This was a rap written by Victor Torres, he was encouraged to write it for his brother Quincy by his supportive track coach Mr. Ward.

Here is how the rap went.

"Building Bridges" part 2 rough copy

With my fist shoved so high, in the sky,
with my mouth stretched so wide,
I could cry.
With my stomach wound up tight like a bow,
I scream no!
I scream no!
No more racing up and down,
on the streets.
No more dancing to the beat,
with your feet.
No more wrestling me around,
on the floor.
No more just up and walking,
straight to the door.
What was it for?
Was it for?
Was it for?

"Building Bridges" part 4, The Community Jam against Violence, version.

With my fist shoved high, in the sky,
with my mouth so wide,
I gotta cry.
With my stomach wound tight as a bow,
I scream no!
I scream no!
No more racing up and down the street,
No more dancing to the funky jam,
swinging to the beat.
No more just getting up,
and walking to the door.
things that used to be so easy,
can't happen anymore.
What was it for?
What was it for?
Yo! stop the violence!
Increase the peace!
Increase the peace!
Increase the peace!
Increase the peace!
and i'm out..
