Another Stereotype a poem by Glen Davis

Another stereotype is something I can't be,

nowadays school ain't interesting

so most of us dedicated to the streets,

tears running down yo face cause you found out

yo homie deceased, man ... that's how it is in them cold streets.

We should be in school everyday where they educate

but the district neglect us so most youngins out here

tryna get cake. Money first, school last

that's the mindset that we got

but at the end education is everything but a young black man got.

You think you flexing cause you trappin on the block

but a college man with a degree really be having that knot.

You at the top, you got it all keep yo circle tight

cause the ones you call "bro" be the ones that be waiting on you to fall.

Success is the key so don't give nobody a spare,

for this generation I am truly scared.
