Be different

You can dare to be different as long as you keep it persistent
And if you don’t open your mouth who do you expect to listen
No presents on Christmas but still I remain gifted
I don’t know what’s out there for me but I can tell you what isn’t
sitting around sitting around dreaming, hoping, and wishing
Thoughts I use to envision of cooking up in the kitchen
Hit the strip and move it fast like I was Felix out here pitchin
This isn’t a rap song, just some words from a dreamer
My story is never finished until everybody’s a believer
It’s hard to believe that I turned into poet while everyone else carried a heater
I mean I tried to fit in, keep a blue flag in my pocket
Fighting at the local parties, girlfriend screaming “Someone please stop it”
Gun was in was in my face, life flashed my eyes, but he forgot to cock it
It was then I knew I chose the wrong life
Soon as I got home I cried the whole the night
Tears streaming down my face because knew it wasn’t right
And ever since then my ideas took flight
Why waste this talent
I took everything I been through I started to write
You can dare to be different as long as you keep it persistent
And if you don’t open your mouth who do you expect to listen
