March For Our Lives

The youth of this nation
marched across over 800 cities vocalizing frustration
calling for the attention of our government
to make a change for the betterment
to wise up and rise up
with their eyes up
protecting kids and education
rather than guns and dated legislation
for thoughts and prayers
do not show that you care
it’s the decisions you make
for these children’s sake
which will change their day to day
and allow them to play
without dismay
or fears that someday
they will need to outrun
the sound of a gun
these are their concerns
how do you expect them to learn
when every possible turn
down the halls of their school
could place a cruel
destiny in their hands
so please listen to their demands
on these bans
try to understand
we need you to take a stance
so their fate
is focused on play dates
rather than security of their schoolmates
because we chose you to delegate
and legislate
not simply commiserate
and relegate
when we need you to regulate
without a hesitate
so forget your bribes
and put your differences aside
please recognize
that nationwide
as we march for our lives
our voices are amplified
because kids are terrified
so do not act undignified
taking NRA bids
when you should be protecting the kids
