A tribute to one of this town

The ideals changed with time
For today I see how these have become
Not what I was looking for
Confused in today’s light
And the city’s mockery of self-defense
A street legend who can martial arts
But from my time I remember how I admired everything
Today, there is nothing to admire
I stayed for a long time with the memory
You abandoned the city where I was born
My mind turned into
And I searched out
