Taking Back Our Future - Poem by Dwayne Bailey

Being born and raised in L.A. County,
I've seen alot of sin;
I've heard the gun shots ring out at night,
and seen the evil from within.
I've seen the drug dealers and prostitutes,
at night as they work their beats;
I've seen gangbangers shoot each other,
right out on main street;
What has happened to our society,
where to turn our back is okay?
To the point it not even safe anymore,
for our children in the front yard to play.
It is time we take back our neighbor hoods,
united we all must stand;
And take back our streets for our children,
once again place our future in our hands.
