Choices - Poem by Pain Is Love 32588

I always hear people say that life is hard, but its worth it
If it really is worth so much why do i wanna give up so much?
I have faith but it seems like things are gettin worse

I've put everything I have in God's hands, but now who do I turn to?
Turn to for comfort, help, just someone that will listen
The person who I thought was my rock and my strenght is gone,

My family has turned their back and want nothing else to do with me
The one I called my 'friends', my 'Homeboys' my 'partners' are nowhere to be found
They all told me that they would be here for me nomatter what, and now I'm alone and cold

I let my temper get to me and I don't know that to do, for the rest of my life I'll be wearing these county blues
I was in the wrong hood and got called a stupid Nigger that went stright to my head and I pulled the trigger.

Where did I go wrong? When did I lose my path? I had so much going for me, how I have nothing
I was top of my class, and a beautiful and smart girl by my side. I was getting calls from the NBA ever other day, money wasn't a problem

Anything I wanted I got. And I gave my girl the world. I never did a single drug or had a single drink.
Maybe it was when I found my NEW 'Friends'. They did eveything I was I never would

Yet I let them infect my mind. they were a cancer to my brain to my common sense.
They had me do their dirty work. I shoulda knew because they all had 2 strikes each, But i didn't listen to my better jugdement.

I had the chance to walk away and go back to the life I had, the life that was so good
but I chose to follow the lead of an unknown felon. With two murders and a stolen car under my name I know that I will never see the sunlight again.

Now I see why so many people find the lord in jail. Now I am forced to grow old behind these bars
I winer see my baby girl grow older and my son take his first steps.
If I could only have back my last couple of days......
But I can't and its all because of the choices I made
