Could I Be Next

Could I be next to be put down to rest 

Could I be next six shots to my chest

Could I be next my arms in the air

Could I be next to be murdered unfair

Could I be next a cop on my back

Could I be next because I am black

Could I be next to be stereotyped

Could I be next shot down by night

Could I be next to run out of breathe

Could I be next to be put down to rest

 

I could be next and that’s what I dread that someone will leave me lifeless and dead.
