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 Oliver Wendell Holmes

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
