You Got To Find A Way To Survive Because They Win When Your Soul Dies.

“Baby, don’t cry I hope you got your head up. Even when the road is hard never give up.”  -Tupac

We are all survivors in this journey of life.  We take different paths.  Fight battles.  Celebrate victories and lose a few too.  We struggle through heartbreak and pain and yet still find the heart to love again.

Lessons are learned through mistakes and experiences and the saving grace is forgiveness.  It is not easy to forgive then let  go…  Forgive and remember the lessons of the experience then let it go to find true peace.  Forgive those who have hurt you then forgive yourself.  Forgive yourself for the mistakes you have made.  Forgive yourself for the disrespect you tolerated and for not loving yourself enough to Expect respect.  Once you have forgiven.  Challenge yourself to CHANGE.

Your life will never be the same.  Don’t fear being stuck or broken in a bad place.  You were knocked down by an experience and maybe a little shattered, but you can pick up the pieces and create a beautiful mosaic.  Your flaws and life experiences make you Beautiful.

Take the time you need to grieve and mourn all you believe you have lost, but don’t let the struggles and hard times get you down.  Pray and always hang on to HOPE because life is full of hidden blessings and God will carry you through.  Dust yourself off, pick yourself up, and keep moving forward.

And always remember to:

BE REAL.  BE TRUE.  BE YOU.

“Baby Don’t Cry (Keep Ya Head Up II)”

[2Pac]
I feel you {uhh} .. (baby don’t)
but you can’t, you can’t give up
{Hey.. 2Pac what?}

[2Pac + H.E.A.T.]
Baby don’t cry, I hope you got your head up {Outlawz}
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby don’t cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up {Keep ya head up}

[2Pac]
Now here’s a story bout a woman with dreams
So picture perfect at thirteen, an ebony queen
Beneath the surface it was more than just a crooked smile
Nobody knew about her secret so it took a while
I could see a tear fall slow down her black cheek
Sheddin quiet tears in the back seat; so when she asked me,
“What would you do if it was you?”

Couldn’t answer such a horrible pain to live through
I tried to trade places in the tragedy
I couldn’t picture three crazed ni**az grabbin me
For just a moment I was trapped in the pain, Lord come and take me
Four ni**az violated, they chased and they raped me
Even though it wasn’t me, I could feel the grief
Thinkin with your brains blown that would make the pain go
No! You got to find a way to survive
cause they win when your soul dies

[2Pac + H.E.A.T.]
Baby please don’t cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby don’t cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby don’t cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up {never give up}
Baby don’t cry, I hope you got your head up {never give up}
Even when the road is hard, never give up
Baby don’t cry

[Edi Amin]
Uhh
Forget him girl (forget him girl) he ain’t gon’ never change
ain’t no hater but that ni**a lost in the game
After the bright lights and big thangs
he probably could loev you, but he in love with the struggle
Everyday, his mind on gettin mo’ (gettin mo’)
and never your feelings, he’s chasin millions fo’ sho’
Uh oh (uh oh), now you bout to have his baby? (dayamn)
Another wild-a*s ni**a that’s gon’ drive you crazy
You got too much, mo’, livin to do – I’m spittin this to you,
cause you deserve more than what he givin to you (that’s right)
Beautiful, black, precious, and complicated
A new millennium dime piece, so fine she
got em all stuck standin still when she come through
Baby take a little mo’ time, love’ll find you
And show us the sky’s blue somebody other than me
gon’ give you everything you need, feel me?
{Don’t cry-ahhhhh..}

[2Pac + H.E.A.T.]
Baby don’t cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up {you’ll be alright}
Baby don’t cry, you got to keep your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up {you’ll be alright}
Baby don’t cry, I hope you got your head up
Even when the road is hard, never give up {keep your head up}
Baby don’t cry, I hope you got your head up {never give up}
Even when the road is hard, never give up {no no.. ohhhh}
Baby don’t cry

[Young Noble]
I’m tryin to do all that I can, from jump
Now you losin, you was choosin the wrong man
Dealt the wrong hand, you was young and beautiful
Lost and turned out, what you let that ni**a do to you? (Damn)
I knew her since elementary, she blew a kiss to me
Wrote me a note in crayon, wantin to get with me
We was kids, now she got three kids
They see their father e’ryday, and they don’t know who he is
Seen him last night, homey roll a E-cla*s
Mad cheese in the stash, still a deadbeat dad
I bring her, Pampers and food, just to stop through
but those, ain’t my seeds, nuttin really I could do (nah)
I feel pity for you, you ain’t even his wife
Seventeen with three kids, locked down for life
Shoulda chose me, she bout to O.D. from the pressure
Hell nah I won’t let her {BABY DON’T CRY}

[2Pac + H.E.A.T.]
