To Pay The Price

Dedicated to Trayvon Martin and all others who have lost their lives to senseless acts of violence.

‘To Pay The Price’

What price must be paid for being a man?

One limb?

One voice?

One life?

A child of the world,

Onward to becoming a man.

Stripped of his chance.

Will never know what he could have become.

Will never witness his rite of passage.

Will never know the man.

Lost to violent hands.

A lifeless limb.

No voice to cry out.

A life that was taken in the end.

Such an unfair price to pay for simply being a man.
