Drive By's and Die By's

1 Review

There was a drive by shooting on 83rd street

How do I know, I was in the back seat

Had I known I would've gotten out of the car

Now my conscience is stifled in a glass jar

I can't tell anyone, I can't express

I can't tell authorities, I can't confess

My eyes bleed from the inside, I try to feel the pain

Blank stare, do I care, for the young person slain

When your time is up, it's your time to go, hear the tick tock

But a gun, a bullet and a target can speed up the clock

Drive By's, Die By's, sad city streets don't matter the weather

See the stop sign, when is it gonna stop sign, pray for better

Author Notes: So far in Chicago in 2021: A total of 677 adolescents and children were shot at, among whom 429 (63 percent) had gunshot wounds and 68 (10.1 percent) died from their injuries.
