Some Common Sense

a murder, a tragedy
it's become everyday
we mourn and cry
then move on with our lives

an innocent life taken
so someone
can get the drugs
they're so addicted to

a person killed
so some gang member can say
i've dominated you
i'm better than you

but they're not better
no human is better than the next
we're all the same
and we're all in this together

and the sooner we realize this
the better off we'll all be
the better the world will become
and the stronger we'll be united

we don't have to take murder
rape, or some other tragedy
as something that happens everyday
change it

I like this! it talks about everyday life at first, and I agree, we are all equal NO ONE is better than anyone else! Its deep, but for me, sometimes I write things and rework them, months after becuase I think they'll make more sense or sound better some how, so at first try to rework it, but I really like it, its my fav. from all your work that I've read so far :)
