Detroit Strong

The news will show you slums,
Homes ravaged by fire and fights.
Corruption will take center stage
And the bleakness with devour all light.

But our truth is so much more
Than the images they share in vain.
The truth is resilience and hope,
The soul of a people who bravely reign

And continue to fight on with passion
After the match has already been called.
Who choose to follow the Phoenix
Instead of accept the wreckage that sprawled.

With infinite determination, we stand
To prove you wrong. Take your tasteless
Negativity and doubt somewhere else.
Nothing can beat Detroit Strong.
