Young men of wrongful courage and conviction.

Young men of wrongful courage and conviction.
Currently, plague our beloved nation.
In the game of life need to learn
many hard lessons. Without proper
guidance in their world, they seek
the wrong paths.

Without any proper sense of right from wrong,
they most likely become gang members before long.
Older gang members in their 20's
are on the lookout for prospective gang members.
A normal and compassionate way of life,
they willfully fail to remember.

They arm themselves with knives and guns
along with other weapons of destruction.
Their initiation into gang life,
often involves taking innocent lives.

Revenge killings of rival gang members
seem to often escalate. Death without honor
is their ultimate fate. Society needs
to rescue them before it is much too late.

Love as always,
