How Can We Stop It?

They need help

it is that simple

it is that easy to

see they need help

their vision lost

of the best they

can be their vision

distorted by every past

shooting spree

that every page on

the net tags so famously.

They play games today

that lack real

places

that lack real

races

of people that

have real

hearts

real faces

who would actually

die in the

violent car chases

seen by kids today

barely old enough

for braces

who learn

how to burn

with no real

concern

for social

consequences

or societal

disgraces.

I am not one

who believes that

a gun

should totally go

away

removing the rights

of those who

hunt or

properly display

but somehow

and somewhere

there needs to be

underway

a solution

to keep them out

of hands

that will

kill

the innocent

today.

~Miguel
