I was not trying to hear those words.
I won’t, I won’t, I won’t
allow you to say such things
because I know the society we live in is cruel.

I’d rather die before hearing that mess,
the mess about those selfish fools hurting my baby.

And for you, as a police to tell me this news?
No way, No way, No way. It’s unacceptable


Seeing the evidence broke my heart.
I know something was wrong.

I can feel my head hurting so much.
It was a sign, and I trusted my gut.

I just didn’t want to believe
that something happened to my baby boy.

His blood, realistic the image.
Now it’s no doubt, justice for Rodney.

And I won’t sleep, nor will I stop.
