Camden

Blood
Gone
People
Gone
My city
Gone
Why is this happening?
Why do they need violence here?
Especially in Camden
And other places too
Why do we need to kill people?
What did people do them?
They didn’t deserve it
We need to stop
To late, its gone
I’m so confused and I’m only 12
Not many 12 year olds know that much about Camden
Well I do
This isn’t fair
To me or anybody
On Easter as I heard gunshots
Someone is dead
Gone
Why are people killing other people
We need peace
I said peace
Because we can’t because peace
Not now, not never
Gone
