Drugs and violence everywhere.
Beatings and murders: Families torn apart.
Cohesiveness–Togetherness, is it gone forever?
Love, Love, where forth are thou?
That which supposedly conquers all.
False Hopes–distorted priorities.
Women selling their bodies for material gains
of temporary comfort.
The Next High–The Next Drink.
How long must we continue to suffer?
While waiting for our people to do a reality check.
How many-How many will die in the streets?
Until death takes its toll, as we go through trials
of futile solutions.
While the light ever shine at the end of this tunnel?
Or shall we roam around in blindfolded darkness.
