There's a War In Our Streets

We must come together, yet I don’t see it in my lifetime There’s a war in our streets that’s crossed the line No where’s safe, school, church, home, blowing the mind Prayers, peace rallies, marches, protests, would be fine But the mindset of the enemy is laughing in agreement; lying People walking around with their heads so far up their ass As though everything is smooth as glass, this hell on earth soon to pass That child that was murdered, it should be the last Oh no another one and another one, life cold bloodedly crashed Rise up people, could this be our future? In stone it’s not cast It’s not Black, White, Crip, Blood, nor BGF warfare anymore Politicians don’t give a damn trust and believe that’s for sure Long as they got your vote, their money is right, the rest they can ignore Yeah this is hell on earth, a prelude of what’s coming, to what’s in store If we don’t come together the peace we once knew will be never more. Wishing for a feat or word that would reverse what has taken place The total disrespect of life, the declining mentality of the human race One magic deed to turn it around, educate, unify to again savor the taste Freedom from modern day slavery, savagery, jailhouse mentality whatever the case If we don’t come together, wishing, praying marching and protesting is just another waste

Hi Karen, I see this was posted in 2016, yet is sadly still true, even more so now, we need to stand together to fight violence and corruption~
