    (To all the youth in the world that thinks
    nobody understands... Well I understand that)

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    I grew up as a 70's baby
    Brought up in poverty and sin
    Makin' jokes at the crazy lady
    Never cared how she was dealin' within
    I knew all the words to
    Micheal Jackson's album as a kid
    And when it came to the biggest crusher
    No he wasn't my man
    At the age of seven years old
    A strange thing happened to me
    Before I even saw
    My life had flashed before me
    And I've got the mark to show
    And it became a thang of beauty
    So I gotta let you know
    That my life, that my life

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    Now mama's workin' hard all day
    And she said this before she left home
    Take care of your little brother
    Have the place cleaned when I get home
    All these priorities
    Me and Tanya had to learn to be grown
    But at the time for me
    Being grown had seemed so lone
    Woke up and I'm seventeen
    With nothing going for me
    Except the fact that I sing
    You know it hurts so much
    From all the sights that I've seen
    From abusin' the hole in trust
    You probably couldn't take some of things
    That I've lived in my life

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    It's hard and the street's a jungle
    (I'm telling you, I'm telling you)
    Especially with your pretty colors
    (I'm telling you, I'm telling you)
    So stay low and keep it humble
    (I'm telling you, I'm telling you)
    Black women hold it down, keep your feet on the ground
    Black men keep searching and you'll be found

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

    In this world of continuous bullshit and full clips
    Seems all we have to pass down is being useless
    Broken homes, babies all alone, parent's never there
    No food, no clothes to wear, anger everywhere
    Ain't no values being taught, no productive thoughts
    Jealousy rules the world, take shit at any cost
    Gotta change our state of life, keep it worth livin'
    God gave us voices to speak and that's our way of givin'
    It's so much bigger than the furs and the jewels
    What about encouragin' the youth to do well
    What about givin' back- what about unifying
    Shit we all black- get it together
    Everybody's got their trials and tribulations
    Learn to change the negative to positive situations
    Don't hold the lessons that you learn
    Pass it on and except the blessings that could earn

    It's been hard for me
    Trying strugglin' in the streets
    But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
    And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at
