Can we change Anacostia?
Certainly we can change Anacostia.
How do we do it?
Hopefully one step at a time.
And, when do we do it?
As soon as possible.
Now that it’s your turn go take action.
Go now change, create,clean, and care.
The day had finally come, was it unlocked? She couldn’t tell, too numb to notice the outside. Why would I, me of all people, come to this place? So nasty disgusting and trashy. What’s going through my head, maybe I just wanted to get away from all the bright lights and loudness and people. Just a day where no development has come: just a day where I step out of the element that I was living in and into an abandoned space just waiting to be unlocked.
In Anacostia, there’s art all around
Murals & graffiti paint the town.
Walking down MLK, there’s always a buzz
Neighbors chatting & and giving each other hugs.
As you go up the hills
Animals taking refuge in old houses is a thrill,
Anacostia still needs improvement you see
But through good & bad there’s still a community.
