And a newborn's, first time to be here at last
And shouldn't have to grow up fast, and suffer our pain
From the miracle of birth, kids should be able to enjoy their childhood and not be thrust into the depression and depravity of the ghettos.
*also note Nas’s clever juxtaposition of the words “first” and “last” within the same line
