letter to my youth
Dear youth,
There’s no telling what you can do
Don’t worry, everyone won’t understand you.
As a human being
You’re not like the rest of them.
They want the worst for you
Because its best for them.
Honestly, you show to much modesty
Its odd to me, they don’t deserve it
Obviously. at times, you doubt your ability
And easily give in to negativity
It’s no conspiracy its clear to see
because you show self pity, instantly.

But the main problem is
you tell people you’re okay
when it’s the opposite
you lost confidence
but you have to be an optimist
your single,
it’s not the motherfuckin apocalypse.

You’re rare, and I don’t think anybodys aware.
Wipe those tears
It’s time that you face you’re fears.
if your too scared
You’ll get left behind and no one cares.
Yea, I’m only telling you because I was there.

You might have to walk through the dark to shine.
Often times, niggas will try to off your grind.
searching for success then have no doubt you’ll find.
Just be ready when it’s your time.
