Don't Shoot Me

by Bianca Delarosa

 Donít shoot me at Walmart
 I am just playing a game
 Or talking on the phone
 I am a man with a name

So, donít shoot me in the street
 On my way from the store
 Iím on my way to college
 I have my foot in the door

Please donít shoot me, Mr. Officer
 I got my wallet, like you asked
 Your fear makes me nervous
 As does the impact from your blast

Knock on my door, Mr. Officer
 Rather than kick it down
 I would open it most gladly
 And let you sit down

You have too much fear to have power
 Full of the corruption it brings
 Bringing the bad moon to rise
 Haunted by the specter of old things

If you shoot me Mr.Officer
 And end my existence
 My soul will cry out for justice
 As you pray for forgiveness

But, know this Mr. Officer
 That your deeds will be known
 Whatever you reap
 Will be what you have sown

You are in fear for your life
 Well, so am I for mine
 You have a weapon in your hands
 While in the air I hold mine
