Law and Peace

Law and Peace

A Poem by Double T

After hear the events that has happen in the past couple of day, I decided to write this poem out of inspiration.

Officers serve the law 
They are human beings 
Just like us 
With feelings and emotions 
They just want to do good 
At what they do 

When an officer makes a fatal mistake
out of hate 
It divides the community 
Like a math equation 

What the community wants 
is change in the system 
A perfect solution 
for a natural conclusion 

Killing an officer out of hatred 
shows the hate 
But it doesn't clam the fire down 
It only makes it stronger 

If you put a bullet 
into the police 
Your'e not only putting it through the window 
But through the heart of our nation 

Show them a different solution 
Not through hate 
But through love 
For love holds the community together 
Like a bow holding a present together
