Screaming Stop The Violence


On account of several homeboys locked in silence
I'm on the corner screaming stop the violence!
As I return to my quiet study
Hope they have a lighter for me
I can see what needs to change but still don't have the money
Flip on the tube
And I'm amused by the news
A little confused
Say
Who'd they choose the make the rules?
They choose to hate the few
Who refuse to accept corruption
And they just won't blame themselves for nothing
Take a walk in the night
Through a site
Where death just left
Another breath
Analyze every step
And I can hear the cries for help
As I despise myself
As if I never even tried to help
I say a small prayer
Hopped on the streets
Wanna drop the grief
And be free
But there's something stopping me
Lets cock the glock and see
Oh no
I'd be locked in silence
The very one screaming stop the violence

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
