Tupac Shakur

And 2Morrow

Today is filled with anger
fueled with hidden hate
scared of being outcast
afraid of common fate
Today is built on tragedies
which no one wants 2 face
nightmares 2 humanities
and morally disgraced
Tonight is filled with rage
violence in the air
children bred with ruthlessness
because no one at home cares
Tonight I lay my head down
but the pressure never stops
knawing at my sanity
content when I am dropped
But 2morrow I c change
a chance 2 build a new
Built on spirit intent of Heart
and ideals
based on truth
and tomorrow I wake with second wind
and strong because of pride
2 know I fought with all my heart 2 keep my
dream alive

    The principle of today depends on ur spirity activity set by ur thought and the fate which is made by U. Tomorrow is not sure yet, but can be set by UR thought for it. (Report) Reply

    This poem reminds me of someone i know that is struggling with his position in life, i think he enjoys it, but then hates it all at once. I hope he hears the words of Tu pac that he listens to so much, and then hears the cleat message of a gangsta that is a true poet. This poem is for you Aram. (Report) Reply
