New Generation Rising Pt, 2.

From The Sound Mind by Floyd Smith (author's profile)


This is not a motivational speech
No, this is not a hip hop rap
This is not a state of the union address
So I could care even less
If the half of none of you stand up and clap

This is a public service announcement
Coming to you live and direct from California Death Row
and inspite of whomever attempt to denounce this
heres a little something all of you should know

You are the New Generation of incarcerated inner city youth
I like to say, Generation Blessed
Blessed with an opportunity to prepare this nation
with a solid, stronger younger generation rising next

Just take a look around you
You're surrounded by all of them
So if you are not spending quality time
with those minds between the ages of 9 to 29
Then you are absolutely a part of the problem

New Generation Rising
being accountable for oneself
New Generation Rising
experiencing accountability with someone else
New Generation Rising
everybody reaching towards our youth
New Generation Rising
not going anywhere without you
