The Ghetto


I want to get out the Ghetto, I want to get out know,
I want to get out the Ghetto, but I don't know how.
I sit in my corner both day and night, about how to survive in
in the Ghetto with out a fight, thinking and wondering what will
the next day bring, will it bring joy or happiness? or only more
sirens?
I want to get out the Ghetto, I want to get out know,
I want to get out the Ghetto, but I don't know how
The Ghetto is no place for a kid like me, growing up in this
rough society, I walk around with less dignity, lack of shame,
so I ask myself, who am I to blame? Do blame me or Do I blame
society?
I want to get out the Ghetto, I want to get out know,
I want to get out the Ghetto, but I don't know how.

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
