Comments about C. Albert Andrews
This Street Life
THIS STREET LIFE
I‘ve never seen you here before,
This inspires me even more.
I “m not as old, as I may seem
But for years, that’s how its been
You see that woman on that bench?
Her first few years, made so much sense.
Today I know, she does regret
The situation, she did not address.
I ‘m sure that you would not like
To take a chance at this street life.
Many men and women too,
Walked this street just like you.
They believed, that it was right,
To sleep by day and work at night.
But just ...
Today I Shine
From the struggles of yesterday, today I shine
I have climbed from the ghetto that had me blind.
I was scorned by the curse of black stereotype
But my life has changed and today I shine
Just like the Diamonds of Africa,
Today I shine
I would not look back at my dark past,
Its lessons have taught me a whole new path,
A path though rough, the end is clear
