"Soul At War"
A good hearted child born was God's gift. And I belonged to a beautiful Black, Cuban and Native American woman, and a Black and & Cherokee Indian father.
Seeing the world at every wicked corner; A man stood tall with a heavy heart...
My life changed like a car battery in the ghettos of America, when my first trigger exploded in my right palm. And before I knew it, I was a killer, without a timer in the streets for my rivals!
Money touches the wrong hands, and you have chaos and gangsterism on the city streets.
I was retarded and unbalanced as a teenager. I was lost, and it seemed like no one had my back except my uncle Tyrone BKA Tee Mack. 'Cause at each and every corner I had to duck bullets!
My soul was lost, and so it was at war.
I feel trapped like prisoner's on chains 'cause theses crooked/racist cops keep killing our seeds.
Every time I look up, some black child is murdered due to a cell phone now looking like pistols!
Oh, hell; lets outlaw cell phones. The cell phone is responsible for young black males.
But you put that guy with the gun in prison, and he's reduced to protected custody...
I'm coming from poverty; to find my destiny is my destiny. And I will chase down my dreams like a wild horse in the dark!
My mother told me, that I was my father's son and, that guerrilla-blood runs through my veins. So I keep the tools to communicate my sins, to any and all rivals, friends and family.
When you wake up and remember a dream; that's life taking course in the unconscious mind.
The heart shall operate the mind or the body will decay and eventually be d.o.a.
My reputation is more dangerous than an African Americans with aids! So if in my dreams I keep being shot to death, what's a man to think??
A young Black American, trying to delete my felonies while still incarcerated; by organizing an incorporation like Capitol Records or Amazon!
I founded LA Prince Global, Inc. by releasing the first product; the urban novel Lucinda!
It's book one, of The Goddesses series; a 7-book series, to empower all women!
Book 2., will be "Griselda" and so on and so forth.
Anyways, I wonder at times; does my God really love me? Giving me 23 years for 2nd degree robbery, when the victims testified that I wasn't involved!
I was rail-roaded due to my skin color, and for the simple fact, I was armed like a militant. But out of this 23 year pressure, I was formed into a diamond! 'cause with LA Prince Global, Inc., I learned that, if I apply my business model to the urban book community, then the world, I'll be a wealthy man.
I told myself, I want to be a millionaire by the time I'm 40! And I want to be a billionaire by the time I'm 50!
I'll deliver the 7-Book Goddesses series first; then my clothing line, after I create a following with the first seven books.
From the clothing line, I'll have an agent take my movie scripts to Tyler Perry!
My soul's at war based on my past, and my futuristic thinking...
