Opposites Attract (Hollywood + The Ghetto)

Eyes heavy,
Busy sleeping,
Ignoring signs,
Success,
Miraculous questions,
Dreams,

Cowboys and Indians,
You gotta’ be Indian,
Cops and Robbers,
Disney Princess,
One in hundred ain’t European,

Pop star,
Rapper,
BET,
MTV,
STD,

Basketball legend,
Home-run King,
Hall of Fame,
Walk of Shame,

Enjoying life,
Price-tag,
Sketching,
Jump-roping,
Bubble-gum,
Hot Lava Tag,
Racing,
Doorbell ringing,
Ding Dong Ditching,
No snitching,
Counterfeiting,

Graffiti,
Curfew,
Street-lights,
Momma’,

Older days,
Playground days,
Double dares,
Name doesn’t matter,

Stood 5 foot 6,
Long locks,
High heels,
Booty shorts,
Thursdays,
Small dress,
Curves,
Mascara,
Eye shadow,
Blue lipstick,
Caramel complexion,

Eyes distant stars,
Tongue game,
Hips,
Fun,
Sinful,
Unforgettable,

Minutes,
Hours,
How long,
Playful games,
Restless nights,
Smoking,
Daily ritual,
Joy,
Happiness,
Fantasies,

Sleeping,
Waking up,
Disappear,
Part time high,
All-time low,
Pleasure,
Happiness,
Unconditional love,

Girls holding lemonade stands,
Boys playing ball,
Sun-up 2 sun-down,
Magnifying glass torturing ants,
Fire department fixing fire hydrants,
Daddy participating,
Promoting tea parties,
Mothers watching athletic games,

We speak,
Green grass,
High fences,
Million dollar mansions,
Hollywood,
The Ghetto,
Different places,
Same situation,
Boys playing GTA,
Girls wishing DD’s,

What happened?
God,
Where did He go?
I ain’t confused,
Brothers searching,
Sisters praying,

Born,
Raised,
Project living,
Never re-building,
Tearing em’ down,
Happiness,
Where did it go?
Million dollar dreams,
I ain’t preaching,

Families searching,
Homeless hoping,
Children crying,

Understand?
Dirt roads hold green grass…
