Trayvon Brown

Walk with me, Don't...SHOOT, cuz I don't wanna die young, I wanna grow old and have a daughter or a son, or maybe both, to live a full life is my hope, but the bullets in your gun are a noose around my throat. Don't....SHOOT, I promise you I wanna LIVE, I wanna show the world everything I have to give and it's a lot, and yea I might smoke a little pot, but so Bill Clinton and HE didn't get shot. Don't....SHOOT, I got plans for my future, that don't include a cop saying stop and let me shoot ya Don't....SHOOT, my hands are clearly in the air I start school next week and I wanna make it there. But you..... SHOT, and let me die in the streets, now my people want answers No justice no peace.
