I'm tired of all the violence

I'm tired of all the hatred

I'm tired of hearing about all the innocent lives that keep being taken

This year i think it hit me the hardest

when i lost my own friend to gun

There's been death on the news that lately it doesn't seem to surprise anyone

My other friend was stabbed

I saw it with my own eyes

I cried as he almost bled out, thank god because he's lucky to still be alive

RIP shouldn't be trending, it should not be a frequent event

Kids should feel safe leaving the house, death should not be a fear that were forced to accept

It's no longer just in tv or movies it real it really exists

What people don't realize is that just by living you're taking a risk

So lets put down these gun and knives there shouldn't be any excuse

Because it all seems impossible till its someone you know on the news.

Awww I love this so much!!! It gave me goosebumps. We all should be more aware about the violence in our communities and our society.
It'd mean a lot if you'd check out some of my work.
