I can't begin to imagine
What that poor family is feeling today,
As their son went out to meet some friends
And his life-blood ebbed away.

I can't begin to imagine
The consuming depths of utter despair
Plunging them into hell on earth
Does anyone even care?

This knife-culture is driving me senseless
What happened, what went wrong?
That these gangs are on the rampage
For they know they don't belong.

I can't begin to imagine
How many more young names will be added to the list
Of innocent victims murdered on our streets
Unless we stand up and campaign for the atrocity to be ceased.
