I exist.

Here in the city

Where big shoulders


But sometimes I cower

At the sight of blue and red lights

The color of freedom


I exist

And sometimes my skin’s

A challenge

To an authority

Their eyes watching me

I exist

Yes I do,

I’ve got a better chance of dying

From a bullet than you

I exist

And that’s just it

I’m here

And my spirit won’t


I exist

Do your worst

I whisper it

Those ideas get us killed

Even keeping your head down

Isn’t a guarantee

I exist

And sometimes

I wonder why we’re


I exist

And that’s ok

I think as long as I

Stand out of the way
