She dreamed a sea of dreams – wondered what they mean – wandered in her dreams
Life as it seems is not as easy as we’d like it to be
Eyes water – results from broken concrete where bodies lay – not expecting it to be their time
Innocence is mistaken for weakness – positivity sometimes receives negative outcomes – we’re fighting over bread crumbs
Flashy fashions just to get acknowledged when the world is so much bigger and we exhale only little knowledge … wake up
Tip-toeing around society pointing fingers when it’s obvious that in truth, we’re all guilty
Guilty for loving only when it’s convenient
Guilty for lending our time only we recognition is in place for social media praises
Guilty for bringing children into a world where we have yet to lay a proper foundation for self – so we struggle for wealth
Guilty for not first expanding our minds so that we know a universe to introduce to the youth – a different way of living
A broadened horizon
Guilty of limiting chance
Society is misguided from the skewed opinions of the news to the sensationalized readings via media
Death reports rise high – the problem growing bigger but the solution thinning out
We recognize it and ask what can we do ? Are there real working solutions (credit cetindag)? Does this thing stem from so long that we’re at the point of no repair?
Fear – we have to induce strength – we have to induce mental capability and knowledge – we have to induce genuine love
WE HAVE TO STOP KILLING CHANCES
Keep Dreaming but in the meantime Act on those dreams
Created by A.J. Linton and Powered by Ashley ‘Snow’ Harris and LaToya ‘Toi Talese’ Cross, the Don’t Kill My Chance Campaign visually emphasizes the pains of the city as it relates to senseless violence and the loss of youth. Our hope with this movement is to direct and focus the social lens on the endurance of life and allowing children an equal opportunity and chance to grow up and live the life of their dreams and desires.
Join us in our movement to raise peace and opportunity. Hear No Evil. See No Evil.
