Seven o'clock I walk Into the doors of my high school, my black high school
Where People do whatever it takes to be considered cool
I walk into the bathroom choking from the smoke
Uhg I hate this school I complain daily
I hate the K-9s stiffing at our asses every week
I hate having the whole gang unit police force at our school
I hate the white principle referring to us black students as 'you people"
Im tired of constanly being on locked down
And most importantly im tired of the non believers
I may attend a school full of beautiful black people
But I refuse to fall victim to the system
I refuse to be another statisic
Of the young black mothers on welfare
Even though I was given birth to one
I look around a school full of hopeless black kids
Welfare Dependent Black kids
Fighting, Smoking, Black kids
Our teachers never gave a fuck so why should we?
They tell us they get paid weather we learn or not
Just a future in a cell
Because our sorroundings caused it
We are black
But we will not fall into your trap
Jail? no sir I have plans in life
SIx feet under? no thank you devil, I will survive
I will make it out this apartment
Even if it takes blood sweat and tears.
I scream graduadtion not incarceration.
