Love Your Hood

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.
