Wake Up by cedrick johnson

its like this,i keep having
crazy thoughts in my head
plus im stressing
because one of my brothers only a few weeks
from being dead
and it hurts
the pain a man cant describe
its like bullets hitting my chest
hard from the inside
so i find my self in my room
with tears flowing constantly
and on top of that
it got some people that want to bury me
why? what make them want to kill my mama’s child
i guess that’s the price i have to pay
for living my life wild
its almost to the point
that i want to give up
i even thought of saving up some money
and hopping on a bus
and go some where far far away
but this is no fairy tail
so i guess im stuck living my life
living my life in hell
i tried to forget about it
but the pain getting worst
i dont know why im cursed
i was bought up in the church
and somtimes i cry till it hurts
watch the tears fall and burst on top of all that
my daddy gettting sick
and it wont be long befor he hit the dirt
now how is dis possible?
to experience all this pain?
i just compare it to what Jesus
felt on Calvary hill and all of a sudden
that pain aint the same
just cause im sharing this
dont think im insane
im really laughing right now
at those who live life in vain
