Tru Gangster

From Caged Buttafly by Maisha M. Durham (author's profile)


TRU Gangsta

Hypothetically you're portrayed as the one to fear...
In reality your mind is warped, thoughts unclear,
Utilizing the strength you have to enforce an unknown creed...
Etching disgrace, and contempt in the young minds you breed,

Gangsta is a label young mind idolize,
So blinded by notoriety they don't realize...

A TRU Gangsta moves in silence, not heard or seen,
They mean what they say and say what they mean.
A TRU Gangsta is out to help up lift and encourage,
Not out to stir up trouble and talk useless garbage...
A TRU Gangsta has to drive to do better, move up in life,
Instead of standing still, with no future in sight...
A TRU Gangsta helps those who follow their lead,
It's about feeding their minds not their greed...
A TRU Gangsta doesn't try to see and destroy each other,
Their goal is to reach out and uplift their sister and brother.

I trust no one to lead me, for I will not follow... I know the path you take is wide not narrow.
