Stop.Look.Breath - Poem by Kiersten Marance

Looking at the toy gun
Head tilted in thought
Friends pushing for it to be done
thinking of what you have been taught

Walking into the little store
your feet are heavy
Hoping you parents don't find out
your hands are sweaty

The clerk says hi with a smile
Stop. look. breath
Friends laugh, watching though the window
Head pounding, sighing heave

Rob a store with a toy gun
just to be cool
Laughing out loud at the stupidity
Feeling like a tool

This isn't worth going to jail
Isn't worth the shame
I made a choice
done with this game.
