My Song

Just a young black male in this world of sin

Man versus man

I'm fighting from within

Got to stay strong, can't break nor bend

My whole life changed when my brother got locked up in the pen

The day this came about

All hell broke loose

Defiance all around, I didn't know what was the truth

Sister stressed out 

Mom done had enough

I come from a small city where everybody has it rough

So I got my mind right to become a better man

Because being successful and taking care of my family was my only better plan

You don't understand me

And you sure don't understand us

Mind rebuking evil

The devil gets no trust
