She was once happy, once free;
Always dreaming of what life could be;
To be a doctor or lawyer in court?
Too bad her time was cut so short.
Violence killed her but will it kill me?
No one knows so I'll wait and see.
A knock on the door in the dead of night;
A person with a gun killing on sight;
They ended her life without second thought;
Will it happen to me?
I sure hope not.
Sadly our world is filled with violence and hate;
So there's nothing left but to ponder my fate;
As I think I begin to cry;
I know I'll never be ready to die.
