Did not choose this life

People live in tenements of misery

People live in projects of abject pain

People live the ghetto life

Its not a choice to live like this

Piss stenched buildings

Covered in graffiti art

Showing fallen people

Lives ended that barely had a chance to start

Broken windows reflect broken dreams

It’s even more hopeless than it seems for many

They didn’t choose to live like this

Living in a life of poverty

Surround by drugs and guns

And dangerous gangs

They do what can and need to survive

But the didn’t choose these lives

Would you.
