Change

Society has yet to change but 
deepen itself in such pain. 
All these scream and tears 
thrown out after life is taken. 
Eyes are blinded by rage for 
no real worth of an issue. 
Children in the parents arms 
dying, parents laid out on 
the now cold cement. 
How are we suppose to look 
towards our future if our 
children have nothing to look 
up to or they are the ones 
with the guns that are ending 
others lives. 
Our heads should be in books 
rather than each others shoulders 
or our hands filling up with tears. 
We should be looking forward to 
achievements rather than a funeral. 
We must open ours eyes rather than 
these bullet cases, so we can see 
change in our future not our death count.
