And Tomorrow
By: Tupac Shakur
Today is filled with anger
fueled with hidden hate
scared of being outcast
afraid of common fate
Today is built on tragedies
which no one wants to face
nightmares to humanities
and morally disgraced
Tonight is filled with rage
violence in the air
children bred with ruthlessness
because no one at home cares
Tonight I lay my head down
but the pressure never stops
gnawing at my sanity
content when I am dropped
But tomorrow I see change
a chance to build a new
Built on spirit intent of Heart
and ideals based on truth
and tomorrow I wake with second wind
and strong because of pride
to know I fought with all my heart to keep my dream alive

Personal Response
The thing I liked the most is how he interacts with these kind of situations. He lived and grew up through this kind of environment and he wanted a change and he went out to do something about it. He basically gives others hope and helps them get out before its too late to do anything and to always keep your head up even through the toughest of times.
