2pac And Mr. Hughs

This one is for one of the greatest poetic minds of the 20th century and the greatest lyracist to ever rock the mic; Mr. Langston Hughs and Tupac Shakur...
Born into two different worlds and 69 years apart; but both dealing with similar struggles and shared a bunch of ish thrown in their way to set them up for failure from start...
One grew up during racial turmoil and dealt a father that doubted his own sons dream; and the other born into a political uprising and a mother who was in and out jail for what she believed...
Both couldn't see what they meant to do was with'in classroom walls; so both of em ran with their talents and put their talents to pen and verse, and said to hell with em all..

Whether it was written whithin hughes 'life is fine' or 'pacs me against the world'; if you pay attention you get the same message from these two great minds and understand how they blessed the world...
It took cancer to take down langston hughs; and he was honered with an area in harlem named after him and then put on the news...
And five shots couldn't take down pac; till the lord took him too early and called him on his past dues...
So as a writer dealing with my own inner demons I hope I can show as much strentgh as hughs and pac; and maybe when my time card gets punched and Im lucky enough to make it to heaven ill be sharin a bottle of hen with the boys up top.

    What the hell is this absolute garbage? Do you even know how to spell, or use proper grammar? You say in your biography that you've been writing since the seventh grade. Are you kidding me? This writing is the kind of feces that horses excrete: It's huge, it's disgusting, and it just doesn't look good. Take writing classes before you come back on this website.
