Confused War

You can have heart, but you can't show it.

This is the confused war.

The drug war that divides the streets of Richmond, California.

Kill to survive.

Hope for a tomorrow.

Take a breath in...release.

Begging for community peace.

The drug war that is responsible for hundreds of life's.

Substances are what we know. 

Now, ask yourself why that is? 

There is a war out there & no one knows why.
