Letter 2 My Unborn

Will my child get to feel love / Or are we all just cursed to be street thugs? / Cause bein black hurts
To my unborn child
To my unborn child
In case I don’t make it
Just remember daddy loves you
To my unborn child
To my unborn

Now ever since my birth
I’ve been cursed 
Since I’m born to wild
In case I never get to holla
At my unborn child
Many things learned in prison
Blessed and still livin
Tryin to earn every penny 
That I’m gettin
And reminiscin
to the beginnin of my mission
When I was conceived
And came to be in this position
My momma was a Panther, loud
Single parent but she proud
When she witnessed baby boy 
Rip a crowd
To school, but I dropped out
And left the house
Cause my mama say I’m good for nothin
So I’m out
Since I only got one life to live
God forgive me for my sins
Let me make it 
And I’ll never steal again
Or deal again
My only friend is my misery
Wantin revenge for the agony 
They did to me
See my life ain’t promised
But it’ll sure get better
Hope you understand my love letter
To my unborn child

[Chorus] [Tina Jones]
I’m writing you a letter
This is to my unborn child
Wanna let you know I love you
Love you
If you didn’t know I feel this way
How I, think about you every day
I have so much to say

Seems so complicated
To escape fate
And you can never understand
’til we trade places
Tell the world I feel guilty 
To bein anxious
Ain’t no way in hell
That I could ever be rapist
It’s hard to face this
Cold world on a good day
When will they let the little kids 
In the hood play?
I got shot five times 
But I’m still breathin
Livin proof there’s a God 
If you need a reason
Can I believe in my own fate
Will I raise my kids in the right
Or the wrong way?
Dear mama I’m a man now
I wanna make it on my own
Not a handout
Make way for a whirlwind prophesized
I wanna go in peace
When I gotta die
On these cold streets
Ain’t no love, no mercy
And no friends
In case you never see my face again
To my unborn child


Dear Lord can you hear me
Tell me what to say
To my unborn seed in
Case I pass away
Will my child get to feel love
Or are we all just cursed 
To be street thugs? 
Cause bein black hurts
And even worse if you speak first
Livin my life as an Outlaw
What could be worse?
Cause maybe if I tried to change
Who I’m kiddin?
I’ma thug ’til I die
I’ma rider man
Touch bases
Eat lunch at plush places
Regular criminal oasis awaits us
If there’s a ghetto for true thugs
I’ll see you there
And I’m sorry for not bein there
Just know your daddy was a soldier
Me against the world
Bless the boys
And all my little girls
To the Lord I’m eternal
Restin in peace
Please take care of all my seeds
To my unborn child

[Chorus] (repeat to fade)

[over chorus]
To my unborn child
Please take care of all my kids
My unborn child
To my unborn child
This letter goes out to
To the seeds that I might not get to see
Cause of this lifestyle
Just know that your daddy loves you
Got nuttin but love for you
And all I wanted was for you 
Have a better life than I did
That’s why I was out here 
On a twenty-four hour 365 grind
When you get to be my age
You’ll understand
Just know I got love for you
And I’ll see you up there in the ghetto heaven
Cause ghetto heaven gotta be there
Haha, take care
Run wild, but be smart
Follow the rules of the game
I know that sometimes it’s confusin
The rules of the game is gonna get you through it
All day everyday
Watch out for these snakes and fakes
Friends come a dime-a-dozen
Be an individual, work hard
Get your mind sharp
Trust nobody
