Welcome To Chicago: “A Place Where 6 Month Old Babies Take Bullets To The Face”

Madam Prezident

I wrote this poem for the lives lost in Chicago due to senseless gang violence.

Welcome to Chicago
The Place of the cold case
Where 6 month old babies take bullets to the face
Welcome to Chicago
“Where you have to stop”
When you hear gun shots
Hit the floor
And hope a bullet
Doesn’t come through the door
“Welcome to Chicago”
The place where you hear
Of caskets being lowered to the ground
You hear Mothers WEEP
Beyond caskets going 6ft deep
WELCOME TO CHICAGO
Where our schools system
Is a fools system
Place our children at the bottom of the pool system
You got 1 teacher to 30 kids
All in room
So in actuality you got 1 teacher
To 30 dreams that’s all trying to bloom
And our children want hugs and love
Instead of a community flooded with drugs
They want grade level books
So they won’t have infantile education and knowledge
They want to have the conversation about
“Where they’re going to college”
And they want their father’s home
Instead of 26th and California
Where it’s not sunny
Our children still make time to laugh
But it’s not “funny”
“The deconstruction of the black family”
To get a piece of this American Pie
Ain’t No piece of cake
They’ve already labeled us as 3/5ths of a man
Which explains the high unemployment rates
‘To the black race
BUT THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT GOD’S GRACE
Where he can place his angels across a Chicago skyline
Reduces a young man’s jail time
Change POVERTY into Prosperity
Decrease the high school drop-out rate
And Increase the college graduate rate
Make No mistake about God’s grace
Even a place where bullets are flying
Children are dying
And mothers are crying
There is still a HIGHER POWER
That Channel 5, 7, and 9 News won’t acknowledge at the top of the hour
And his blessings exceeds the height of the Sears tower
‘WELCOM TO CHICAGO’
A place where God calms a storm
A place where
Some of your best black doctors, lawyers, surgeons, authors, and play writers were BORN!
‘WELCOME TO CHICAGO’
Where the struggle still exist
A place where we work hard
For low wages, pay high taxes,
BUT OUR SPIRTIS ARE STILL RICH
No matter how good or bad it may get
I am a PRODUCT of THIS
”WELCOME TO CHICAGO”
