"Living Graffiti"

People of a higher standard of living
See us as to being Graffiti
A stain to society
We are the nobodies
Unless we shooting
And snatching souls from bodies
Than we’re televised
To be the
Bold Print
Top News
Late Night Special
The Breaking News
Only than we are important
Only than we get your attention
Only than we are WANTED

We’re America’s 3rd World

We are the embodiment of the struggle
We stay in labor
Sweating
Straining
Steadily trying to push
Push
Push
And give birth
To our on revolution
But we always seem
To give birth to miscarriages
Again
&
Again
Pushing empty baby carriages
Of where a little piece of heaven
Was suppose to sit
We fail at producing Life
But succeeding in taking it
Stealing and killing it
Selling it to the devil
And not giving a fuck what he does with it
As long as we get a few dollars in the pocket
Its all cool and dandy
We’re done with it
Let Lucifer have fun with it
We live in hell so we try the make the most of it
Trying to seize our own blessings
To kill our daily stressing
We are the dirt poor
24/7 on the grind more than tony hawk kind
Trailer park trash kicking it
Drug infested
Project living
Urban neighborhood doing no good
Just to live good
That live in the shadows of poverty
We dream off trying to reach the stars
Like Apollo 13
But our dreams fail to take off
Left to fight wars
Fighting nightmares
Without arms
Confiscated
Smuggled in a suppressed society
We are the twisted
Misunderstood
Misfits
That only fit in where its unfit to live
The tarpits
Slum villages
Roach infested
Rundown apartments
But hey a homie
A home is a home
As long as the ceiling ain’t the sky
We’ll do just fine
We are the living word of the streets
We define the hardships of reality
We are the bloody calligraphy
Spelling it out clearly
Just by living
That we are a stain to society
BECAUSE WE ARE INFINITE
We are the nobodies
BECAUSE EVERYTHING STARTS FROM NOTHING
..So one day well be somebodies..
We are urban society
THE ART OF THE STRUGGLE
…the revolution in process…
We are the Ol Mighty Middle Fingers
The rebellion to bring light
To the unborn generation
Declaring Independence
Signing the walls with our John Hancocks
Graffiti is our poetry
Our expression
….us….
We are living graffiti
The tattoos that represent the art of the struggle
Someday we will get out
Someday we will escape
AND
WE
SHALL BREAK THROUGH
Our mind is our muscle
The revolution will breathe
Through the mouths of the living graffiti
That is we
That spells it clearly
In bloody calligraphy
Of our soul agreement
That the day shall come
Where we shall be free
