I hear a gunshot…

I hear a gunshot ring through the night

Another body drops dead and lying in the street

I hear silence in the dark as the blood runs cold

Another person’s life gone

And why does this happen

The endless deaths

And then I hear the sirens, the running of feet

The screams of pain and defeat

Another life gone in a heart beat

I cringe in fear for the death being so near

I want to escape

But where will I go

This is my home, my street

It’s my life it’s all I know

I pray to God save my soul

As I hear another gunshot ring through the night
