*VERSE 2* -- car leaking oil plus I need a mufler now that ain't no way to live for a maybe mother, off to the clinic how'd I miss my cycle? and my family wonder why I'm acting spiteful, test came back shhh negative, I can't see my self depending on my relatives, was a close call, but yet still, need to call my aunt to help with my electric bill, and got no rest too much stress mumma called said they found a lump on her breast, must be payback for the wrong I did, God please let her live to see her grandkids, yeah I got 1st, yeah I cried tears and so what I ain't been to church in 5 years, only the man above got he right to judge and if my prayers go unanswered I won't hold a grudge

*VERSE 3* -- Shanda, Cayle, Coca, Nini... your big sis got your back if you need me, 1 day you might see my on TV, but don't ever think that you beneath me, coz life can make you or break you but even through the hard times stay grateful, as for me I never took a handout, dealt with the situation never ran out, I'd be lying if I said I never had doubts a lot of times I was down, feeling left out, was on the outside lookin in, while other people seemed to have the perfect blend, just tryna figure what I need to do to win, don't wanna end up saying what I coulda been, so lord please I hope that you can hear my cries, this is the letter to you signed Ebony Eyez
