Sunshine Soldier

Never given a chance,
Never give up,
Never give in,
Leaf on the wind,
Speak my mind,
Death threats fly,
Loved ones die,
Never give up,

Love my weapon,
Hate the world’s sword,
Head on the chopping block,

God my shield,
Struggle my partner,
Life lessons my brother,
Scars my sister,
Faith my mother,
Stubborn soul my father,

No cure for cancer,
Were all dying,
Crips plus Bloods equals arrogance,
Death tool equals innocence,
Law of the land minus spiritual resurgence,

Never given a chance,
Never give up,
Never give in,
Leaf on the wind,
Speak my mind,
Death threats fly,
Loved ones die,
Never give up,

Frontline soldier,
No gun given,
Birthed outta’ war,
P.O.W,
Casualty minus crossfire,
Death toll increasing,

Busy running game,
Queen lost,
Kings die,
Life my chess game,
Keep your pawns,
Trading pieces,
Once you leave,
Can’t replace me,

Civil war re-enactment,
Detroit city barracks,
Chicago P.D racist,

Badges don’t turn boys into men,
Holding a gun doesn’t make you a man,
Shooting 16 year olds gets you off scotch free,
Courts and judges drink scotch every sentence,
Taking a breathalyzer the modern-day noose,

Pigs in blue racial profiling,
Middle Eastern heritage equals terrorist,
Black skin equals thief,
White skin equals saint,
Majority of rapes by white hands,

Never given a chance,
Never give up,
Never give in,
Leaf on the wind,
Speak my mind,
Death threats fly,
Loved ones die,
Never give up,

Sunshine,
She brings me back,
Talking for hours,
Forgetting the chains,
Metal detectors,
Ankle bracelets,
She lays me down,

She’s my sunshine girl,
Lifts me up,
She’s nature’s cousin,
Strength in roots,
Stands tall,
Beautiful waist,
Loves to tango,
Walking side by side,

No woman beside,
No woman can match;
Intelligence,
Beauty,
Stubbornness,
Anger,
Shyness,
Perfectly flawed flaws,

I go to war,
I carry her picture,
Eyes write letters,
Hands send comfort touches
Curls slide across my neck,
Nails softly caress my chest,

Love my weapon,
Your my shield,
Hung fire in my chest,
Enemy tries to capture,
Pretending to care,
Murdering statistics,
Young men my influence,
Boys killed my ego,

Hallucinating industry takeover,
Revenge guilty pleasure,
Deaths go unnoticed,

Never given a chance,
Never give up,
Never give in,
Leaf on the wind,
Speak my mind,
Death threats fly,
Loved ones die,
Never give up…
