A world so big body so young

how can he overcome scared to go home

nowhere to run

In a book bag hidden is a gun

to young to understand the outcome of his own hands

a mind to young to have choices

heart worn from the beatings

Mercy he begs “Please don’t do this again”

his own blood on his hands he reaches for the bag

crumpled on the floor a young body slain

This fathers task completed  he turns for the door

to young to understand the outcomes of his own hands

he reaches for his book bag to pull out the gun

as he screams “i will be beaten no more”

now a fatherless son beaten by justice

lost are his choices taken is his innocence

he spends his years in this juvenile prison
