Treyvon Martin

I am Treyvon Martin


My life is not to long startin'


 I work day in and day out


From my mother did I sprout


My life is in God's hand


I am just human


But I walk this earth as an Afro American


Tall, Strong, and united I stand


I can't help I was born with this shade of skin


But unfortunately that was the cause of my end


There was no justice


Just this


Life taken from one just cause he can


Not cause I was human


But I was a BLACK MAN


Minding my own business walking to my home


Unarmed and alone


Yet he is the reason that today I no longer have a tone


I can't speak my story


But many are to this day still fighting for me


Just remember God doesn't like ugly


You may have gotten away today


But karma will come back around in it's own way
