Ghetto walls

Sometimes it gets hard for me to see beyond these ghetto walls

The idea of freedom gets lost inside these red brick walls

We watch Brothers, Sisters, Mothers, and Fathers get chained and carried away

In the middle of chasing freedom.

Dreams get lost in these walls but I refuse to let that happen to mine.

I won’t allow my dreams to be pushed aside

To dry up,

as if they were a raisin in the sun. Or allow my dreams to be deferred.

So instead of becoming a another ghetto story I’m looking to become a ghetto glory

Reminding kids of what exists beyond these red brick ghetto walls.
