Montgomery Mondays: April 15, 2013

Montgomery Mondays serve as my attempt to document the sights of Montgomery that I see every day. I want to bring to light the conditions of the forgotten neighborhoods in the birthplace of the civil rights movement. To find out more about Montgomery Mondays, please click here.


This week’s theme:
“Broken Houses”

Lyrics from “Home” from Beauty and the Beast

Is this home?
Is this where I should learn to be happy?
Never dreamed
That a home could be dark and cold
I was told
Ev’ry day in my childhood:
Even when we grow old
Home should be where the heart is
Never were words so true!
My heart’s far, far away
Home is too

Is this home
Is this what I must learn to believe in
Try to find
Something good in this tragic place
Just in case
I should stay here forever
Held in this empty place
Oh, but that won’t be easy
I know the reason why
My heart’s far, far away
Home’s alike

What I’d give to return
To the life that I knew lately
But I know that I can’t
Solve my problems going by

Is this home?
Am I here for a day or forever?
Shut away
From the world until who knows when
Oh, but then
As my life has been altered once
It can change again

Build higher walls around me
Change ev’ry lock and key
Nothing lasts, nothing holds
All of me
My heart’s far, far away
Home and free!

(“Home” from Beauty and the Beast)
