Image for the poem N.I.G.G.A


-Born into the color of my skin I was destined to fail
-A lifetime full of trials and tribulations hitting me like hail
-Growing up in the hood, I would have never made it out alive
-Just another nigga deprived, fighting to live and strive
-The monster in me contained, waiting to be unleashed
-Devouring the lies and feeding the beast
-Just another nigga in a white mans world
-Getting dirty looks because the color of my girl
-Jobs turned down, interviews never given
-I'm just a black man trying to make a living
-In a world where color still matters and the only color is white
-Proud to be black, from the country where life started so bright
-In their eyes I'm just another nigger
-Trying to make it to something bigger
-My brown skin is what ignorant people consider a curse
-I consider it a gift, glad I was this way since birth
-I see the look in their eyes, the fear when I walk by on the street
-They know I'm strong, and their weak, but they won't admit defeat
-This is a white mans world, government, law, social living
-Always taking from the people instead of giving
-We're ghetto, we're loud, we're obnoxious,everything about us wrong
-But we were a peaceful nation living good and growing strong
-I'm just a nigga living in a white world and I see from the inside
-Their true colors, the evil under their skin, makes me want to cry
-A powerful people who has life easy, fed with a silver spoon
-But us "niggas" learning and we'll have our day real soon
-I'm just a nigga to everyone, I no longer care
-I will have my justice if or if not its fair
I'm just a N.I.G.G.A. what are you?

   This one's for you big bro <3
