Keep your heart in the hustle

Sister oh sister, The fire it burns

The one they spit, on what you think you're worth

Mister oh mister, respect shall be earned

The lies they spin, give directions to turn

.... Keep your heart in the hustle

And away from the hurt

 

Brother oh brother where is your shirt

The one they took, as you lie in the dirt

Yonder oh yonder, with your dreams do not flirt

The truths they told, give new life to birth

.... Keep your heart in the hustle

And away from the hurt

 

Rythm oh Rythm, these streets they beat

One and a two step, so careless and free

Wonder oh wonder, but do not rehearse 

Constrict did cause, The bubble to burst

.... Keep your heart in the hustle

And away from the hurt

    almost a cathartic, reading experience
    I laud, the empathy you imbued into your lines
    thanks for sharing
