Don't Ban Videogames

By day, I am a student,
A kid with many dreams
Of fun and grand adventure,
Of agents and sports teams.

By night I jump into a world
Of magic, guns, or Sims
When I play PC or console games
Like Halo or Skyrim.

I like to play the games because
It's stuff I could never do
At school or in the real world
(Keeps me out of trouble, too).

Just 'cause some nut picked up a gun
Doesn't mean I'll ever want to use one.

    You and my son have a lot in common. I like your poem a lot. It seems those of us who do not play hold the strongest opinions. It is good to get opinion from someone who is part of that world. Much more relevant. Con grats on win.

    I like how you added other goals, etc. with the meat of the story. It's sad that what a few nuts do out there influence how some people think of millions of regular people's hobbies.
