We're trying
I swear we're trying
To get through the cheating, the lying
To push through the sorrow, the crying
We'll keep defying
But they're dying
The gun shots rang
We cry out for change
Yeah we're trying
Just wish you could say the same...

I was going to call this poem "Us Teens", but I realized that teens aren't the only ones suffering from this. We're all being affected by this and so we're all in this together.
