Kasi Township Ghetto

Cant sleep because I still smell the smoke on my clothes from the fire we just put out. 
I cant help but think about the soul we lost this early morning
Mornings are supposed to be filled with fresh air, birds singing, children playing happily.

Let me introduce u to my world, where dead rats, filthy green moldy water standing on the street is what u up too.
Welcome to ekasi (the ghetto/ township). 
Children electrocuted till death by faulty wires while playing. 
I cant help it but being robbed while going to the shop everyday. 
Going to college feels like a crime because people judge saying u think u better than everyone. 
My condolences to each & every innocent soul lost in these grounds my heart bleeds for u, no soul lost will be forgotten 
Dear government I hope u are able to sleep well at night while making empty promises & forgetting the souls you live behind, there blood is in ur hands

    Wonderful words! Education is the mission ... and will be paid forward. As for the rest -- kharma takes care. Best wishes and love!!!
