Self Destruction and New introduction

I open my eye to only be standing at the gates of hell.

The sign says WELCOME.

The train I rode to get there was going nowhere fast.

You want to buy a ticket, what’s the cost you ask?

A life full of pain and disappointment to all.

Guns, Violence, Drugs.

My feelings are gone. The care I had. NO LONGER there

The life of a perfect child. What’s that?

If you are clinging to the past let go. This world is no place for a child.

Dreaming of a time when your life wasn’t in ruins? Don’t this world is all about self-destruction

People saying you can’t do this or you can’t do that all because of your skin color and were you came from

Police killing young people because they “FELT THREATENED”

Have you ever stopped and thought that could have been me? Don’t because this world is no place for what ifs.

The hopes and dreams you once had are now just a faint memory. Good this world is no place for a naïve child

If you only hope for your dreams to come true you will fall into this world’s self-destruction

You will be the next face we see on the TV

Talking about how you died

The media will only show the bad pictures they find not what you did

You will be another “statistic”

If you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission

Walt Disney once said “all our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them”

So stop falling into this world self-destruction

Opportunities don’t just happen you create them

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”- Eleanor Roosevelt

So why are we allowing ourselves to be another statistic?

Why are we allowing ourselves as young people to play dumb to the world?

Why are we allowing ourselves to get killed or die trying?

Don’t waste your life on this world’s self-destruction
