Violent Crime Poem

Violence, corruption, sorrow,

When will this be over, when will life be peaceful again?

Murder, abduction, terrorism,

The society crumbles.

Vulnerable, targeted, endangered it makes me feel,

Panic-stricken. Can I leave my house now?

I don’t know, the fear of being attacked won’t let me go.

Daunted they make me feel.

Fear arises within me as I feel dangerous souls come toward me.

I make a run for home. It’s too late. This is it for me.

My final chance to show them I’m not just their helpless victim,

I’m not just their weak sufferer.

I will not go down. I will rise. I will fight for justice,

I will fight for safety. For peace, for freedom.

I will fight.
