"People say the greatest generation has come and gone, but their wrong... they haven't seen what were capable of" - Dan Campbell

He takes his orders
From behind the counter

12 long hours
least worry of his living disaster

His little girl is sitting alone
Wondering when daddy will get home

The same worries
resurface night after night
Will the gunshots down the street end one of their lives?

His little girl is tucked in tight
He's scared for none other than her life

His little girl smiles at him
Her future and life was relying on every move he made
cause this time
mama wasn’t here to stay
