by Kima Malik Hamilton
I was worried sick I had both of my hands on my head
I was talking to God, I know he is hearing every word that is said
They?ve got ?Foot? laying here
And they?re telling me that he?s gonna be dead
He?s got these tubes in him, and this is how he?s gonna be fed
The nurse is running back and forth she?s about to wear a hole in those Keds
The s?- they?re giving him is really going straight to his head
When he opens up his eyes all I see is red
Your point is proven Lord
I see who is in charge
You are the boss
Some days I sit and meditate on all the things that I?ve lost
And still losing
Your precious temple I?ve been abusing
I beg for your forgiveness Lord, I just got confused when
I got out in this world running ramped with my few friends
I found out the hard way those crabs really weren?t true friends
Lord, if you spare him, I?ll tell what I?ll do then
I dedicate my life to being one of your true men
I?ll start a revolution
I?ll die ending mind pollution
This is my mission, I accept, there?s no rebuking
From the heavens I heard a voice that said to me ...
Well Kima, Let me warn you
There?s going to be people trying to harm you
Everyone that is smiling is not your friend
Some will scorn you
You will be crucified
But that is no reason for you to hide the man that I have made
Stand 6 foot 3 and unbreakable
Anything you want to do in this life your capable
If it make sense, it?ll pay rent
Why even worry?
It?ll happen all in due time
Why even worry?
The road ahead is both clear and blurry
As for Foot he?ll walk, he?ll talk, You?ll see
You just don?t forget this promise to me
And later that night ...
About 3:33 in the a.m.
Been done praying for about an hour
My head?s a leaning tower on my hand
I?ve read about the power of this man
So I know that any second, a miracle is bound to happen
I caught myself napping
So I stood up, stretched and started smacking
On some Now and Laters or a Chico Stick
Because at that very second our eyes met
I knew that he would be fine
I saw that it would take time for him to regain use of his body, but his mind
And from that second I have lived for the cause
So when you see me communicating through street jargon
Understand I am only holding up my end of the bargain.
