Christine, Age 16
The following is a poem by one of our Cookies, Christine. It was published with her permission....
What love got to do with it?
When your live is worse than a volcano
because you're feeling it with all kind of pain.
Because your childhood was not perfect
Who can you blame?
When you're taking your anger out on other people.
Because of what you're going through
and things that happen in your life.
When intelligent people
are having doubts about themselves
While ignorant people
have confidence about themselves.
When you beating your wife every night.
Going to the bar and coming home
taking your anger out on your own kids.
When you're trying not to please anybody
but still care what they say or think.
What's love got to do with it?
When you're bullying, hating and criticizing others
you don't even know because you got your head down.
When you're killing, stealing and gangbangin'
Being outside all night trying to get cash
And you will do anything for that.
When you judge a book by it's cover.
You don't know that person's rain
because y'all problem not the same.
You believe you can fly but you running from your own problem
because you ashamed of it.
We all can't get along Because our skin color isn't the same
Or our ignorant comments to one another
Or I'm having a bad day so I gotta take it out on somebody.
When you call this world insane
when it's the people of this world that are insane.
This world is a beautiful thing.
When your mom not there
and your daddy don't care
and you got nobody to look up to you.
Look up to yourself.
If you can't fly then run.
If you can't walk then crawl.
Do whatever you have to do to move forward.
That's what love got to do with it.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
