They got their eye on the gold chain, I'm sayin' no way Jose /
Can't afford to rock my whole wage when my goals ain't /
Based around fashion sense, classy threads, so lame /
Even when beggars ask, I'm steppin' past, no change /

Shruggin' like I'm sorry, too focussed on my worlds agenda /
Get Rich or Die Tryin' isn't worth the effort /
Coz I'll never have a million and look where it got William /
A thirst for money where the plot killed him /

And I'm learnin' to enjoy life more /
Where cash doesn't rule everything around this shore /
Of course money is needed, but I'm fortunate here /
I'm not on't breadline struggling, suffer in fear /

Coz the rents due - more bills then red letters /
Tired of your tea being toast with red Leicester /
Aspire to dreams, keep hopes and they'll bless you /
Don't give up on yourself, you're not meant to /

Friends, family, shelter, warmth, hot food /
Health, sanity, clean water, a wash too /
If these are all that you've got you've been luckier /
Than most on the planet, that's God's truth I'll put to you /

Yet we're still gettin' sucked into a rat race /
Where material possessions are your class base /
Feelin' lucky coz of whats occurring right now /
And time makes the difference, change your thinking or it's lights out /

Don't you stop, keep on /
Pushing for, your goal /
Live for you and yours /
You can win, I know /

You shouldn't ever play the game to lose it /
Always put full effort into anything you do, this the only way to successes /
It takes time and nuff guesses but you'll improve and adjust methods /

And this involves the will to win /
Keep a hold tight as Silvikrin, coz things tryna fill you in /
Won't do if you're fighting like you should be doing /
And I use writing, it's a good influence, pushing through this /

Self-doubting me, a lot more before now /
Any thoughts that I've talked out can assure how /
It's advice for me, and when I can't do anymore thinking /
I just look ahead and walk, blinkered to ignore glimpses /

Of a life I used to lead, I'm in a better place /
With the lessons learnt, getting work and a better wage /
And that's only coz I graft hard for seven days /
If I need to, shouts to t'dole dossing renegades /

Those scamming who smoke, drink and celebrate this /
Everyday fully knowing that they're rent is paid in /
Those who struggle to cope, sink, so many payments /
On the brink still squinting at their mini-statements /

And life isn't fair, that s'why I care less /
Than I used to do, worrying and gettin' there stressed /
Told you now I'm only caring for my circle /
And understand my patience is a virtue /
