My Family

By GB

Me & my girl, we’re having a baby, so now I have a family to provide for
The mission is to get outta here early, capture success, regain what I lost, and a whole lot more

Those two mean the world to me, an’ I’ll go to the end of the earth for them
One is my future wife, one is my soon to be son, and both the two are more valuable than any diamond, jewel, or gem

Also I refuse to let any harm come to them by any fool, joker, or clown
An’ I will never forget that—there is no way I’m going to let them down
‘Cause they give me strength, and without them I’m nothing
A husband & a father—now that’s something

So when I get home I’m getting on my hustle the legal way
No more streets for me ‘cause when I come home, I’m here to stay
Gotta get a nine to five, nothing but job hunting for me
Dope boy no more, working man is all I can be

I’m going to be in my son’s life, and no more having my girl up worrying & waiting by the phone for me to call an say I’m alright
I’m going to be the one taking him to school in the morning, at work in the day, and in the bed next to her at night

I’m just going to carry myself in a manner so manly
‘Cause there is no room for failure,
And I’m just going to be the man I’m supposed to be
For My Family

I’m A Father

by C.R.

When I was out there, I didn’t know

I was a father til a few months ago

My mother told me

But I still can’t believe it

Because now my little boy got his father in a jail cell

And I don’t want my son to live in my footsteps

Or even get a taste of my crazy life

That involves drugs, gangs, etc.

If I would’ve known that I got a son

I would’ve been home right now

Trying to be someone and support him

And teach him what’s right and not wrong

Not like how my father taught me

Now that I’m away from my little boy

That’s about to be one in four days

Got me feeling like s***

Because I missed his birthday while I’m incarcerated

I know when I get out

I’ma try to help my son and his mother out

‘Til I get his custody

I’ma help him out
