Boom! Pop! Boom!
I am a young Chicago girl surviving in this big world.
There is much to see besides this bloody city.
Here all you hear about is a death, a shooting, a homicide.
When a gun goes off you duck and hide.
I have lost acquaintences, peers, and friends.
The special ones that didn't make it to the end.
We should not have to live in fear,
Mothers should not shed tear.
A policeman arrives at the scene, but no one is left to be seen.
A daily struggle in Chicago, and I hope to be the last to go.
