Bang. Bang. Bang.
Sounded like my toy drum
But I know where that sound came from
Mama said keep your head away from
That window
“I ain’t visiting no kids in the morgue”
See, she used to say the hospital
But that was before all these little
Friends of mine
Stopped breathing
In my dreams I keep seeing
Heaven’s body on the concrete
Tears I had to keep
Because as much as it hurts
It’s the new way of life
On all sides
And I went from playing four square
To one
And the ball don’t bounce right like that
All them days playing football in the streets
Man, I’ll never get that back
And it all comes down to one cruel fact:
Guns make more noise than kids these days
And pretty soon there’ll be no more kids to play
And it’s sad
When I end up losing
All the people I should grow old with
Gangs rule the streets
And adults don’t wanna speak
So my chances for survival
Got weaker
My mood is a little bleaker
Because the sounds from the speaker
Keep saying be like them
But that's no true way to win
So what do you do?
When you're forced to sit in your room
Waiting for ghost to play with you
And while I should be learning 1,2,3s
I'm discovering the meaning of R.I.P.
I bet I get an A in that
And the other day
I made this rhyme
And my teacher shook her head
Bullets Fly
Friends Die
Mommas Cry
I play by
It's hard to see
Better yet thirteen
And I'm worried
That I will be next
I guess when you're a kid
That's what you expect
