I am from Oakland, CA
I am from a world where the only thing you hear is gunshots wherever
did you not see someone die after getting shot .
that’s crazy how people say they seen someone get shot.
but when we ask a question and you acting like you forgot.
let’s see if you really seen someone gets shot if you was not
on your block when everybody was trying to tell you about
the person that got shot.
but you claim that was your father but we telling you that it’s someone
that didn’t live on your block when they were the ones that try to move
on a block before getting shot.
I am going my block trying to see who got shot and everybody still don’t
know who got shot after being on the news.
I wonder why is everybody killing each other over some stupid stuff
to me, I will think to myself, why kill people if you don’t know why you are killing for.
