Gun violence in America has raise dramatically over the past two decades, and the number of murders committed with a firearm is up, unthinkably. I wrote this poem for all the VICTIMS of gun violence‘s and family members left behind to grieve.
” GUNS “
I turn on the radio.
Only to hear about a gun fight.
I turn on my TV.
Only, to watch about a funeral.
A stray bullet hit a little girl.
All I could do at that moment.
Was remembering, Dr. Martin Lutheran Jr. words.
Non- violence is the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time. The need for man to overcome oppression and violence. Without resorting to oppression and violence. Man must evolve for all human conflict a method, which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.
