The youth are rising.
From left to right. .
From sun down to sun up.
We are not dying.
These guns will not take the youth away from this earth.
So many babies dying.
So many kids going missing.
So many teens going mind crazy.
With weed, drinking and getting in the cars with random folks.
With killing and hurting each other.
The youth are rising.
From left to right.
From sun down to sun up.
We are not dying.
These guns will not take the youth away from this earth. .
The youth are getting tired.
Getting tired of not being listened too.
Getting tired of being thrown under the bus because they’re young.
Getting tired of not having freedom when
The youth in reality does the most work.
We do chores and parents rest.
Yes parents clean every once in a while.
Yes parents work every day.
But, who has a list on the counters with things to do, we do.
So don’t claim, we don’t do anything.
Who applies to jobs every day and then work eight hours a day and only have two days off.
We do.
So many people claims that the youth tries to be grown.
In order for us to learn and try to be grown we have to watch.
And who do we watch.
The grown folks.
They always know more than us.
If we see you drinking, we are going to drink.
If we see you smoking, we are going to smoke.
If we see you littering, we are going to litter.
If we see you drug dealing, we are going to become drug dealers.
If we see you going to the club every night.
Guess what?
We are going to go the club every night.
If we see you with different women and different men,
We are going to be with different women and men.
So don’t treat the youth like crap of what we do
Its a reflection of what we see you do. .
The youth are rising.
From left to right.
From Sun down to sun up.
We are not dying.
These guns will not take the youth away from this earth.
We will get heard.
We will not be thrown under the bus.
Our lives will not end early any more.
We are tired.
The news is trying to make it seem like we are the worse generation of a life time.
Just because a group of teens went into Walmart to see how much they can trash.
Does not mean that all teens are bad.
Just because one young adult shot up a church.
Does not mean all young adults will shoot up a church.
Just because a 12 year old was drug dealing.
Does not mean all 12 year Olds are drug dealers.
What we do is what we see.
We will end this reputation that is put upon the youth.
WE WILL END IT!!
The youth will be in school.
We will get our associates, masters, and bachelor’s degree.
We will go to a 4 year college.
We will succeed in our careers.
We will end this violence.
We will end the killing.
We will end the smoking.
We will end the drinking.
We will end this reputation that is put upon the youth.
We will work and…..
We will become leaders and great mentors.
We will end this non sense that they put about us on the news.
And….
In word of mouth. .
The youth are rising.
From left to right.
From sun down to sun up.
We are not dying.
These guns will not take the youth away from this earth.
We will be heard and..
We will rise.
And one day just like how
“Maya Angelou” says “Still I Rise”
We will say “Still We Rise From Sun Down To Sun Up”
The Youth are rising.
We are not dying.
