One evening an individual asked me
“What hood you from?” I replied HOOD?!!!!!
I am not from no ‘HOOD’ my friend, and I will never be.
I then told him where I was from and where I will always be from.
I am from The Slums I am from The Ghetto I am from from
an experimental project started by our government called,
Where families with little and next to nothing,
Not only raised their own families, they instinctively raised
The Communities Family
In spite of the Worlds situation at that time, we were SHELTERED, PROTECTED, EDUCATED, AND ENCAPSULATED WITH ALL THE LOVE
AND FEAR OF GOD AVAILABLE. And THE FAMILYS DID EXCEEDINGLY WELL
I’M FROM THE ‘MITCHELL PROJECT’
AND FROM THAT GENESIS CAME:
DOCTORS, LAWYERS, CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVST, NURSES , TEACHERS, SOLDIERS, SAILORS, MARINES,
BUS DRIVERS, SPORTS ICONS,
EVANGELIST, PREACHERS, LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS, JOURNALIST OH! YEA,

I have been blessed to travel the world over,
AND THE WORLD HAS PAID THE PLACE I’M FROM THE ‘ULTIMATE COMPLEMENT……….THEY TRY TO BE LIKE US , THEY HAVE A BETTER CHANCE TRYING TO BE LIKE MIKE.
