Emotionally, I wasn't feeling so well when I wrote this so, I hope that y'll can feel my emotions in this poem. I tried to create a better flow for my rhymes because, Liz made realize that they needed it. I hope y'll like the poem.
What a poverty-stricken year!
It's a year where you're either on the streets
begging for a dime,
or trouble-making and committing crimes.
In this money-driven world, where evil unfurls,
if you got dough, then anything goes.
Money is only illegal,
if you got caught by the right people.
Look at O.J. Simpson,
He only won his case because, he had enough money.
And today, he's still a big-shot celebrity,
while we still ponder about Nicole & Ronald Goldman.
These days, I'm tempted to be bad
because, there's plenty of things I wished I had
but I won't be because, I rather be a somebody, than a nobody.
My fellow sister and brothers,
need to stop putting down one another
because the only thing you get with that,
is a sharp knife in your back.
Times is so hard,
that criminals are turning themselves in
because, they're tired of commiting sins
and staying locked-up in prisons.
In prison, smoking and selling drugs,
depending on one another for love,
still goes, right under the man's nose
people, anything goes.
My brothers need God
because, these prisons are too overcrowded
and nobody's doing a damn thing about it!
Times I swear, is too getting too hard!
We need a change
because, too much brothers wearing stripes
and smoking too much crackpipes.
It's time for a new life!
In the streets, anything goes
because, capitalism is pimps and h*es.
And it's sad because, in this world of greed,
if you struggling or want more, then anything goes!
