Wadling in painSeized by pity and overwhelmed with pain and trying very hard to be a good man
Predestined to fail by the system at hand
This world can not define me as a man
Too much sin, poverty, and disease to knock the biggest, strongest, man to his knees.
Lied to, cheated, abuse, and hurt, beaten, locked up, trying to eat without work.
Ambition extracted from visions of hoop dreams
Or tormenting our bodies on professional football teams
Taught to use drugs instead of learning how to cope
Emotionally sick, without resources of hope
Raped by our parents of all creativity's
Never suppose to look beyond what we see
Raised by a standard to work twice as hard
While watching their marriages all fall apart
