"Polite" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 20/4/2005

United Kingdom

Kids Seem NOWADAYS ...
To Be .... " Impolite " ....

Well Me I Was Shown ...
That This Just ISN'T Right ... !!!

So I Always Try ...
To Be ... REALLY Polite ...
Before I End Up ...
In A Pointless Gun Fight ...
That May Leave Me DEAD ...
By The End of The Night ... !!!

Some Youth Nowadays ...
Don't Feel A Fist Fight ...
Can Resolve A Problem ...

So ... That's Why I Write ...

To Prove To Young People ...
That ... USING Your Mind ...
Can Be The Best Way ...
To KEEP ... BOTH Your Eyes ... !!!

If You Write ...
USE ... " Insight " ...
And Write What Is TRUE ... !!!

Then Anger You're Feeling ...
Can Just Be ... " defused " ...
Cos' THINKING Can Save You ...
From ... BLOWING A Fuse ... !!!

The Path That You Choose ...
Can Leave Your Face BRUISED ... !!!

Our Future IS YOU ... !!!!!

That's Why I Give Clues ...
On ... How To Live Life ...
WITHOUT Prison Shoes ... !!!

Some of You ...
May Be Thinking ...

It's EASY For Me ... !!!

Well That's Where YOUR WRONG ... !!!!!

I've Seen TRAGEDY ... !!!
From Seeing The BREAK UP ...
of ... My Family ...
To STRAIN On My Brain ...
From Sickness and Pain ........ !!!!!

Which In Turn ...
Proved To Me ...

Life ISN'T A Game ... !!!!!

Dreams Can Be SHATTERED ... !!!!!

So ... What Are Your Dreams ... ?

Well ... WHATEVER Your Dreams ...
VIOLENCE Can TEAR Your Dreams ...
Right From The Seams ... !!!!!

These Things I Have SEEN ... !!!

NOT On A TV ...
Or A Cinema Screen ... !!!!!

My Mother Was Sick ...
For ... Most of My Youth ...

Don't Doubt Words Like THESE ... !!!
These Words Are The TRUTH ...
About ... MY Family ... !!!!!

I've Been On A Journey ...
That MANY DON'T See ... !!!

A Journey I've Wanted To .....
Run From ......................................... BELIEVE ... !!!!!!

But I'm NOT As Fast ...
As ... Linford Christie ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EVEN If I Was ...
One Game You CAN'T BEAT ...
Is ...... REALITY ....... !!!!!!

Goodness Is Something ...
We ALL NEED Like Sleep ........................

And This May Just Help You ...
To Have Faith and LEAP ... !!!

Enabling You ...
To ENJOY Life and Keep ...
Yourself and Your Friends SAFE ...
From Violence On Streets ... !!!

I've Written This Poem ...
To Show You That PEACE ...
Is Something To FIGHT FOR ...

PLEASE .... Listen To Me ... !!!

Do Yourself FAVOURS ...
And Treat People RIGHT ... !!!!!

From Old Folks To Young Ones ...
And Maybe You'll Find ...
That ... What You Get BACK ...
Is Something You LIKE ... !!!!!!!!!

What You PUT OUT ...
Comes RIGHT BACK TO YOU ... !!!

REMEMBER These Words ... !!!
Cos' These Words Are TRUE ...

Trust Me When I Say This ...

It's EASY To FIGHT ....
But NEVER As Easy ...
As Being ........

.... " Polite " ....
