Can I Live here?                    


Restrictions and exclusiveness
Certain ways and wealth
Stacks of old money.

Seeking love and community
That money can’t provide.

Scared to see my people
That’s why you run to the cops
The same cops that routinely kill my people
Haven't you seen all the hashtags?
The community I would like to call my people
Fails to be a community.

We never seem to see eye to eye
Always coming from different sides
What happens now?
People want to come together
Their differences separate and disfigure
How can we come together?
