Last Words


why are you following me?

TELL me what i did wrong?

what is it about my RACE that’s got you suspicious,
AGITATED and acting all vicious?

I’m just a YOUNG man, going down the street
trying to grab some skittles and some ice tea,
But you’re acting like I’m a VIRUS
infecting your community.

and instead of engaging in dialogue
you OPTED to open fire
now I’m deceased, looking from the sky,
and you’re still free…

I’m asking myself why?

when will justice come?

this isn’t just about me

because the longer you remain out,
the answer NEVER
could very well be.
