Lyrics from Jill Scotts rap in Golden Days, by Kem
What exactly, my dear, are you clinging to? Some propaganda stating youre going as far as youre going to? That your skjes are finite and limited? That your growth is an impossible dream, that your future is inhibited. Oh please!! They have been shoveling them lies since the 50s cant nobody decide what your life can move through!!! This is YOUR time and YOUR challenge. What is it that YOU want to do? Sit and be still and not shine the way your life was meant to????
Oh, I pray that aint true!!!! I pray that aint true!!!!
Oh please, dont fall in the abyss because something negative once ruled you. Please! Understand Im from where you are and Ive got to fight my demons too. Please! Dont give up because somebody broke your heart or some things fell through.
This is LIFE. You owe it. Life does not owe you.
An obstacle is a thing that impedes or blocks ones way. You can climb overyou can dig underyou can chip through it you can go around ityou can move it. you can ignore it!
But you CAN do it! YOU CAN DO IT!
