Flint-Jacob Durbin

A city called Flint

A nice city In the state of Michigan

One of the biggest cities

There is history of Flint

A city i call my my home


Where Legends can be made,

Where you make a name,

Where you become a legend


Where you won’t be forgotten

Where you can be yourself

And make it out

Where you fight for rights


Where the city had made you

The person you become 

This is Flint where legends were made

Where children go to play and play


This is Flint that feels like home

This is Flint that is my home

It is a struggle to come out of Flint


But Mo Pete’s did it with basketball

Didn’t let nothing get in the way 

He made his dream come true
