North Chicago 02/15/2013

 

One Cold Winter

While Out and About

a Teen Mother

that Dared to have

Goals, Dreams, and Visions

Felled by a Bullet

That was

Intended for Another

Gun Fired

by Yet another Coward

One More of the

Nameless N’er do Well

Hellbent

on Settling Petty Scores

Even if the Cost

be

Countless Life or Lives

What Does Another Matter Anyway?

Mere Collateral Damage

The Price Paid

Typical, Low-Life Gangster Squabbles

Snuffs Out

So Much

In the Way of

Unrealized Promise

Of all The Costs

Of the Innocent Lost

 

How Many More?

When Does It Stop? 

 

How About Now……

 

 

RIP Janay Mcfarlane
