I am from Oakland. Land of the hyphy.

Where I play ball and most of the people all like me.

 

My town is full of creativity and art.

Where people have fun, rap, and take bart.

 

My Mom works hard for my family and me.

And in return for my grades I bring home a C.

 

I can do better. I will do better. If not what’s it all for?

To live my whole life with a closed door?

 

No, I want to get chances.

To make money and major advances.

 

I can’t do that if I am trippin’ up.

For that to happen I have to go up.
