Somewhere in the 

Projects. There's a kid working 

On a project. To project
To the world. He lives
in a city that Grows

boys and girls into Lions

and tigers. A city that takes

the fire and the ashes
builds    rebuilds
turns abandoned houses and
empty fields into things worth

looking at. A place that never looks back
The center stage of

a nation   the heartbeat
the patience   the music
The Motown   the midtown
the downtown
the always comes back

around. Where we fight for our reputation
Walk   ride   bike to our

destination. Practice patience
Knows that they can't forget about

us. Detroit
the city that continues to call

the worlds bluff
somewhere there's a kid working 

on a project. To project

From a city that’s

rebuilding. That we building from
the ashes together
so that everywhere there can be

Detroit.

-Natasha T. Miller, Shinola Team Member since 2014
