    Deep down in the Ghetto
    Thoughts drowned out by loud music
    Bottles of Wine, weed, Heroin, Police sirens
    And Religion to help confuse it
    Drunken men with their hands out
    Laying stomach up in the gutter
    As I reach for some change and hand him a dollar
    He tries to say thanks, but his hand is trembling plus he st-st stutters

    I move on

    As I walk a little further
    There’s pretty Tameka on the corner
    For 5, or $10
    You can have her when you want her
    She’s legal, got baby daddy drama
    He’s always in and out of jail
    But got a strong hold on her mind
    So she tricks for baby food and to get his *** out on bail

    It’s a sick cycle
    As I pass by, she winks and says Hi
    I got a chill up my spine and felt weak in the knees
    She asks, “are you dating, what you wanna do”
    I said take this $20, go home and feed your seed
    She said “but I…….That’s all I heard
    Cause after that I let her speak to my breeze

    Jesus said to feed my flock

    I go up stairs to pay a visit to my people in the building
    The first floors flooded with noise
    Mommies yelling at their children
    Second floor just as bad
    Seen baby momma get smacked up by baby dad
    I know it was over money
    Because I heard him say “is this all you have”

    What is better than peace

    Surrounded in my own thoughts
    As tears came down her face
    I started to approach the situation
    As he pulled her back into their place
    Up to the 3rd floor
    As I start to breathe a little harder
    There’s Willie the whino
    Oh Lord, should I even bother
    I tapped him on the shoulder
    Woke up the gator, as he spoke he release the dragon or better yet the beast
    As he rambled in inebriated tongues
    I covered my face and held my breath as my two fingers said peace

    The body’s the temple the mind is the power

    The 4th floor almost there
    All of a sudden a shot rang out
    All I heard was “not my baby”
    As I looked around the corner, saw his brains hang out
    It was ill and I was frozen
    Then got the strength to ask his friend why would he do this for
    Because he just found out he caught Aids from Tameka
    U know the girl on the corner that I mentioned before

    Practice abstaining

    The fifth floor, finally made it, my heart still pounding
    Thinking to myself, what could happen next
    About to knock, but there is a sign on the door that says evicted
    With no change of address
    ****!

    Awesome piece poet...
    It's so real, it hurts. As we wander through the streets of "Hell" ...So few of us will take that chance to walk, down the street, up the stairs ....to "Heaven"
    Surely I see/feel/hear this on a daily as I walk through the doors of both.
