My family taught me values
That you don’t have the jewels to hold.
Some had the chance to move but winced,
Others had a whole lot to prove but hoe’d.
Who moves are those?
Who did you see run and cower?
Devour and never give;
Scared of death but scared to live.
Was it your family or your friends?
Your circle is only as complete
As the people let within.
That you can’t even see who’s in it;
You’re living with no conviction.
I won’t say there’s shame on you,
But I know that you feel it.
Keep it real,
If you can.
