Misconception

I see you around here with your nose pointed in the air,
Like you're better than us cause you get to be out there.
You don't know our stories, and probably never will,
But some of them would definitely give you a chill.

Not all of us are incarcerated because we're bad people,
I didn't do something that's considered all that evil.
My sister was a crack addict and selling herself,
My family didn't have money cause we're not made of wealth.

Going without lights and not having enough to eat,
Sometimes not even having shoes to cover our feet.
So I decided to do something and robbed a convenience store,
To help my sister out, so she didn't live like that anymore.

Wouldn't you do the same if there were no other way?
Or would you rather let her suffer and begin to pray.
Now here I am going on 9 years strong,
I've lost 9 people in my life, including my mom.

So tell me, do you know what it's like to feel this much pain?
I seriously doubt it, so please change your mind frame.
