Stop The Violence This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Drugs all over under the ground.
Guns, people crying, putting each otherdown.
People every day do crazy things.
Buying fancy cars and a lot ofrings.
You have nothing to show for yourself.
You're dying on the inside,and you have bad health.
I wonder what the community can do.
I have noidea, not even a clue.
I look in the paper and I see someone dead.
They layon the stretcher like it was a bed.
The mothers stand in silence.
Peopleshould think TO STOP THE VIOLENCE!!!

nice idea, but you were a bit too literal. it leaves no room for the reader to imagine  deeper meaning within the concept of violence. by the way your rhyme scheme needs a little work, you had some wrds that didn't exactly rhyme.

What do we get from violence? death crime, innocent victims. what is wrong with this world. violence is at every corner theres nothing we can do to stop it just hope that it will be some change sooner or later..
