Detroit

Teens walk the streets full of fear, A ton of murders every year, Death, Theft, Hate and knives, Drugs, Money, Murdered wives, These are the things I see, But they shall never create me, It's crazy how most of our teen murders are gang related, For some teens never had love, After joining a gang, They will fight for their lives, To the point where guns are being heard, More than a singing bird, And murders are being committed more than child birth, And some see Detroit as hell on Earth, But no one pays attention to the intelligence our teens are worth, For Detroit is a city full of broken dreams, Hoping one day all gangs will work together, And unite as a team, Then we will create a great future, For Detroit's wound will rejoin with a suture, And one day we will make a successful cope, Detroit is a city full of hope.
