Shoot Me Dead
by Yesica Solano
My pencil is writing but they're meaningless words
Looking at the teacher but not attentive to what occurs
My thinking somewhere else but here
Thoughts after school are relaxing on beer.
One more friend now vanished and gone
Crossing the border,three shots hit the ground, he was done
Just before his loss, a painful climb
Uncle Peewee shot down, tased four times
His eyes now closed with no second chance
With him now gone, no air to breathe, no song to dance
His eyes now closed, left two kids behind
Border patrol tarred his life, I wish it was mine
Want to plead forgiveness on part of border patrol
Want to help my family and friends overcome anger and take control
Want to retaliate back at border patrol for all the illegals killed
Want to let them know they're creating empty spaces that once were filled
Families got no choice but to fill them up with pictures of the past
Many now realize what they have can be gone with just three shots or a flash
People risking lives just for their family's need
Innocents dying while there are others creating havoc, smoking weed
The laws just making up lies that create our reputation
Thought this was a free country, not an anti-Mexican nation.
Wanna take a moment of this world's time
To remember all the illegals that have died
I know I'm just twelve and you think I don't understand
Question for border patrol
"How does it feel watching an innocent die with a gun in hand?"
Can they sleep at night knowing there are families dying with tears?
Kids getting angry, ready for revenge, converting into their worst fears
Why kill an illegal when you can just send them back?
What's the point just killing and faking illegals attacked?
When in reality border patrol had fun chasing and shooting them down
But soon their time will come because what goes around comes around
So many innocents blacking out, hitting the cold ground
So many illegals now dead with stories to be found
Point is border patrol likes shooting Mexicans
Can't deny it because it's true
So if I ran with no sign of attack, would you shoot me too?
If you caught me running helpless, what would you do?
Would you fake my attack and shoot me too?
So many harmless people killed, families spread apart
My country is Mexico, border patrol can shoot me, aiming for my heart
People going back to their country still end up shot in the head
I'm not an illegal but if you see me crossing the border
Shoot Shoot me dead.
