By Keon William
I’ve done been around the world
But my hood’s what made me tough
Seen some people sleep on me
Bet right now they’re waking up.
From where we ain’t play no games
If you did, they’d call your bluff
The ones who quack’D loud
Usually had to duck
I was born July 6
It was 1994
I’m the youngest to my parents,
After me there was no more
They say ima daddy baby,
But my heart is my mother
3 sisters and a brother
But my brother ain’t my brother
I know my parents love me, but man did they fight
It had even got so bad my mother stabbed him with a knife
I was only 7 and I seen it plain in sight
It drove me to depression and use to keep me up at nights
Seen my homie lose his life
Cause he won a game of dice
That’s why I don’t trust a soul
Guess it’s just a way of life
I’m direct, like a deposit
You want power? Gain knowledge
Being “dumb” was never cool
Let’s make it cool to go to college!
I think God gave me a gift, so that I can change the world!
Show them a better way
All the boys and all the girls.
We ain’t even scratch the surface
I must carry out my purpose
Know my name! Just know my name
So I know that it was worth it.
