Cin City

By Clifton   

I consider myself to be a Diamond in the rough,
Growing up in the city is not only shitty but it's tough,
Food stamp cards and shell casings,
The effects its had on my people is devastating,
But if we unify in a positive light we can turn the tide,
Im tired of watching channel 5 & seeing homicides,
On a daily bases parents bury children way too early,
Young teens suffering from low self esteem,
Dont see them selves as kings and queens nor worthy.
