they complain and complain
about how too many youth are joining gangs
and our culture being dumb
but is it our fault that admissions is numb?
they say get your head in the books
and stop fooling around
but it's not that simple
we got our head in the clouds
wishing we could go further but our wallets, man.
we have to keep one foot on the ground.
we all are disappointments.
disappointed for what we weren't chosen
regardless of the fact, we weren't appointed.
but no one ever mentions how the better life,
came with a higher price
and how can they question why we don't attend a higher education
well.. it's too damn expensive
so how can you judge me for what i'd rather keep
it's either a book or food to eat
how can you judge me for this economy?
The first 13 years are just a taste, and then it's gone.
it's up to us to pay..
and it leaves a sour aftertaste.
ignorance is bliss i guess.
money is in my pocket and i'm not feeling the ignorance yet.
