Tell me, is this how we are to live?
Where drugs, weapons, and sex hold or generation captive
When did education start being a choice instead of a requirement?
Does no one crave for the power of knowledge, has it become ancient?
Little girl ,why do you paint your tears with lipstick and concealer?
Is makeup now your main healer?
Little boy, why do you associate with such violent friends?
Pushing, stealing, lying, smoking, is there no end?
Father, why do you turn to alcohol to ease your pain?
Can your family not do the same?
Mother do you not hear your child's cry?
Have you grown so weary that you cannot reply?
Brother killing brother
Daughter slowly destroying mother with the same mouth she helped create
Do their actions no longer dictate?
Oh Generation! How you have gone durange!
It's time for change!
Pick up the books and put down the gun.
Be an example for your future son.
Cover yourself and have respect!
You're beautiful, God made you perfect.
Open the windows and put down the booze
To that lifetyle, say you adieus!
Find a real job, stop being lazy
Drugs should no more be your only source for money
Graduate and go to College!
There is so much delcious knowledge.
Kiss your mothers and hug your fathers
Kill the animosity and share the love and unity
Generation I still have I have high hopes for you
Lets end the old and start a new.
