about

This is a tribute to the life and unfortunate death of Trayvan Martin. It is dedicated to those African-Americans like Trayvan and others who deal with the racist issues that are a continuing and unfortunate part of our American culture. We need to heal somehow. We need to learn not to hate. We need not continue to let those who want to inflict hate to continue through love. We must become the best we can be.

Trayvan Lives On

We saw the verdict on all the news shows where they sell racism for big money

Mr. Zimmerman was smiling when they released him for murdering a black teen

Trayvan was shot by a cop wannabe vigilante who saw him wearing a hoodie

So he got out of his car and chased him down and shot him dead in the heart unseen

dead in the heart unseen dead in the heart unseen

Thanks to a law where you can hide your gun and have some fun without anyone near

You can shoot a son who was doing nothing more than walking home in the rain

The violence peddlers and their lackeys don’t see anything wrong making money off fear

They are making money off fear. F.E.A.R.

As long as the blood is from the poor and dark-skinned that goes down the drain

They can turn away.

They want you to turn away and act like you never saw anything.

You didm't see anything. (You did)

Shot dead in the heart unseen Shot dead in the heart unseen

For me, Trayvan Lives On

So sorry what happened to you you’re the angels’ youngest son

Trayvan Lives On.

That's what we need to remember

Shot dead in the heart unseen got out of his car and chased him down and shot him dead in the heart unseen

We have to change our ways or more Trayvans will be undone.

We have to change our ways or more Trayvans will be undone.

We have to change our ways or more Trayvans will be undone.

I was a city bus and could see some young sons who could been Trayvan and they were looking

All around where they were and were wondering what could happen

There could be someone targeting them with no good reason at all

All I can do is try to make sure with a smile or friendly gesture that they will be alright

But when I go off to my journey's life, they’re a target to hatred and insane violent strife.

For me, Trayvan Lives On So sorry what happened to you you’re the angels’ youngest son

Trayvan Lives On.

We have to change our ways our more Trayvans will be undone.

Trayvan Lives On.
