We live in a time where external pressures are constantly being pressured on us. Weather it is in school, at home, or within your friend group! Remember to live righteously, Damian Marley wrote a song called “Pimpas Paradise”, which explains why “trying out” drugs is horrific. Understanding that alcohol, cigarettes, Cocaine, and many other harmful substances have no reason to be in your body is the first step to this slogan; ” Live Righteously”.

Luckily I am apart of a generation of strong minded teenagers and young-adults that denounce the ingestion of unnatural substances. Such as, abstaining from white sugar and white bread. These foods also know as ” refined ” are not good for your body. It is even as simple as drinking coffee without cream or sugar, enjoying the bean while it’s still nutritious!

Leading simple changes in your life such as your diet can avalanche you into an overall better lifestyle. Think ahead to the future ask yourself weather or not it’s was worth the diabetes, the cancer, or the acne. Make changes now before its to late.

In a world of calamity and confusion find the light within yourself and in your religion to stay strong.

Remember to always,

Live Righteously!

Damian Marley:

And yes y’all, you now rocking with the best

Black Thought from the legendary Roots crew in the flesh

I split up in here with the brothers from the Marley family

Creston–we gon’ say it for y’all

She loves to party, have a good time

She looks so hearty, feeling fine

She loves to smoke, sometimes shifting coke

Hey, she’d be laughing when there ain’t no joke

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was now

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was now

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was

Cause coke was a thing that once she first try

Was once a blue moon to once a blue sky

Now she’s wondering who else wants to go buy

She don’t got no money and wants to get high

Story sounds familiar,

Like born to be wild but she sillier

Not quite the same, but she similar

A waste of my sarsaparilla

Used to look good in the videos, now she look hideous

Now it’s broken crack pipes with lipstick traces

Walks the cold nights red district places

She seen more hotels than my tour suitcases

More male customers than Old Navy’s

She love lime light more than John Swaby’s

Seen more miles than a Rent-A-Avis

She don’t slow down then someday maybe

She lost and can’t find her way to safety

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was now

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was now

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was

Check it out

She keep her head up in the space like a satellite

Because she got an insatiable appetite

For staying out late nights with all the parasites

Plotting on a way to cop a little piece of paradise

Her dignity the only thing that she could sacrifice

Just get the monkey off her back and she’d be back in line

Five minutes she stay on the move,

She’d done smoked up the stone that the builder refused

All coked up alone, she ain’t even in tune

And it’s sad cause she ain’t really have a reason to use

She was pretty girl

Cleaner than the Board of Health

Studied and enjoyed herself, I don’t know what drove her to avoid herself

Destroyed herself and took a taste of the yay’

And now she on the track, working while she wasting away

It’s safe to say, she looking for a someplace to stay

Who ever got a little paper to play

Can get a slice of this

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was now

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was now

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was

For no reason a seasoned splif was the first thing

One spring season while she’s out flirting

Now she season in and don’t need rehearsing

Esteem get a beating, life is uncertain

Ego need feeding, now the wants worsen

Beneath the demons she’s a warm person

When she’s not fiending, swearing and cursing

Behind the curtains, she’s really hurting

And while her people don’t even trust her at home

The dealer dem grin and cook the rocks down

And she without sin will spark the first stone

The feeling kicks in she’s in the dark zone

Old friends walk pass going ’bout their own

As if she is someone that they don’t know

Then the King of Kings lift her off the floor

Saying, “Life is a thing when you learn you grow.”

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was now

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was now

Pimpa’s paradise! that’s all she was

She rise and she fall like a star

Her life write off like a car

Her face full of all kinda scar

Always quick fi start a war

She can’t keep herself up to par

She plays like a broken guitar

She always want tek it too far

I doubt she a-go mek it too far

She rise and she fall like a star

Her life write off like a car

Her face full of all kinda scar

Always quick fi start a war

She can’t keep herself up to par

She plays like a broken guitar

She always want tek it too far

Mi wonder how she mek it so far

Songwriters: Bob Marley / Damian Robert Nesta Marley / Tarik L. Collins
