Carly Wilson turns the 5pm news on.A loving sweet caring young girl by the name of Shania Wilson has been shot multiple times in a drive by shooting.Tears filled Carly's eyes As a child growing up in the city of Detroit when I turn the television on someone is always getting hurt. For those of you thinking of joining a gang here's your payoff-either prison or death is what to come of it. If you think it won't happen to you so did the 700,000+ gang members who are in prison today.The joke's on you !!!!!

~They were the terror of the hood.
They walked around like they own something.But they were just teens.

A few of his bros got arrested
But why did it matter?
They would be out soon right?
There was fighting almost everyday
With fists,Knives blood and even guns.

Drugs all over the ground.Gunshots heard outside my bed room window, Screams crying bullying.
Everyday people doing crazy things,
But sometimes things go way to far.
I wonder what the community will do or can do.
I have no idea...not a single clue.

I looked at the news one more time 2 dead during a drive by shooting.
They lay on the stretcher like it was a bed.
I always ask my self is this real life!!!
While their mothers stand there in silence.

Gangs what's the point and what do the prove?
Another one of us gone
Another one shot. But Why
Do they think this is a game?
Another life is gone.
Another one lit up.
Once again the lead of a gun took another life
Another one was just shot
Just one bullet is all it takes
Another innocent life undone.

~RIP........Shania Wilson~
