Crime is Happening

Crime is happening,

Happening too much,

Youth are getting into it,

This is difficult to clutch.

Perplexed with fear,

We walk around the streets,

With violence becoming increased.

Distraught, opressed,

Overcome with anguish,

Up to the point when they feel outlandish.

Deprived of happiness,

No-one to turn to,

Desperate for acceptance,

They are deceived wrongly ,

Without a clue.

Brought into the gang,

Taught all the slang,

With all the shanks, daggers, knives,

Putting at risk all our lives.

To stop this occurring,

We must give them love, acceptance, attention,

A safe community,

A secure, welcoming society,

Before it gets too late,

This situation needs intervention.

    You can also say about how to stop it because there are lots of other ways to do that. You have explained why knife crime has been so common -also why it is been happening. You have said it is dangerous for people walking o the streets. I really like your poem.
