17 | Never Again.

"17" by Eric Christopher Jackson

17

It has to end.
How can people defend
the senseless taking
of Innocent lives

When going to School
leads to cruel intentions
Blood is shed…spilled
Death
It has to end.

From Gun Violence
In 2012
to those killed
Today
Will it ever end?

Or should the question be
Do the Lobbyists, Gangs, & Dealers
Do the Politically Correct & NRA Members
Do the passers-by & Corporations say

Surrender
The Second Amendment will Stand
And these Lives will continue to End
A Life is not more Valuable
than the Right to own a Gun

Dare to Question the Priority
Dare to Speak the Truth
Dare to Demand Justice
Dare to Proclaim

Never Again
17 did not Die in Vain
