as long as the messages true You college bound guppy get your degree in the area of fool As you waist time deciding in life "what am I to do" I wouldve got a head start in life shining shoes Living up to the reputation that comes with skin color I thought based on society life would come easier Only to find the true meaning of hard work is killing me I gave up on what used to be my childhood dream To rule the world with my energy and natural plea Now I am drawing the lines on my wrist to cut it free As life chuckled and took care of my false pride Lovely errands of work got lost like my tribe The dreams of many go wasted when you grow up Find out life is tougher than Dr.Zuess promised us For Green Eggs and Ham must be a fairytale I found out when they served the same siht for food in jail As I scribbled the days left to serve on the wall I read that Superman in 1993 finally did fall Even the one who could stop a speeding bullet died Whats that to say about me and my constant crys I guess I better give up on my childish dreams To free the world of racism and polluted screams I better get back to work somebody just threw up Hopefully they leave a tip so I can save it up And pay for my child to go college like you Maybe his dreams wont crash hard as mine did so true
