LIL MAMA

LIL MAMA - college

rate me

Now that I think about it

I was always takin away from my father

Or he was always takin away from me

It's probably why we so close now

Ya kno

We been starvin so long in these crazy ghetto streets

And they say we're so wrong for the way we try to eat

How long will he struggle

I gotta grind jus to eat now

I gotta eat jus a live now

So I gotta live my life this way

I stretched and yawned

4 years from a newborn

On a charter bus

Filled with stranged humans

Besides my mother nobody seems anxious

Though we on our way to visit a college campus

We roll up freshen up at a food concession

Can't talk to strangers

I wanna ask em questions

Saw a woman cryin

Boy face the fence

I don't wanna go to college

If it causes this

Back on the bus still analyzin vibes

Turned to my moms excel asked her

'why you cryin? '

She said because I'm happy

But I could tell she lyin

And since lyin was a curse

I sense storytellin

Her eyes focused on a object long enough they tingle

That's when she reached into her bag because her phone was ringin

She said 'I accept'

I'm still puzzle piecin

I knew my pops was on the other line

Lonely singin

Soon after we roll up to these gates

Barbed wired up

Men standin in the entrance armed up

With a close eye on us

We enter the buildin

Got checked by the women who starin

My mother

Pull out a card with a picture of her face on it

Two papers with our names on it

They identify her

They lookin at me

Me my confusion of the journey

Thorugh these walls we go

Before the next one opens

The past one must close

As they check for proper clothes

My mama so prepared

For this mini battle has chose

Finally we reach our final destination

My poppa placed in a seat

Facin me

No women in his class

Jus men who never laugh

And when they see they family

They sing

So I begin my investigation

My elbow on the round table

My palm at chin

I'm lookin at him

Ask questions like

'how you been? '

'when you graduatin? '

Time was up got pulled away

Kickin and screamin

Tears came to his eyes

But never fell in front me

Got old enough to realize

Must've fell up under me

Bein locked away in prison from your family

Tryin to find ways for us to eat

i sing
