*i Was Raised By* - Poem by DANIELLE MARTIN

* i was raised by*
money hungry, food grubbin

*i was raised by*
black nig**s that are selfish
and self-center a-wholes
kickin me out
beatin me down
and hung me out to dry

* i was raised by*
a women with a alcohol proublem
that can't control it
tellin me i won't amount to shi**
just puttin me down

* i was raised by*
myself wit no pa
in and out of jail
walkin in and out of my life

* i was raised*
carrin & takin care of a child by myself
wit no father
livin in a dump
wit no one to care
for me or my chid
wat type of life is this

*i was raised *
wit no love and no care for myself
runnin the streets
gang bangin & goin to jail

* i was raised by*
a pack of dogs who sh** on me
and leavin me to clean it up
like im nobody

* i was raised *
with no intelligents
not knowin how to read, spell, or write
gettin all F's
and kicked out of schools

* i was raised*
sexually abused
wit no one to comfort me
or tell me i have nothin to be afriad of
and keepin me out of situations that bad

* i was raised by*
no one on my side
helpin me get though hard times
it was hard to leave
my worries behind
not knowin if someone commin to harm me
or put me in a dirt hill
with no attention of livin

* i was raised *
learnin how to kill myself
and those around me
or anyone who knows me

* i was raised by*
(myself that's how i was raised)
