He only went to the store to get some candy, they hollered
He walked out of his house with hope in his eyes
Dreams in his heart
A future in his mind
He embraced his chocolate skin as he walked with stride
His happiness was contagious to those who graced his presence
He only went to the store to get some candy, they yellwed
The pure boy with the pure heart had angels surrounding him, protecting his every move
He didn't have a chance to make it in this world
STOP RIGHT THERE, PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR.
Poor boy, confused boy
GET ON THE GROUND, DON'T RESIST ARREST.
Golden boy, sweet boy
NIGGERS LIKE YOU DON'T DESERVE TO LIVE.
Kind boy, innocent boy
He wonly went to the store to get some candy.
Blood flooded out of his veins into a puddle of concrete red surrounding him
He only went to the store to get some candy, they cried
Tears escaping his eyes, falling down his soft cheeks as his heart began to quiet down
His veins were dry, his heart was still, his eyes were lifeless.
Angel boy, young boy.
The complexion of your skin was coated with the hatred in their eyes
No more pain.
No more tears.
Sweet Dreams Baby Boy.
