As children, we don’t get to choose where we live.
Whether it’s uptown,
Or in a downtown area.
Home is where your parents can afford
Regardless of where you feel you belong
If you want to live in a different hood
Then it’s up to you to get the education
To rise above
Just know you will learn from where you are living
No matter the situation or the struggle
Although it will not define who you are
But, instead help you to become the person you will be
Don’t forget where you came from as you grow into adulthood
Learn from the lessons
Follow your heart
So you will have the strength and wisdom
To make the right decisions for you and your future family.
