In the morning people fight
A drug bust,

an arrest,


a mugging in an alley
The city day begins


At night people fight
A held up gas station,
someone is shot dead
Not only the day...

...but a life ends

On the street, people fight
Gang signs fill the streets
Hoods,

shoelaces,


bandanas
Graffiti on the walls
Trying to scare people

In the homes, parents fight
Kids in their homes
Wonder what they did wrong

In school, students fight
Dealt drugs,

Veiled threats,


Evil glares

The world, with all its wars
Differing opinions
Hidden secrets behind doors
A struggle with the citizens

It’s everyone’s fight,
What do you think is right?
