Crooked smile


Brought into this world full of killers

drug dealers

crooked cops

i look around and there's no one to help

a would without heroes ?

how have we survived this many years ?

yall claim sports players as heros

but they ain't helping your single mother feed you

they ain't helping her keep that roof over your head

they ain't helping her buy the nice clothes she wants you to have 

he can make a nice fade away 

dunk of the year 

but is that really helping you ?

im not saying that they're bad 

im just saying it's time for us to become heros

and love eachother 

and protect eachother .
