Don’t leave me Mommy,
don’t leave me Daddy,
don’t leave me Grammy.
How can survive when I have no family?
Left me alone when I was three.
Walking, trying to learn that the streets will never free me.
Looking at the dark things crawling on my legs
got to admit it was scary.
Found a place to sleep
guess what, it didn’t help me
Always something getting cold
my legs my feet you know how the story goes.
Wake up the next morning
can’t see right cause of the light
but something is wrong with my eyes
I pray I don’t go blind by the end of tonight.
Mommy always told me stay on your feet and fight
but my mom left me and ran off with her life.
Well this is my life and I will be healthy alright!
Ten years go by, now I’m fifteen
black as can be, but I can kill a race.
Hearing gun shots go off and thinking it’s the war
but remember I have no life I’m bored.
I’m sick, stressed out and is it my imagination?
Nope I don’t know anymore!
Taking that long walk looking for the door
trying to think back to what my mom, dad, and grandma look like
Ha! I forgot I was just born.
Looking at all the black doctors in my face and finally realized the hospital was my only safe place.
