Try to Understand

Try to understand we are people everyday no matter our skin color…

We hustle hard and try making a living each day. Just because you have more money than me doesn’t make you better. Just because you don’t have two nickels to rub together doesn’t make you a loser. Just because you were raised in the church doesn’t make you a saint. Just because you were raised in the hood doesn’t mean you didn’t graduate.

Try to understand I have a life to live too…

The life of someone you don’t know always has a story behind it. The life of someone you do know might have a tragic scene aside it. The life of someone you don’t know could have death or happy endings. The life of someone you do know could have forgiveness while it’s mending.

Try to understand what I’m saying is my own perception…

I was told to act this way and that; and to learn to not blow it. I was only taught what my mother or father were given and show it. I’ll continue to make my decisions as the person I am. My past is not my present I will take a stand.
