“The Grind” #LunchBreakPoetry #NSFL

Dedicated to everyone in the struggle. Fight the resistance. Don’t give into self-sabotage. Overcome your environment. The World is YOURS! Conquer it. 

 

What would you do just to get out the Hood?

Would you challenge yourself, would you dare to be good?

Could you ignore the critics, and those that don’t get it?

A million fucking opinions, but you’re the one that’s living it.

 

Shut out the noise. It’s just you and your boys.

Fuck these non-believers. Just keep up your poise.

Keep doing what you doing. Don’t hear what they say.

Everybody falls in line once them checks come your way.

 

This the Grind. It’s your time.

This the Grind. It’s your time.

This the Grind. It’s MY time.

Bout’ to make the world Mine.

 

Told them I was a lost cause. Just so they could fuck off.

Sacrificed for FOUR YEARS. Come back and pop off.

They don’t feel my pain though. They don’t feel my pain.

They don’t feel my pain though. They don’t feel my pain.

 

Nights I went hungry…Loyal to the game.

They laughed in my face.

Now Remember My Name.

…They laughed in my face. Now Remember the Name.
