The Struggle

Intro
What you know about the struggle, ey.
What you know about the struggle nigga.

Verse 1
What you know about food from the prama stove?
The pain from going to school with no shoes, stepping stone?
Being told you got a bright future everyday when every night you be sleeping in the darkness, no lights!
You just pray that mama got a plan for a meal,
Cause daddy don't wanna bother he ran away from his kids.
Now is you and your sisters, you got nothing to eat,
You look up to your brothers but none of them got the keys to success.
So you prayed that one of yall make your mama proud someday,
Your brother sacrificed his lil sister on a Sunday.
The money coming in now, the fridge is never empty.
That niqqa never sleep every time his demons angry.
He knows how to please them for them to not appear,
But he cannot make your lil sister's ghost disappear.
He got the money and the power but he lost his soul.
He's tryna reconnect with God cause he's dying slowly.

Vearse 2
Now you looking for a job they say five years experience.
You went to school you paid the dues the devil got surveillance
On top of your head, always planning ahead.
He stole your job from the spirit realm.
And now he wants you to pay for it.
How, by accepting him as your lord and savior.
How, by worshiping the cross facing down.
He's calling you his child just to lure you to his side,
But he always dance on the sound of your cry.
Your brother's money faded with his death after suicide.
He couldn't stand to see your late sister everywhere he goes.
Mom's getting sick and no one got a medical aid.
So you think that prostitution is the way of escape.
But lemme tell you something girly, you don't wanna be those typer girls
that use their bodies as a ticket to the finer things.
A little bit of patience and prayers will pave the way,
You just gotta keep your faith in a safe.
