My Thoughts On Life As A Child From The Ghetto

  

  

 

 As a person who was raised in the ghetto I feel as though. You almost have to retrain your mindset when you get older and want bigger and better things for you and your family. A great deal of things we learn in the ghetto are of little use to us when we are grown and looking to become successful. Our focus is to much about being cool, having swag and low level thinking. That by the time you’re in your 40’s you’re  simply playing catch up. Nas quoted this as being in your “second childhood” in his album Stillmatic. In the ghetto we all need to get torn down and rebuilt back up to think God first in all that we do and then education as the keys to success. Because at the end of the day you’re not cool because of the clothes you wear or the car you drive. The real cool adults buy homes for their children to dwell in and leave something behind to give their grandchildren a head start in life (now that’s cool). And as a child from the ghetto I’ve realized that it’s not too far fetched for this to become true for us, we simply have to change our mindset. It has worked for me and it will work for you. God Bless
