Tony - Poem by Tony Avila

you see i made it this far
luxary i desire but i really don't need
money inflated in my pockets
i just want to learn and say have a good day
familiar to these streets when things get rough
count my many blessings and not all in one spot
sleeping in many of my classes
i get bored easily that's a reason why i'm verbally rapping
crash my vechile and one of my dawgs is dead
i scribble most of my inner thoughts in my head
pushing a dead end job
generate my thoughts quicker than a pusher selling rocks
ghost in some sessions
quicker than lighting when stickup kids want what's mine
