We Are Only Human

By IS

We as people always make mistakes
Not understanding the consequences until it’s too late
And never thinking about the risks that we make
Until that day comes when it’s too late

We are only human
No one person is perfect
Wishing we can take back what we did
Knowing it wasn’t worth it

Hoping and praying for a second chance at life
And forgiven for something that won’t happen twice
We are only human

Why consider me a monster without even knowing me
Looking at me from my mistake by continuously scolding me
I feel a great deal of remorse for my mistake
But when looking into your eyes all I see is hate
All I see is punishment and the quality is great
We… Are… Only… Human…

My Life

By BP 

 My life
 Living it bad and doing it wrong
 I need a change just like that poor man on the street
 In and out this life
 It’s like a wish
 I wish and I wish for a change
 Losing my friends and family
 For that change I wish and I wish
 I can change
 Seeing my mother cry
 And losing me and my life
 And mama losing me
 That change
 That change
 Got that change

Make it Happen

By SK

Every time I look in the mirror I ask myself
Do I like who I am?
Sometimes I hate myself
And want to be a better man

Overall I love me
And only want to change a little
I on the road to success
And I’m stuck in the rubble
I see myself on BET, MTV
Being as great as I can be
It starts with a thought
Then a plan
Then action
But it depend on who you are
So make it happen

Play Time is Over

By GB

If you knew me, you knew everything to me was a game
Took nothing serious, being responsible was considered lame
I would call myself a man, but nowhere near grown up
Complete juvenile, and no idea what was really up
Up the sleeve of reality, I didn’t even see the real world coming
The real world hit me hard, and the punch was really something
If it wasn’t for the punch to wake me up
I’d still be walking around acting like a toddler
The punch was my girl is pregnant, and I’m going to be a father
Everything that was a joke became real serious and fast
I want to be in my child’s future, so I got to leave the old me in the past
Cause being a good father has nothing to do with luck
Not even if you got a four leaf clover
Clowning around has been cut short, the game clock has struck 0:00
So, Play Time Is Over!!!

Dead and Gone Away

By GB

Old habits die young, that’s what they say
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, but in what way?
How do we reincarnate ourselves for the best
When it’s truly difficult to pass the test

Not the S.A.T. or the end of year finals, but the test of life
When we’re sent back to the real world and gotta provide for our kids & wife
My focus is to change my ways, and completely better myself
Stop worrying about dumb things like what people think, fly clothes, and having the most wealth

The time is now not later to get on the right track
‘Cause once I leave this federal jail, there is no looking back
That also goes for the streets and the negative influence around me
I gotta leave those things in the past, or otherwise in my son’s future I won’t be

Don’t want that, so getting my shit together is a must
Not trying to lose him or his mother, nor their love & trust
So once I am fully rehabilitated, the new me will be here to stay
Then I’m going to say goodbye to my old self, ‘cause the old me will be
Dead and gone away
