Was what I heard every night,
Police car sirens were my nighttime lullaby,
People always use to tell me,"Everything will be alright", but when I saw my mom fall to the floor I knew they had lied.
Thinking every night what I would do to her killer and not once thinking of any consequences.
So as you can see violence had once taken over my life and I wish I had known what peace was like,
But I also wish my mother was alive.
But is she? No.
So that was basically the reason I lost all hope.
But you see now, my mind focuses on peace and serenity as a kid violence almost drove me to complete insanity.
Finding peace changed who I was,
Because my whole perspective is now focused on love.
