Y'all tell em' to focus on school, keep ya head the books
and stay out of these streets.
But what is He supposed to do, when the Streets have him tripping over his own feet?

lurking around every corner,
confronted daily with His own eyes,
that's where He is meant to be.

The glamorized life of the Hustle,
You'll never know pain unless you the Struggle.
The same pain that causes them to shoot, but never aim.
what is He supposed to do when the streets are calling His name?

Y'all hold His hand and guide Him in the wrong direction, but then tell Him to do the right thing.
does this even make sense or is He confused by the bullet's sting.

Did you forget that He loves you,
that He wants to be accepted,
Gotta be just like You, even though you never said.
what are you supposed to do when the streets are coming after you?

Hiding in every shadow,
lurking in every crevasse.
Not a single OG could ever prepare us.

3 bullets to the chest. ringing in his ears.
blood gushing out black,
his mama screaming through her tears.

the Streets will watch you your whole life,
****** you up from home.
Do you how they Do you.
til most of You is gone.

Yea, times are tough
and this mentality is rough.
But what are you supposed to do, when the streets are after you?
those looking from the outside looking in.
These young black men aren't choosing a life that'll lead them down the road of despair.
they do not choose these situations, the situations choose them.
The battle between the streets and Young Souls is gruesome.
this is a battle of a nation.

We are living in a mysterious world

Some people would say ...
"You can reach the stars, nothing is impossible."
Some would say ...
"Don't waste your time in reaching the stars, It is impossible."

Some people would say ..
"Dream High, you deserve better"
Some would say ...
"Stop being ambitious, donT dream too much"

Some people would say ...
"It's just a test, don't give up."
Some would say ...
"It is not for you, let it go."

Some people would say ...
"Follow your heart, not your brain. Your brain is rude, it can feel nothing.
Some would say ...
"Follow your brain, not your heart. Your heart is a fool, it knows nothing."

People can give you advice.
But in the end , it's your decision that matters.

*If you will listen to this world,
you'll have no direction because ... *


*We are living in a mysterious world.
For all the person who have been played by LIFE .

Take a ride with me,
Give me your ear, your eyes;
Like stellar days of old,
I will tell no lies.

     You see my days weren't complicated,
When the rivers ran red,
    It was a bullet or the money,
Family gotta stay fed.

Your silent gestures cannot fathom
What was my everyday,
Like the hardened hollows of my soul,
I took my gun to the park to play.

    This was my life
From my chest into these words,
    Every link in the chain,
I am tied down by haunted verbs.

  Kindle old fires
And set your daily a blaze,
I survived with deep wounds,
   To the past I am a slave.

Give me my homiez,
All dead and gone,
Give a sip of that Henny,
I'll drip some on the lawn.

  This is me,
Just an old ****,
I'll remember the tombstones,
On bent knee I the marble a hug.

Today I am whipped
Among all the sorrows,
But being a survivor
Give me hope for all the tomorrows.

The westside,
Like a weary night *****,
No coming back, no coming back,
I can't take no more.....

Pick out a casket
And don't remember my name,
Anonymous me,
A Dedpoet who carried the blame.

Listen out for the sounds of the night
When the sky is finally deprived of all light
When I find the most inspiration to fill my page
Detonations of metallic shells tipped with senseless rage
They sound the time of the witching hour
And I lay in bed shaking, distressed and twisting sour

Someone must’ve told them streets were canvases
So they filled them with blood ink like I fill papers with stanzases
I think of all the boys extinguished by the streets
And the gun-toters dominated by their inner beasts
So I preach to thieves before I begin to face a fear of death
So many bodies lie in North Minneapolis, I’m probably next
So the lethal tech fills my dreams and my dreams become nightmares
Tried teaching Smith and Wesson lessons, but there's nobody that might care

So if nobody cares, then that’s reality and I’m gonna have face it
If the streets **** me, I may as well embrace it
I’ll deal with the gang scene better than you, I don’t need breathers
If gun violence don’t matter to you, it don’t matter to me either
Pop a chrome bullet at me, another innocent’s dome
Just do as the others do, you know what they say, “When in Rome”
A poem I originally wrote in the eighth grade. This is me rewriting it entirely off of memory.

I see you walking around
With your head held high
Like you're above everyone else
Because you're such a bad guy
That's why you got a tattoo, right
To remind us all you're dangerous
Well here's a news flash amigo  
You're as dangerous as my ****
laughing because I rhymed dangerous with ****

high school: thugs
Frank Ruland Nov 2014
Vermilion rivers flow into the mouths of street sewers.
Iniquity quelled with a volley of righteous lead--the
Gun's maw still smoking in your hand. Evil
Is as evil does, but tonight unhindered justice
Leaves its mark on an asphalt canvas.
Another firebrand is smothered beneath a
New brand of equity that will leave
Thugs, rapists, and murderers hesitant to
E**rroneously besiege another soul with taint.
I  keep  my  head  up,
lips  snarled  and  puckered,
teeth  show,
nose  high,
squinted  eyes,
you  can  see  death  in  them.

I  look  to  the left,
I look to the right,
now it's time to fight,
3-2-1 take flight,
we go all night,
keep my fist packed tight,
and if I lose I'll be back looking through my iron sight.

This  is  the  law  of  the  land,
dog  eat  dog,
tooth  for  tooth,
an  eye  for  eye,
****  or  be  killed,

I'm a killer with a blood instinct.
Came up in the mafia vicinage,
we live life this ain't no scrimmage,
live by Omerta it ain't no image,
living life without problems is a privilege,
when you start talking to cops you finished,
that's how we get down in my evil village,
nothing changed we all living vintage,
I can see you coming in with your gimmick,
don't try to test my limit,
I'm Popeye on steroids and spinach.

Rimani  persone  reali*.
This is how I've lived my life for a long time, this is how I was raised and how I spent my days, I'm a new creation now and am moved by love but in a world with so much hate I felt the need to reach out to you in the same position I was, and I put it all down so that I don't have to do that stuff anymore and now I am happy.

Ugh
Its that ***** goes walks
In see that she can't knock
Well no prob
I'll just smoke and get backed
you were always fake
For gods sake
For once don't be a sly snake
Slithring with a knife about to stab me
You like watching me be in pain
So , don't hate on me
Because it ain't free
Since when can a ***** be her with out me
Yes I blow o's and always French inhale
And ghost inhale
Now you can't see me
Catch me if you can
I'll Mr waiting in my van
I put in imna box so I don't need an Xbox
Hope u give me a membership
Or I'll brake u into 500 Lil *******
This is only one part/ demo of my new song
And this comes from my heart decaded to one of my most hated ex's with all my darkness with hate
