Consequences of Crime

Poetry By: Karrr
Mystery and crime

So last year I was put into a program called Teen Court for a misdemeanor. There were a few things we had to do, & one of the assignments involved depicting a teenage criminal's story in a creative way. I decided to write a poem. It is based of an article about some kids who stole a car and it ended in a lot of death so. Enjoy. Mind that it was very rushed and very unedited so bare with me.

a laugh for a life

a day

a night

in which your breath seems to directly influence time

it's all escaping you

but do you care?

How would you know? How would you have known?

but that doesn't matter does it?

Answers without questions

yet you can't even think straight

Unorganized thoughts


Red lights

Blaring sounds

Why didn't you stop?

You could have just


It's overwhelming, even now

Where's your head?

Were you even thinking?

The pure facts pierce through your mind over

and over

Red lights

Blaring sounds

Why didn't you stop?

You could have just


He stopped breathing. His family buried him;

their hearts trembled as they pumped the crimson substance through their bodies, remembering that their loved one's heart could no longer do the same.

but who was he?

do you care?

Of course you do.

Humanity is not without flaws


You took the car


You took a life

& now the incessant thoughts...

Red lights... Blaring sounds...Why didn't you stop?

You can't go back now; you can't stop.
