L.I.F.E. (Lil Mama)

L is for the liars that have surrounded me I insurities my head down in these streets F my future there isn't 1 E Eternal hope This is my life I wake up every day to the same old foster mother I ain't got no pictures of my mother She was a crack fiend nothing like pot mother She didn't make a difference if though she Could've I'm a shame shame of my life Pappa cracky sold me twice On a late night stopped by And look in my eyes Bags from the tears that I've cried And the people who lied Telling me that this is my place Phony & try smile In my face But I should have known something Was rare smiled when she opened the mail Kept a nice mink on her back Meanwhile I got a goose & my goose got patches I'm so mad this is me I'm so hurt this is me So I shouldn't be But imma be alright cause I'm pregnant by a dude & he not 16 But I like his style & his whipp is mean My mama told me to find a man to take care Of me & he does buy me things but he beats on me I come to her for a little advice So I show up with a black eye Telling me to know my place so I stay Waiting for my body phase Telling myself it just a little pregnancy phase When all in reality I'm being discourage & disrespected And under the pressure & I don't really blame the man I blame my mother for not teaching me the different types of man Life could never understand my side of story being that it's so consistent 18 years And 9 months developing raised in a prison I guess I'll never make a difference Born orphan with nothin to offer is the least Of my problems Parents like deja vu My stomach is starving 3 months pregnant idiotically I departed So ashame of a life that was started I ask god if he can take the pain away He made me in denial of every word I pray Every day it's the same old no talent I'm feeling like My life is unbalanced no telling what tomorrow going look Like yea right wrapped up in a fast life for a sudicial Act why is my life set up for a failure I can care Less with the people say to ya'll we break out In rage venting all the hurt inside who am I To tell you what you fail to realize the voice that you hold Within you the voice that you are The Voice Of The Young People!
