If You Don'T, Don'T Start - Poem by Dexsta Ray

I know it gets rough
Seem like faith is not enough
When it seem everything that you dreamed
Will not become
But a message to all troubled folks
Who live it broke
I don't care where you're from
Don't be dumb and choose to smoke
It was a mistake
Slowly puffin' my life away
But now that I do it
Gotta say
The price you pay isn't nearly as worth having fun but staying pure
As death always comes to the ones with plans
Sure as you can withstand circumstances
Control your life
Tread on the tracks of the path we know as righteous
Life is just as hard as you'd make it to be
And trouble doesn't last long
You could take it from me
Because I peeped the outcome at the earliest stage
The burnin' rage
Turn a page from the surliest phase
And yes I did avoid the venom but still wasn't a phenom
It took a minute to get to the point I'm living
Like the rose
That sprouted from the concrete
The struggle had painted a picture
Only some see
Held up the hustle until it made my palms bleed
Still stuck in a habit
That only makes my lungs scream
