SEED OF JOY / LIFE IS A STRUGGLE


My mind flashed back to the early moon
When I was just a sperm cell in the fallopian tube
In the midst of a state of triple darkness
Going through a struggle so I could exist

Avoiding everything that came within my path
As I watch other sperm cells get ripped in half
One out of a million completes the job
And for the other sperm cells the womb is a graveyard

Though my travels I had to pass through
A lot of hassles and violent battles
Cuz’ inside the womb I was a foreign object
I’m like a new nigga walking through the projects

Trouble, everywhere I turn
Damn it’s a struggle just being a sperm
Cell, so I attempt to prevail
I guess the womb is the first stage of hell

Now here I am in the danger zone
My head and my tail, my 23 chromosomes
But it can’t be that bad cause my dad
He could have used a body bag

And if so then my tomb
Would have been the trash can inside my mom’s bedroom
But they was fucking, they was true to this
And here I go on a mission to the uterus

A million motherfuckers tried to race ahead
But I was the one that fertilized the egg

Life is a struggle
Life is a struggle
Life is a struggle
Life is a struggle
