The Dream

by Kojo Din Sekou

they say get a piece of the pie.
I ask why?
Would you eat a plate that wasn't prepared for you?
You look at me like what I say ain't true.

A piece of the pie; what does this mean,
You act so ashame.
This is no game!

You must have a plan;
When they passed the pie,
You were less than a man.
A nigga to be exact; so don't try
To get a piece of their pie.

Don't chase the dream
Built on lies and deceit.
It wasn't meant for you,
Caught in a battle, with no retreat.
Be real to yourself! This is true;
However, they'll try to cheat.
Don't get a piece of pie; the lie,
It ain't sweet.
