Hellbent on not becoming hellbound

Written by: Sha'ntez Jefferson

They speak boldly of bravery
But yet cowardly hide from reality
Falsely believing courage to be found in artillery,
and respect in a casualty

I hope they never have to watch life untimely leave
When someone they think fondly of can no longer breath
They talk errantly since their life is at ease
In another part of town a mother weeps on her knees

But now this new recession
Has demographics intersectin
They on wall street concealing weapons
Even buddhists had to toughen

And I just want to be sky bound
When the clouds come unbound
And the instruments sound
Dont wanna be hellbound
