You see hooligans, tagging buildings, I see artists.
You see a smart-mouthed little girl, who always has to have the last word, I see a defense attorney.
You see the disrespectful boy in the back of the class who loves banging beats on the desk while you speak, I see a music composer.
You see a hard headed girl who never complies with the dress code, I see a fashion designer.
You see a city, a "ghetto war zone."
I see a community trying, I see a place, a place, I call home.
