The Ghetto

I miss the old days in the hood

Most people called it The Ghetto

Funny how I never saw it as such

We were a tight knit group of folks

Mostly just keeping to ourselves

Trying to keep trouble out of the hood

Raising our kids to stay away from trouble

We were grateful for every little thing

Teaching our kids to waste not, want not

Responsibility was shared in The Ghetto
