Face of the Slum

How many deaths must we witness?
How many victim do we welcome
Until someone finally says forget this
I will not stand for destruction of the slum?

How many tears must we shed?
How much time do we consume,
Until one person actually sees we were misled,
After leaving us poverty for an heirloom?

What are our children's plans?
These kids are the face of the slum;
Our legacy lies in their hands
So we must provide them with wisdom,
Because they are...
The face of the slum.

How many jobs must we lose?
How much education are we deprived,
Until you get the picture that you refuse
What our date with destiny has arrive?

What are our children's plans,
These kids are the face of the slum;
Our legacy lies in their hands
So we must provide them with wisdom,
Because they are..
The face of the slum.

How much family have we swindle?
How long we avoid the naked truth
Until we recognize that we can rekindle
The unity which we all have in our roots.
