Close your eyes...

Close your eyes and see what I see in this life. 

A war that should not even be going on is killing innocent people, 

and taking money from the economy.

Money which could be used, to strengthen our schools, and to create more jobs.

More jobs would most likely lead to a decrease in illegal activities and crimes.

Young teenage girls are running away.

They would prefer to live out on the streets, then in a home where something

obviously is not right.

Parents, choosing drugs and their friends over their own children.

Young girls, becoming pregnant at just fifteen because nobody cares what they 


We have rappers and hip hop singers putting down records about what is wrong 

with today’s society. 

No one seems to recognize or even pay attention, so close your eyes and see for 

yourself just how bad America has become. 

If we don’t stand up and do something now, it is only going to get worse.
