There’s a baby looking lost like a dear in headlights
There’s a sleeping baby being held by a mother
There’s a mother looking mad
There are black African Americans people everywhere
They’re in a bus stop
They’re sitting on benches that hug on the butts of the women and little girl
They have on jackets, hats, and skirts that bends had they move their body
The little girl has a purse that is peacefully sitting in her lap

A mad mother waiting on the bus like an impatient mob
A baby getting more attention than the other like a favorite child would
A 2 year old looking up to Jesus praying for help like her life is a living hell

A 2years old that’s an old junior knows she shouldn’t be treated like a monkey
She’s praying answering and hopingly despair that her life gets better
