GENERATION

 THIS GENERATION , IM A SHAME TO CALL MYSELF A YOUTH . YOU DONT OF TO BE BLACK TO ACT GETTO , YOU DONT OF TO WHITE TO ACT CIVILIED , DONT OF TO BE SMART TO PASS A TEST , DONT OF TO BE DUM TO FAIL A SEMESTER , DONT HAVE TO RAP TO BECOME A STAR . BE KNOWN FOR THE GOOD AND NOT BECAUSE YOU BEEN AROUND THE HOOD , DONT BE A FOOL AND NOT GO TO SCHOOL , BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU CANT RUN AWAY . DROP ALL THE DRUGS AND WEAPONS IN THE STREETS , LEAVE THEM IN THE CONER FOR THE DEAD BEATS. PRAY FOR THE ONES WHO HATE YOU  , THE ONES WHO HURT YOU FOR TOMMOROW YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE . CAUSE IN THIS GERNERATION IM A SHAME TO CALL MYSELF A YOUTH , YOU DONT OF TO BE BLACK TO ACT GETTO , DONT OF TH BE WHITE TO ACT CIVILIED , WHAT YOU ARE TO BE IS YOURSELF .
