Breaking the cycle

They are generations of alcoholics
Addicts and abuse
racism, hatred and Envy
with every excuse
THERES mental illnesses
that will never be addressed
And family members dress it up
with their very best
THERE ARE SINS THAT THEY HOLD
AND SECRETS NEVER TOLD
AND THEY LAY TO REST
BUT WE ARE THE GENERATION OF SCHOLARS AND QUEENS
LAWYERS AND DOCTORS
AND MANY KINGS
OUR CHILDREN ARE
THE COLLEGE GRADS
YES WE HAVE
REAL CHEFS
AND DONíT †BE MAD
THE FIRE FIGHTERS
THE TEACHERS
AND SPIRITUAL PREACHERS
WE ARE THE MOTHERS
THAT WONT FOLD
THE FATHERS THAT STAND BOLD
NOT HOLDING
THE SECRETS OF OLD
WE ARE THE GENERATION
THAT WITH BREAK THE MOLD
WE ARE UPLIFTERS
WITH THE WORD HE GIFT US
WE ARE BROKEN AND TOKEN
TO SOME
AND WE ARE MEN AND WOMEN
WHO WILL NEVER RUN
WE ARE THE KINGS AND QUEENS
OF THIS DAY
ASIGN TO TEACH
TELL YOU HOW HIGH TO REACH
AND THE KNOWLEDGE YOU KEEP

WE RISE ABOVE ALL THAT WE KNOW
ALL WE KNEW
WE ARE THE GENERATIONS
THAT GREW
WE ARE THE ONES THAT UNDERSTOOD
THAT FAMILY WAS GOOD
AND WE PRAY TO THE INVISIBLE
GOD ABOVE †
SO WHEN WE SAY
THIS GENERATION IS MADE OF LOVE
AND NOT BLOOD
THIS WE SAY,
BECAUSE ITS TRUE
SO HOLD UR FAMILY CLOSE
CAUSE THIS IS WHAT
WE SUPPOSE TO DO.
