Can't Break Me Down

I was born right before a hurricane,
Grams said it was nonstop wind and rain,
But the storm didnít break us down,
When I was older the civil war came,
Dodging bullets is not a game,
But I didnít let that break me down.

Iíve seen shit no man should ever see,
Iíve felt the tracers fly past me,
All I could do was just hit the ground,
I was only but eight years old,
To survive I had to be bold,
Because death makes a loud sound.

But of all the scariest things Iíve seen,
(Some of you will know what I mean)
And this one really takes the crown,
Was the time I was near my slaughter,
When I raised my teenage daughters,
But still they couldnít break me down.
