People Shooting
my mamma crying
gotta get out
cause' people keep on dying
can't see my mamma
like this
so I just keep on trying
to get us out
of this he** hole
forgive me GOD
just speaking my soul
keep on with my education
cause in this condition
that we keep on making
as a community, a nation
we all black
so lets stop that fighting
and each others back
and I made it out
with my family
so I thank you GOD
for keeping me safe
and now I am
the man of the day
