Unimaginable Heights


Prefabricatings of an onlooker -his surmise of me-' a looser'. No silver spoons or bright blue moons. In his own country, hood-Burrough he's conceived into poverty and pessimism. He illustrates agonized realism. Years of schism and racism has he known. A rap sheet of tattered down hand me downs and lies...

He's jus been had by the political scheme pinned down like the untamed. Do you know my name? Freedom remains by far unconstrained, our
