Boom boom boom boom three more times

another black man shot down

another black woman shot down

another black child shot down

Boom boom boom boom three more times

**** that could've been my father

**** that could've been my mother

**** that could've been my sister or brother

****...that could've been my child

Boom boom boom boom three more times

A broken home

A stolen soul

A lost mind

Because of the boom boom boom boom

A gun sounds

Boom boom boom boom three more times

Could my mother be next

Could my sister be next

Could my brothers be next

Boom

Could it

Boom

Be me?

Boom
A black man shot down. Hurts my heart because I'm a black woman.
