From the Streets (For Tupac Shakur Contest Sponsored by: Raul Moreno)

Looks like
A hoodlum?
Tattooed and hard –
Judge not the surface!
Be like God, look inside.
Let love flow; watch joy abide.
Tupac’s rhyming brightens sorrows.
Rapping beats to famed masterpieces.
Singing the wisdom he learned from the streets.
