Dear Mama


Dear mama,
you wont believe what am going through
but i got my head up just like i promised you,

every situation your boy has been dealing with what am i supposed to do.

Dear mama
though sometimes i dont understand this place
looking at the mirror sometimes i see a troubled face
whos gonna hear my cry
when the world enjoys wat am going through

still trying to find an answer why
i have to go thro all this

dear mama
am always trying to help the people out
but the same people are trying to take the food out of my mouth
seems like the little blessings i get the troubles i try to create.

Dear mama
In my brief life in this world i gave my all.
They say to my face they love me
but even before they know the truth, they are quick to judge me
thats all right keep talking
i gonna walk along the banks n keep walking
and reach for the sky, focus on the prize.


Dear mama
i pray for their families hope they pray for mine
there used to be a time they wished me well
they quickly forget i kept them out of cold
i extended my hand when they needed to be helped

to my bros n sisters
tell me why we cant get well along one another.
I pray to God to put us back together.

Dear mama
we need each other
especially in this world
God answer my prayer
n i hope you do it now.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
