ANOTHER LIFE LOST

 


Heart beating loudly
Deep red liquid spreads across his chest
Another young life lost
In the last moments of his life
He reflects on the way he lived his short life
What brought him to this point?
All the time wasted
Never giving value to his young life
To late now
Did not get to be a man
Just another wasted life
Killing recklessly, dying needlessly
No thought for anyone, not himself or his family
Is your life really worth so little?
Why the eagerness to die
Why is succeeding so wrong
The last moments of his life have wasted away
In the papers tomorrow the head lines will say
Another black youth died today
What have you proven or achieved
By dying this way.
