    Lyrics

    To my unborn child
    To my unborn, child
    In case I don't make it
    Just remember daddy loves you
    I did everything I could to make things good for you
    So don't worry about it
    To my unborn
    You know daddy loves you

    [Verse 1]
    Now ever since my birth, I been cursed since I was born to wile
    In case I never get to holler at my unborn child
    Many things learned in prison
    Blessed to be still living
    Trying to earn every penny that I'm gettin'
    Reminiscin' to the beginning of my mission
    When I was conceived and became to be in this position
    My mama was a panther, loud
    Single parent but she growled
    When she witnessed baby boy ripping wild
    I went to school but I dropped out
    And left the house cause my momma says I'm good for nothing
    So I'm out, since I only got one life to live
    God forgive me for my sins
    Let me make it and I'll never steal again
    Or deal again
    My only friend is my misery
    Wanting revenge for the agony they did to me
    See my life ain't promised but it sure get better
    Hope you understand my love letter
    To my unborn child

    [Chorus]
    I'm writing you a letter
    (To my unborn)
    This is for my unborn child
    (To my unborn child)
    Wanna let you know I love you
    Love you
    Wanna let you know I feel this way
    (To my unborn)
    I think about you every day
    (To my unborn child)
    I have so much to say

    [Verse 2]
    So complicated to escape fate
    And you can never understand till we trade places
    Tell the world I been guilty to being anxious
    Ain't no way in hell, that I could ever be a rapist
    It's time to face this, cold world on a good day
    When will they let the little kids in the hood play?
    I got shot 5 times but I'm still breathing
    Living proof there's a God if you need a reason
    God believe in my own fate
    Will I raise my kids in the right or the wrong way
    Dear mama I'm a man now
    I wanna make it on my own not a hand out
    Make way for a whirlwind prophesized
    I wanna go in peace
    When I gotta die
    On these cold streets
    Ain't no love, no mercy and no friends
    In case you never see my face again
    To my unborn child

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 3]
    Dear Lord can you hear me?
    Tell me what to say to my unborn seed
    In case I pass away will my child get to feel loved
    Or are we all just cursed to be street thugs
    Cause being black hurts
    And even worse if you speak first
    Live my life as an outlaw
    What could be worse
    Cause maybe if I tried to change
    Who am I kidding?
    I'm a thug till I die
    I'm a ride
    maintain, touch base
    eat lunch
    in plush places
    regular criminal oasis awaits us
    If there's a heaven for true thugs
    I'll see you there
    And I'm sorry for not being there
    Just know, your daddy was a souljah
    Me against the world
    Bless the boys and all my little girls
    To the Lord I'm eternal
    Resting in peace
    Please take care of all my seeds
    And my unborn child

    [Chorus]

    [Tupac talking]
    Please take care of all my kids
    And my unborn child
    To my unborn child
    This letter goes out to my seeds that I might not get to see
    Cause of this lifestyle
    Just know your daddy loved you
    Got nothing but love for you
    And all I wanted was for you to have a better life than I
    Cause I was out there on a 24 hour 365 grind
    When you get to be my age you'll understand
    Just know I got love for you
    And I'll see you if there's a ghetto in heaven
    If there's a ghetto heaven I'll be there waiting for you
    Heh heh
    Take care
    Run wild, but be smart
    Follow the rules of the game
    I know sometimes there's confusion
    Rules of the game is gonna get you through it, all day every day
    Watch out for these snakes and fakes
    Snakes come a dime a dozen
    Work hard
    Study
    Get your mind right
