Dark Hallways, No Cameras

Dark hallways, no cameras. The elevator’s out most of the time. We have no choice but to walk down the steps. I try not to take my daughter down with me so much because there’s no air, there’s no window. It’s Section 8 housing. I’ve lived there now about 5 years. I had to move out of another apartment because people kept breaking the front door. I kept writing letters and they were pretty much ignoring me, until somebody else got involved. It’s just sad. You can’t move me when I’m asking and you give me every reason, but then when somebody else that has a little bit of power, then everybody can talk or fix the issue.
