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?
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.
