Analysis of Meet me halfway
I remember back in the days
When you wouldn't even meet me halfway.
Not street to street no destination.
Where did you lay.
On a very thin pad.
With roaches and rats
Feeling always sad
As family lack communication.
You told me Karma was a witch
You stole from people.
Now you trying to survive in a ditch
Don't give me nothing, to understand your situation.
You wear the same clothes
As they grow bigger wholes
You hand wash everything.
Living in a poor location.
You take walks takes forever
To get where you want to be.
You love the weather
Can't handle it, feeling pain, frustration.
