People Called Me A Thug

People learn from things that happen to them in their life, they also have a chance to change it , if they have the strength to live it through.


When they look at me,
They see me from the outside,
I don’t think the inside matters to those who have never been challenged in life,
What do they look at,
The color of my skin,
Blue eyes, brown hair, , dreads,
My pants are hanging down, and you can see my underwear,

The past gave me false hope,
My emotions was out of control, the closet joy to me was alcohol and dope,
My mother told me, bad company corrupts good character,
Now I am all alone,
Sitting in a place that I have made home,
All the people who was cheering me on,
When I call they won’t even answer the phone,

I won’t be here always,
Staring at the calendar, and counting the days,
When people look at me, they say, look at that thug,
What is a thug, somebody, down and out,
Lost their way,
Stayed in sin to long, and trying to get back home,
Depressed, hurt, and no where to go,

I feel like my life is over, I have nothing to show,
Where can I go,
Even a thug, need love,
I fall my on knees, asking God to help me please,
Full of pain and shame,
I go to church, they look at me with discuss and hurt,
I ask God what to do,
He said, my child, I was rejected to,

Get up my child, I will show you the way,
I gave my life for you over two thousand years ago,
You have nothing to pay,
No matter who you are, or where you have been,
When you turn your life over to Jesus, sin can’t win.
