The sun rises and sets on another day of disgrace,
For a world filled with
Drug dealers, crack heads, hookers, and children
Without a place to call home.
But they warned us
About the world.
It isn’t easy!
The temptations of lyfe hold you,
Hold you back from your dreams.
Just ask the former college student who was valedictorian
But flunked out of college because he was too busy partying,
Or the little Pentecostal girl
Who thought she met the man of her dreams
Not knowing when the test said pregnant
He would up and leave.
That’s why I spell life with a “y”,
Because the big question is why?
Why are people quick to notice what we do wrong,
And not help us do right?
Why when we do wrong we settle,
Like we can’t turn that wrong into a right?
But hey I guess that’s just a part of lyfe with a Y.
