Gun Takeover

Put that gun down

Young one.

You may be feeling red,

But you’ll be seeing red.

If you use that there gun.

 

It won’t solve

Nothing.

But cause a whole lot of

Dread, 

Disaster,

And 

Death-ever-afters.

You think because the hate 

You may be feeling now;

Is going to go undone?

With that there gun...

 

Well listen up son, 

You don’t need 

No gun. 

To express 

Yourself.

Or

To stand up 

For yourself.

Instead:

Use your words, 

They can cut

Just as deep.

Use your education, 

It can make you

Successful.

Use your dreams,

They’ll keep 

You going.

 

It has been 23

And 

Too many 

School shootings. 

Most people say it’s a 

“Generational tick”. 

“That today’s teens’ skin

Ain’t thick”. 

Which leaves,

Gun access as 

The culprit.

With

Bullying squeezing 

Its trigger.

Doesn’t mean,

Bread is going to be broken with

Who smoked it.

Lets stop this ongoing statistic.

 

There’s all this commotion 

But still not enough 

Action 

Which doesn't change

The fact that 

Bullets are being sprayed 

Bodies are being bagged.

And families are left being

Disrupted.

From school to school.

A place 

where we there 

Learn. 

A place where we there

Accomplish.

A place where we there

Hope for 

A future.

Not to see 

the end 

Of

Our future.

Our future.

This poem is about: 
Our world
