We swallow tomorrow's seed, what we leave is hollow
We feed violence and greed, let 'em lead tomorrow
In this metaphor, Pac explains how the negative influences affecting today’s youth can be especially damaging to future generations. He sees nothing but “violence and greed” being fed to these childrens' minds rather than education or other positive values (in his environment, at least). In turn, these violent and greedy children will be the future leaders of tomorrow.
We = Society
Tomorrow = Future
Seed = Children as a whole
