'We Will Not Die Young'


In a world full of mischeif
Mothers burying their sons
Fathers not being in their lives
Families falling apart
Dreams destoryed one by one
Brothers rage
Sisters pain
Drugs betray the mind and
Guns corrupt the blood
I have seen the abyss
I have endured the choas
Something valuable to me was taken
And all I see is darkness
But I am my brothers keeper
I am my sisters keeper
But most of all I'm my families protector

Remember this deep down in your hearts
That you are not alone and
'WE Will Not Die Young'
