THIS WAS HIS FIGHT

He was tote'n them things
Not for the bling of the game
But the same type of hype…
Like the bag lady who didn't pack light
Despite of it getting in the way
This was his fight
Like the protection of condoms and guns
That wrapped fun in a minute or two
And no real joy when it was all through
Depression was worst than the last
A past around the metal of protection
That blasted and erected a recollection
Of sealed wounds...
He was tote'n them things
And looking for anything
To gain a high…like drugs and forty's
That brought many stories
Only narrated with I
Cause the first person affected was…… he
Searched for a way out
Looking at a drought of opportunity
Drowned by illusions for a quick fix
Just mixed up with….
Tote'n them things
Like dirty money and cell phones
That ring around the commitment
To receive false hope to cope
With everyday life….he…
Wife-d the pain
That married to the inside
Only to be hung up by pride…
From tote'n them things
Like the weight of adult responsibility
On his shoulders
And walking in big shoes
Was his folder of youthful steps
Tote'n them things
Wrestiling with is I.D.
He…knew his future was his fight
And Miranda didn't have the right
To offer his defense
His pretense didn't make sense
But God knew when he was
Tote'n them things
He was making a king
Who's crown of thorns
Were worn within…
But through the pain
God exposed he knew
And through the pain he grew
He now note those things
For the Glory of the King
