Sweetie Keep The Faith
I would try to do all that I can
Now she's done!
Got a son and it's all bad
Took a different route...
Dissed the people she called friends
Little self respect
Tossed it all in the hog pin!
The brother doesn't care...
Resenting his own son
The very definition of a kid if I know one
I seen him last night...
Certified nouveau riche
Homie bought a few elites!
Got a spot onto a beach
Getting plenty of money
But not a dime goes to his seed
And I'm not a hater
But homie's child is calling me
And it's sad I'm not even in the family
Baby needs to break away!
Up the faith and start some planning
I will do what I can...
Here's the baby milk and diapers
But I'm only a friend
Plus my lady doesn't like it
You have another coming soon
I hear it's from another too!
Some people are liars...
So I don't know if that was true
Haven't talked for minute but know I'm tripping from the news
You should do what you think is the best
I used to tell you stay strong
Keep the faith and keep pressing
Baby has to hold on...
Pray you're getting this message
Remember way back then?
The elementary testing
I would look onto your paper
All alone you were guessing
Still splitting my sides...
Pay attention to lessons!
And this wouldn't be a poem that I'd end with a question
I'm really hoping that you get your life together
Focus on a dream
Stay calm, free, committed and true
Live right, stand strong and fight the devil
Now I'm trying to settle
Young kids thinking like we were grown
Now we're having families of our own
If a brother can't respect you baby leave him alone
Time flies by quick
Couldn't see where it's gone
A bitter picture...
What else is really there for me to say?
Shoot for a vision but just be careful where you aim
Money and violence won't get you anywhere but slain
Be diligent sweetie
And don't forget to keep the faith
