    NOT ONLY OUR CHILDREN,BUT WE LIVE BY STANDARDS OF A PROGRAMMED

    SOCIETY

    WHERE UNDERSTANDING IS DYING AND IGNORANCE GIVEN AWAY FREE

    WITH COLOR A MAIN ISSUE,BUT A CHECKBOOK IS TAUGHT TO BE THEIR

    GUARANTEE

    CHILDREN ARE BEING RAISED AS VICTIMS BECOMING PREY TO THE SYSTEM

    WITH MINDS COVERED IN CONFUSION, SOME BROKEN TO THE POINT OF NO

    REPAIR

    GUNS IN THEIR HANDS, LEAVING THEIR FUTURE UP IN THE AIR

    ANSWERS IN THE DISTANCE, BUT LACK OF ENTHUSIASM TO REACH

    AND WE AS SOCIETY, LIVING IN DENIAL, THE TRUTH NOT BENEFICIAL TO

    TEACH

    A SLAVE MENTALITY IN FULL FORCE

    THE MEDIA REFUSING TO GIVE THEM A DIVORCE

    THEIR MINDS SO DESTRUCTIVE SHOWING NO REMORSE

    AND THEIR HEARTS SO BLACKEN , WHICH IS A STRANGER TO JOY

    IN SOME CASES SOCIETY TREATS DISCIPLINE AS ABUSE

    DRAGGING TRUE PARENTS OVER THE COALS, GIVING THE CHILD THE POWER

    AN EXCUSE

    SOME PARENTS IN SO MANY WAYS ARE FORCE TO LET THE CHILD RUN FREE

    WHILE SOCIETY HAS THE RIGHT TO JAIL THEM, OR TAKE THEIR LIFE YOU SEE

    AND THE REAL HURTING PART, TO A CERTAIN DEGREE,YOU HAVE TO BE

    AFRAID

    BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW WHO HAVE GOTTEN INTO THAT KID'S HEAD

    MAKING MONEY IS THE TRUE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR SOCIETY VISION

    AND TO PROVE IT, THEIR OWN FAMILIES ARE GETTING CAUGHT UP

    IN THEIR GREEDY DECISIONS

    IN SOME HOMES ,WHERE NEGATIVE UNDERSTANDING IS BEING BREED

    WHERE ALL POSITIVE THOUGHTS IS DEAD IN THE KID'S HEAD

    AND THE IDEALS OF PIMPING AND DRUGS LIFESTYLES ARE FEED

    WHAT ARE WE THINKING? WHETHER YOU NO IT OR NOT THIS GENERATION

    IS ON THEIR LAST LEG

    TO ALL WHO THINK THEY'RE LIVING IN THAT COMFORTABLE SAFETY ZONE

    THAT NEXT CONFUSED KID COULD BE YOUR TIME BOMB LIVING IN THE HOME

    THESE KIDS ARE ON A WAR PATH

    AND IF THE DIRECTIONS ARE NOT CHANGED SOON :DON'T EVEN ASK, HOW

    LONG WE'RE GOING TO LAST

    SOME OF US LOOKS AT MISERY AND SMILE
    BUT SOON THESES KIDS WILL SHOW ALL OF US
    THAT THEY COULD CARELESS ABOUT UNDERSTANDING
    MONEY AND DEATH IS THE TRUE LIFESTYLE
    SO IF IT NOT AFFECTING YOU PULL UP YOUR CHAIR AND WAIT
    BUT DON'T BE SUPRISE WHEN IT STARING YOU IN THE FACE
    SORRY!!! IT'S TO LATE

    BE SAFE

    so true
    the streets
    has become the true crime
    of many of our children and
    the action they take
    money and life style they love
    but careless about life and
    another human soul
    it looks at me daily
    as i fight a struggling war
    in the hood

    WRITERS WILL PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN SAVING THE PEOPLE ON THIS PLANET
    IT IS A GREAT POSSIBILITY THAT SOME OF THOSE WRITER ARE RIGHT HERE IN THIS FORUM

    AS I AM A TRUE BELIEVER IN GOD, THE GIFT OF FREE THOUGHTS HAS TO BE
    THE ANSWER.AND AS WRITERS WE'RE THE TOOLS TO BUILD THE FOUNDATION

    BE SAFE

    Being educated in the school of hard knocks is a hard way to learn. This was a very timely piece.
