Shots in the background

Sun, 05/08/2016 - 11:39 -- nitz123

Shots in the background but everyone just ignores them, for if they dare to care they'll 

be the next reason why they are there shots in the background but society pretends not

to hear, for if they pay attention is the american dream even real we all then let these

shots in the background grow louder and louder because we're too scared to mess with

America's image we're too scared to stand up for what we beleive in we're too scared

of the shots in the background So shots in the background but our fear makes us look

away because the fantasy we dream of is enough to take us away from the reality we

truley live in Shots in tne background but now its too powerful to stop. Shots in the

background but will it ever come to an end leading me to say this poem is for the kids

who are forced to do their homework while there's shots in the background this poem 

is for the parents who are forced to see their kids flinch everytime there's shots in the

background this poem is for the victims who were lost in the loud ringing shots and 

were forgotten because we were all too busy pretending these shots weren't real 

sshots in the background but will anyone be brave enough to listen
