SIT AND WONDER WHY
A Frank Reflection
Sometimes, I sit and wonder why;
In the midst of the day, I had to cry,
Just put my fist right through the sky.
Stray from the heat and toward the sun.
Grey are my feet; Im all done.
Pity the reaper, who brought the gun.
The brother and keeper, he did run.
Beyond the door where the cold lifeless one.
On the floor lay the mothers son.
Within this hood too many turn blue,
We all ask what to do?
Hopes and dreams they have too.
Cant you see, when they shatter?
Dont ask me, whats the matter?
Out of school but safe inside,
Still deaths tool he did hide.
Where I live, no matter how I try;
Sometimes, I sit and wonder why,
In the middle of the day beneath a blue sky,
Another brother shot, too young to die.
Yes the same color, just a different age.
Which side you choose, express your rage?
To some its not news, turn the page.
Flicker the flame burnin bright yet still.
Quicker the blame turnin light get chill.
Another of our boys, yellow tape surround.
Guns are not toys, too many around.
Yes, thats why I have found.
Sometimes, I sit and wonder why.
Another shining star goes to the sky.
Away from the heat and toward the sun.
Heartbroken mother by her son.
Forever rest in peace, it cant be undone
