Don't Follow The Crowd

I remember thinking back...
There's a better life
See we can't expect to make it if we never try
If you see a chance then take it
Homie nevermind...
The calumny and hating
Wicked statements and the devil's lies
Black men we can do it!
Know you only need a mission and relentless pursuing
A relationship with God
From athletics to music
Don't forget about our Lord or your vision is useless
We are special...
And you don't need to prove it
Be sure you're not following the crowd
They don't know the Lord but He's knocking on their houses
Open up the doors!
Instead of plopping on the couches
Only He can save our souls!
In more danger than they know...
Satan made them think it's lame having dreams and chasing goals
Homie everyone is cool just as long as you are low
If you ever try to move up...
They're coming for your throat
You can trust because I know!
Homie this will never change
Ice or butter on a grill's flame still will melt the same

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
