A Grieving Society

A perfect world is unrealistic

Crime, violence, guns, deaths, gangs

When will it slow down

Can we put down the weapons and pick up a book

Can we forget where we came from and not let red or blue create violence

Can we graduate high school and lower the crime rate

Can we all get along, stop fights in schools, and help each other with classwork

Can we stop hurting our parents and make sure death doesn’t pay a visit

It takes a determined group, to make a change

Lets not be another teenage statistic
