by Kendrick Lamar -album “Good Kid” 2012 http://genius.com
this sing was part of the album “Good Kid” from 2012, this song towards the start talks about how foster kids are treated, what they went through, and how they get around. In this song it has a many key hints that this song could be poetic for example, “Tired of running, tired of hunting. My own kind.” this line shows how many African Americans that go through the system our scared of what they have to face to get around. “These foster homes, I run away and never do miss’em.” this quote is a powerful view on how the system for foster kids can be ruff and sometimes very uncaring, and cruel. “Am i worth it? Did i put enough work in?” this quote really shows how the system can make kids minds warm into thinking they are never good enough.
