~Quote: "People living like they got no mamma's"~ by I don't know or remember

Jay Z
Asked for a moment of clarity
But I need more than a moment to release all that's within me
Cause I've been around for almost a quarter of a century
And I still depend on my parents financially
No job
No life
And with all of this I'm actually
Trying to walk this earth happily
When in actuality
My roof leaks
My car squeaks
My windows are all drafty
My clothes are old
Can't afford to have a cold
And with all of this I'm supposed to be happy
I got classes I can't pay for
Phone that's been disconnected
Mortgage I can't afford
Yard probably infested
And there's nothing I can do
And I'm not through
Cause I got more that I need to say.

I'd given myself until the age of 25
To prove there was a reason to be alive
Something inspiring
Something profound
When all I've been able to find
Death, destruction and despair
People living without a care
When in a second it could be gone
Just like dust in the air
Stupidity has become infectious
Children have lost their minds
Greed and gluttony are the main dish
How long will it take for us to find
Out the rules of self preservation
Every species does it but us
"In God we trust"
That we can live a life full of sin
And still get in
And have all that's good bestowed on us
All because we want it to be
That's not enough for me
But I got more to say.

How am I supposed to be an adult
When I fear what my parents say
How can I make my own way
When I feel I have to obey
In an effort to please everyone
No one ends up happy
Life would be so much easier
If their opinion didn't matter to me
But it does
And that's just the space I'm living in now
Pretty soon I'll take my bow
And allow
The world to disavow
All knowledge of me
So then I may be free
Let me be free

You know exactly where the quote at the top of this came from.
Your favorite... The Black-Eyed Peas "Where is the Love?"

"What's wrong with world ma?
People livin' like they ain't got no mammas."
