Next Stop (Mattapan Square)

I am from Mattapan, MA. An inner-city neighborhood in the city of Boston. Born, raised, & currently living. I left, went to college and I am right back here. I'm proud of where I'm from. I put Mattapan on my back. On my back because what I see carries a lot of weight, weight that can't easily be let go. The day to day struggles & the hard faces, show a harsh reality, a reality that sometimes is a nightmare. The negligence & the igorance coincide causing change to be at a stand by. I am living here until I get by. Mattapan is forever mine. Mattapan is my home.
