Gangs - Poem by Shawanda Polk

Gangs are no good
There are so many gangs
I just don't know what to do
At the corner
At the store, even at every block
At school
It may seem cool, but its not
You may want to be in a gang
Why?
What for?
Once you get in a gang
You might like it in the beginning
But soon another gang wants to fight
I promise you, you may start to dislike
Imagine how your mother feels
Imagine how your father feels
They are very frighten
They are super scared
You might get shot
You might get beat up real bad
You might......... anything might happened
So think before you get in a gang
A gang is not risking your life for
Once you lie, you just might die
So think twice
