Kids Just Being Kids

A self esteem now whittles away
Each word is a landmark in decay
When lifeless minds are blown to pieces,
We soothe the pain with a line that eases:
Cruelty excused
For the kids just being kids

The hallway serves as an unsafe land
For the verbal abuse, for the physical hand,
For the perfect storm that brews in the halls,
For the bullet bleeding on the closet walls
Cruelty excused
For the kids just being kids

The angel on their shoulder
Meets the devil in their tongue
Could we solve by growing older,
Or let waste away while young?
The problem is not maturity
Viciousness taints the youth's purity

The victims won't wait for things to improve
But don't be alarmed, as suicide will soothe
The victims make the final move
To exterminate and remove
A meaningful life
As the bullies twist a verbal knife

The body hanging in the rafter
Might halt the taunts and endless laughter
But a moment too late
For the kids just being kids
