Sometimes i wish
I know that this question raises all kinds of issues
in my mind, and this question is do you believe
in Christ? Because i believe that what we expierence
and ah and its not being talked about openly enough
was pure evil.
Sometimes i wish this world was just a crazy
dream, sometimes things arent what they are meant
to be, or what they seem.
Sometimes i wish this world was one big dream
so many tragedies, life threatning disease in
reality who can we blame for these things? So
we pray for the families and the souls of the
people shot dead they cry, roaming through the
halls of the schools at night. My homie
Joseph in Texas, 14 years old police took his
life at his front door. Maybe humans have
converted into a beast. Can we really point
the finger at just one thing? Is it a sign
of the time or just the beginning i pray
to God to help me keep living. Jealousy
and envy and so much hate, newborn babies
thrown in garbage cans every day.
In the lobby of a hospital a young girl dies, no
money to pay so she pays with her life.
How many times must we ask ourselves why,
and how many times must we watch our children die?
Remember the times we were united as one growing
up as a child life was always fun. Time have
changed and its been for the worst. Trials and
tribulations that we face of course, time to put
our foot down lets get to know our young ones
before the next tragedy becomes the realest one.
1999 this year is half was over. Lessons not learned,
how your learning i couldve told ya. Maybe this
happened for a reason only the Lord knows why. And
this is for us to open up our eyes cause death awaits
us at any given time. My love goes out to those
whos souls rest tonight, and all we can do is just
ask ourselves why? Wish this wouldnt be all we can
do is pray and cry.
Things change for the wrong we cant go on this long.
Hand in hand right by your side, i love it then
and no more cry so if i was to go to tonight, ill
pray that youll be alright. One Lord one might rejoice,
one soul unite one voice.
Pray for all of us, Father let us not take
things for granted, and please let us count
each and every one of our blessings Father.
Now generation X is what they call it whys that?
Is it because this is where it all ends at, to
go to war we dont need to be over seas. Its been
declared out in the streets, gangs, thugs,
moving drugs, government officials, blackmarket,
Is this why you gave us the right to bare arms? To
hit armagedon head on? Read between the lines its
Genesise, and now the youth just dont smoke weed,
they got things like man made methaphetamines
never letting the young souls dream. And whats
to do? When our youth is being mentally,
physically, sexually abused. How do we change
when its all put in our brains, money, sex,
power, the year 2K. And everyday i watch
the news it shows me how
close we are to Judgement day, and
so for its all worth i Pray.
