character analysis: Jim Carroll
the basketball diaries
No snitching boy we light you up
Shoot them bullets, ain't nobody hot as us.
this lyric compares to Jim Carroll because he doesn't snitch.
whats life if its hard?
whats life if its trouble?
whats life if your hard headed?
whats life if your in the ghetto?
whats life anyways?
hard but fun as well.
i was a problem child.
but i was a child.
i didnt know better.
i just wanted to shoot hoops and cause trouble.
but i guess trouble found me.
keep your head up man. I know it can be hard in the slums of new York. Trust me i've been thru all of it. but at the end of the long tunnel of darkness there's always gonna be light.
