Future of America

The future of America
in the hands of today’s youth
our children need protection
they deserve the truth
Sitting ducks
fearing for their lives
hiding under desks at school
praying to survive
NRA collecting funds
for men with guns
government lies
who are we teaching
the death toll continues to rise
gun laws declared unconstitutional
while our children sit there screaming
blood paints the halls of our schools
teachers watching and grieving
please pick up a pen not a gun
talk of making America Great again
things have only gotten worse
this war is far from the end
racism at an all-time high
watching it happen
standing idly by
unable to empathize
sons, daughters
brothers and sisters
friends, teachers, and mentors
innocent lives are being mourned
creating another empty post
sorry for your loss
never again
in desperate need
America was never great
what does great again mean
land of the free
home of the brave
guns undocumented
none are safe
our guns easily obtained by our kids
those “mentally unstable” and “disturbed”
time to open our hearts and minds
such tragedies would have never occurred
if restrictions were put in place on time
a gun license or a permit
backgrounds checks
mental health resources we provide
22 mass shootings this year alone
more students than soldiers have died
these children are the future
2018 is the perfect time
to make a change
stand up and be a guide
to our children
help them survive
the future of America
in the hands of today’s youth
help them
guide them
tell the truth
bring them home from school alive
