We live in a world where it is hard to love one another.
We are all made in the image of God
But instead of giving a helping hand, we kill our brothers
Analogies are dangerous, actually they're deadly
From Emmett Till to Oscar Grant to Trayvon Martin to Jonathan Ferrell
they all sing the same melody
Steadily America has set equality by its own rules and its own pace
Any person that seems to make something of themselves and try to head "home"
The umpire send them back to 2nd base
1 step forward and 2 steps back
But even equality has taken a step back because this no longer just applies to blacks
This mentality has even trickled down to the kids
So when it comes to school or life, a "damn" is something they don't give
Those who say they aren't afraid to die, are usually afraid to live
So they strive for mediocre, welcome ignorance instead of dreaming BIG
Undedicated teachers also don't help our augmentation
Because the most important thing they lack is patience
There's nothing wrong with teaching English, History, Science, or y=mx+b
But also teach me something that displays its value to me
Not just how to fill-in the blank or circle the best answer given.
....What I truly need to survive are role models, self-esteem, virtues, facts about life, and intutition
So instead of teaching me a+b=c
Numbers that mean nothing to me
Now what if "a" equals you and "b" equals me
And the solution was filled with endless opportunities we could "c"
So imagine a world we're all together and "Heaven on Earth" is a place where we reside.
A place where we all strive for the best we can be and hold our heads with pride.
A place where blacks and whites, war and peace, even love and hate stand side by side.
A place where no one has to die, and no mother's with their son on a t-shirt have to cry
Because to be honest I want to be alive even after the age of 25, become a man of wisdom, grow old and die
A place where we as humans can love and live happily
...Now that's a perfect analogy
