Safe For All

When will there be a day
we put the bull shi*t away
safe for all kids of color
to come out and play
not have to run away
shooting at each other

caught with a bullet that is stray 
do what we see and what they say
why do we hurt one another 

because violence is all we portray 
death and there is no other way
sorry to our mothers 

so at night I will pray 
try to get rid of all my sins before I lay
that way no one else has to suffer.
