Poem: What We Are

Teenagers, prejudice
Louts and layabouts
Hoodys, scum
Times have changed
Communities rearranged
Knives carried for pride
Cars taken for a joy ride
You only see the bad
All the things that make us mad
You want us to change
But we can’t
It’s how you make us today
We need opportunities
Some sense of responsibilities
We are the youth of today
But we can’t repay to the communities
You’ve taken everything away
Then leave us with the blame

Give us a break,
You get me?

What do you think?
