THOUGHTS

G.U.N.S.

G.U.N.S.

Back in the day
No one walked around
“strapped”
We played dominos, ate penny candy and we slapped
High fives on the black hand side
Now Gen X Y and Z carry
.350’s and magazines
Back in the day

We didn’t have to watch our backs
Looking over our shoulders
Real men put their guns down and
Their fists up to show black power
And their aim to fight
They fought like no limit soldiers
What happened to the real thugs?
Have we lost our minds?
Why do we hide behind guns?
Why don’t we fight with our minds?
Meanwhile our youth are dying senselessly
Day after day time after time
More bodies pile up in caskets than classes

Why does the music culture think guns are so fun, HIP and so
Cool?
Yes we have lost our minds
What do we do?
We asked President Trump, the Senate, the House and the Pope
But so far no answers
Still looking for hope
Still looking for hope
Still looking for hope
While we bury our babies and try to cope
With the loss
Each day we count the cost of so many live lost
Lost track of each live we lost from Maryland to Chicago to Orlando
Now we want to arm our teachers to protect our kids in school
Back in the day this wasn’t the golden rule
Sandy hook, Columbine, Club Pulse

We can’t forget
Instead we should be armed with knowledge
Vision and degrees
Not strapped like 50 cent
Change is what we need
And Action
Take heed
Where are the leaders of today?
If Martin and Malcolm X, Huey Newton and Marcus Garvey were alive
What would they say?
GAIN AN
UNDERSTANDING
OF
WHO WE ARE – WEMUST
TURN FROM OUR
JOURNEY TO PREMATURE DEATH
QUESTION: WHEN WILL THIS
GENERATION OF SOCIAL GENECIDE, HOMOCIDE AND MEDIA- INDUCED INFLUENCEDetry, Poem,
SUICIDE EVER CHANGE?

HERES A QUESTION FOR YOU?
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
SO WE CAN
NEVER
EVER
BE THE
SAME
OR ELSE
GENERATION X Y AND Z
WILL CERTAINLY BE THE END.
G.U.N.S
GAIN AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHO WE ARE NEVER EVER THE SAME
