To Tupac Amaru Shakur

2Pac I dedicate this to you because you taught me well,
About love, respect and gettin´ out the cell,
The one we all live in regardless who it is,
We need to be active in our minds and escape being stiff,
Never fall - keep on going,
No satisfaction in giving up – get strong be growing,
Let life, love and devotion shine through times so dim,
Whatever the situation is like that we are in,
An open eye for the world creation and awareness,
You gave me knowledge about focus and to fight for what´s best,
So I can only say thank you for fueling positivity,
And whereever I´ll be you are going to be a part of me.
