"My Day N Age"

“MY DAY-N-AGE”
By: Randy Morgan

Growing up in a sick world
Where its cool to hit girls and flip girls
And you known if you smoke blunts and pop pills
They on your jock if you blinged up and rock grills
The streets love when you hustle,murder don’t think twice
When you degrade your own race for a low price
If its violent and sinful its worth it
But I’ll attempt to rework it
No saint holy,holy but I know God
Could write about the scriptures and still go hard
Cause in the end will your judge be a man or a woman so I careless if they impressed
If they repped out cause I stepped out
When that day come prayers won’t save some
Living the same way I’m use too my sins keep piling
They going reach the roof soon and I’m only 18 so it’s too soon
When is it that cause babies have babies
And can’t raise the babies, so babies have no homes
No domes, have yo heard bout a kid getting murked now the kid on a shirt
In a casket in church ain’t even reach puberty stage
Enough to cry, cry, cry but tears don’t help
I know I felt the pain of losing your mom as a younging
Pop’s ain’t around he dumbing waiting on that day to arrive
That dad going come and make it alright
But dad here now he ain’t make all right
That just a taste of what we face in my day and age
Where you know you won’t make it working minimum wage
And the block look like a way out
Cause school take way too long to pay out
So they enter the field then they enter the jail
Some learn before its too late, some learn when its too late, new faith

    So sad but so true>>bad habits don’t reverse themselves>>I love my patience and the way i stay bossy, making sure that no one gets over>>but I only show all this respect to my ego because it saves me from being fearful that ima get a “man” who doesn’t value me…so i value myself>
    I wait for the day when gilrs sport the lady in themselves and where men don’t just call themselves men, but act like it!!
    we are all someones teacher, peacher, or best friend>>male of female…if you a fuck up-then thats just what you are>>>if you not out there trying to do good…them this piece right here is all about what you stand for!!>>>i wish all readers would speak more about this stuff!!

    Again u speak so elegantly and this work should have more comments, but that said it won t straddle my stride I’ll stay in step either way. As far as men being men I stand for what I believe no matter what the next person thinks of it. I live to satisfy myself first then someone else because I’ve come to know that no matter how you go in life someone will still try to get over on you if they can.
