I was watching a programme on the knife crimes and its played on my mind ..
I had to write this down :
KNIFE 🔪 CRIME
The dark spirit, it feasts and it thrives.
Spreading fear among families,
These kids , these knives 🔪
Oh what a waste of beautiful young lives.
On the street and in the park,
In the light of day, under the cover of dark.
The blade , gangs .. itís becoming an obsession.
The violence - the hatred - manifesting into anger and aggression.
Is it too late ? Is there something that can be done ?
The next tragic victim .... It could be your daughter , or it could be your son.
This youth culture that we see today, well .. it has to learn to evolve in a much more positive way.
Society must concentrate its efforts on putting these critical issues right.
Only then will we be rid of the darkness, only then we will embrace the light.
A candle 🕯 burns for the the families that have felt the anguish and have felt the pain.
Sadly.. On the news and in the papers it keeps happening again and again 😕
Something has to change,
Somethings gotta give.
Embrace the peace ☮️ people...
Let live , let live
