Growing up in a 4 square radius are flights of stairs and I watched out by the window how they abused the use of drugs, how they smoked themselves to oblivion not giving a care of who was around them, u would hear gangsters luring around every corner, dices rolling as they prepare themselves for there next fix. Who they going rob or kill, The lives they going to ruin to get what they want.

We walk in fear, we let people get the better of us, cussing and disrespecting one another simply because thats the lifestyle they have chosen for themselves. Our kids cannot play outside, you would hear gunshots going off in broad daylight.Bang! another life lost for what? an innocent life that was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.We live by choice and in the unknown, our parents do not see how this affects our young ones. They too busy working and they fear to tell us what is happening around us thinking that keeping these things will keep us protected.We need to be made aware, and not go after what we see, the things we see can be deceiving they aren't always as it seems.

We see things the way we want, because everyone likes it, its what I'm doing, why do we follow? why can't we lead for ourselves and not for others, be the example we seek in others but for ourselves, we rather go and we experiment. We need to be made aware, these people are supposed to be leaders.How do we release our kids into this evil world, they say education is key. How are we suppose to learn when schools are being closed because of gang violence, how are we supposed to become something when everyone around us tells us who we should be.We inhale realitybut it exhales disappointment.

Who were we before the world told us who we should be, think about it. They say when you become something don't forget where you come from, how can you forget where you come from when it scars you, when it is no longer just your memory, when it becomes your story, your life.
