Joshua Jones: “One For My Father”

One For My Father

A lot of people don’t have their dad

So I’m more than lucky, I’m blessed.

When it comes to raising me

he wasn’t perfect but he did his best.

I confess we may not always see

eye to eye, but he taught me to

take pride in my work, be humble

and serve God. He protects

and serves his family and he will

until he dies. I take pride in my

last name being Jones. I’m glad

I live in the City of Champions,

a place I can call home.

On Crenshaw streets I may roam,

but on Manchester & Van Ness

lies my home. They say home

is where the heart is and my

Heart is right here in Inglewood.
