My Killer Got Away

He was seventeen years old
had his whole life ahead
until that one dreaded night
where a boy was found dead
A man came and shot him
he claimed self defense
people flipped the race card
the situation got tense
It's not about the colors
a man killed someones kid
another child just gone
but they don't care what he did
They found him not guilty
a killer got away
just another sad story
there's no justice these days
I'm scared to wear a hoodie
will I get gunned down too
let my murderer escape
so it can happen to you
How many kids will it take
for America to see
Trayvon Martin was just one
how many more will it be
