Knife Crime: Poem


Knife crime: what is it?

Something to joke about, or something to commit?

Our youth has been asking themselves this question,

And this has been given small attention.

The issue of this violence is more than just skin deep,

We won't accept defeat, but until we make ends meet,

We'll feel more and more fearful in the areas of our street.

It's the greatest threat facing us,

Soon leading up to acts that are treasonous,

And if we don't act, or simply discuss,

Our youth community could get destroyed.

Streets, roads, pavements and parks,

These make the youth rebellion spark.

Our youth is encouraged to join gangs,

While we walk pass, without saying a word.

I want to beware the youth from this,

And as they reminisce,

Knives aren't something to miss.
