Boys To Men

A kind kid with a slow mind 
Was not so smart at being kind 
What his life turned out to be about 
Life is not what was thought 
With the wars he faught 

Hanging out with the cool kids 
Breaking all the rules, missing it 
Dissin it-the in-crowd is all about faking it 
Fast cars, fast dreams, fast schemes 
Is not what it seemed 

Caught stealing, gang banging, cheating 
Found deceiving smoking weed hi-retrieving 
Selling drugs not what is made to mean 
Gang wars fallen short on a street-creed 
Kicking in doors, breaking windows, an initiation deed 

And you thought he was real cool 
Jumped like a fool, A junkie after you 
Friends dissed you and now its not so cool 
You have become the fool for breaking the rule 

The setbacks hustling crack in debt 
The suicidal thoughts race through your mind with regret 
Got suspended, reprehended, cuffed for slacking off 
You're locked in prison, a life sentence 
Made a statistic, with three strikes you're out
