Too Young

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

They say we are too young 
Too young to be depressed 
Too young to know what we stand for 
Too young to protest 
Too young to know ourselves 
Too young to know pain 
To understand death 

And they are right 
We are too young 

We are too young to be afraid of bullets ricocheting off school windows 
Too young to watch them tear into our classmates 
Our friends 
To watch someone who was living and breathing mere seconds ago
