"We're in the present not the future. The only thing we can do now is listen to our hearts and pay for it later with the satisfaction of knowing we did something actually worthwhile." -Jasmine Garver


Hearing the Sirens singing all through this town
Makes me want to cover my ears so I don't hear that sound
Want to get up and reach out to all those girls and boys
So they never learn how to play with killing dangerous toys
Seeing the aftermath makes me want to cry and scream with rage
Wishing all those stupid idiot kids would just act their age
It doesn't matter if you're this or that
Or if you simply wear a red colored hat
Everyone should see, Be happy with what we've got
Or in the end we'll lose our one only shot
We're so lucky to be individuals and one of our own
Or would you rather be locked up and feel all alone?

One Day I was sitting on my bed and then I hear and see an Ambulance racing down my street. It just made me think of all the gun crimes in my town.
