Someone to tell them
They ain’t the only one
Only one fucked up
with all the problems
Made up for the world
To be insane and drives
You hell crazy before
It teaches you things
You ever need to learn
For your growth process
To be complete, making you
Therefore a person ready
To embrace their true self
In every situation out there
For if you can’t survive the downs
How do you ever expect to know
How to fully enjoy ups in
The moment, ’cause that’s
What matters the most in the end.
I’ve issues on my own, Homie
Just like you and I can’t take yours
Pretending I ain’t get any. not anymore.
