Why Kids Join Gangs

I think the reason kids choose to join gangs is because they feel left out and not loved. So when a gang shows a kid that they'll always be there for them and shows some love, gives them some money, that makes them think bein a homie is the way to go. For example, that's the reason I got jumped into my gang because I never had a father or that love and money. And when you get into that gang life, it is addicting because you get used to all the things gang life has to offer. In my opinion, I think that there is nothing adults can do to prevent kids getting into gangs, because it's the kids choice, not theirs. Gang recruiting is the number one priority so the gang will do anything to get a kid in a gang and if adults try to stop recruiting, they might get hurt or killed.

True Facts

A place where some are never going home. A place where you gotta be told what and when to do it. A place where they show no love, give dap instead of hugs. Some cry, some smile, but the majority are senile. You're waiting for what seems forever, you got some not believing you won't come back and others giving you strength and courage to even believe in yourself that you won't come back. You got the lies, fairy tales and drama, then you got your twice a week phone calls to Mama. Have no fear, just wait till the nightmare disappears. Start a new life with a new you and eliminate bad peers.

It may not matter, it may not. It may.
But what do I know?
I’m the girl in your dreams,
But today I’ve come to tell you that
You can succeed in life just as much as me.
I’m not really here
I have to rediscover myself before I step out of my cycle of life and death
But I want to stay here, in this lifetime with you
Because my consciousness has created my with flesh and blood
I love you… You’re beautiful, you’re special, and you’re...’re you.
I can bring you up with me,
If you would just believe and let me take you
To an imaginary world that you have never been
You’re mind is limited
But I can rescue you
From this earth, this life
You think this is bad, this life?
Not while I’m here.
And maybe you don’t believe
But I’m not really here.
I shall offer my hand and grant you immortality
I’ve never, in all my lifetimes, met anyone like you.
Open your mind, open your heart and trust me
Trust me to be with you every night even though I’m not there
Because my soul will remain by your side
I’m not dead, because I was never alive…
My love is pure and chaste, like a pond of perfect pearls.
It’s warm like the summer’s eve, so soft.
Chocolate for your soul
An ever-growing desire to be by you,
Because my liquid love bleeds for you
It’s in your subconscious,
But it’s there.
…My love for you.
Open your eyes and you will see me
I will rebirth you to a new life, because I love you.

What Is It That You Want?

What is it that you want?
My friendship or my soul
Will it add on to my life?
Make me whole or break me down
Are you looking to tear me apart?
What is it that you want?
My Body or my Heart?

The New Me

Well today is May 7th. I’m feeling kind of good cause I am looking forward to going home soon .Plus, when I go home I will have a job .My mom said that she is looking into me going to “ Job Corps “ . I think that is the best thing for me to do right now because I can’t seem to stay out of trouble in the environment I stay in. It will do me some good cause then I would be around new people. No detractions for once in my life time.LOL. Sooner or later, I’ll be out of school in off to college. Just call it the new TW. Better actions. Responsible. Independent. Better Me!!!!!!!

Trouble Just Follows

It was a Friday morning I woke up and my grandmother told me that I had court for my trespassing charge in Pentagon City Mall. I was kind of scared because I live in Maryland and everybody knows that Virginia doesn’t play. I was hesitating on whether I should go or not thinking about my plans for the weekend; I decided not to. It was basically like I put my fun time in front of my priorities which could have been the dumbest thing I had ever done. My judge was Judge Wiggins; I had already heard so much about her before even meeting her. I pictured her being like Judge Judy. I would later find out nope not even close. My judge was more lenient and fair then Judge Judy and the way people described Wiggins they siced it. I didn’t let my worries get the best of me. I partied hard that weekend just thinking about what might go down that following Monday when I turn myself in. April 20 I went to court and my judge ordered a Detention Hearing for failure to appear in court. She ordered that I be detained until May 6, which was my next court date. I had then realized she had just given me 15 days for failure to appear; boy was I blown. I had no one to be mad at but myself because I made that decision not to go so I had to suffer the consequences. I have court on May 18 and May 20 for petty and grand larceny. I have never been on probation, done any community service, taken any classes, house arrest, or nothing, so maybe she’ll let me off with any of the above. I wouldn’t mind doing any of those. As long as I don’t have to be in here, I’m good because I can’t stand this place. I learned that (North Virginia Juvenile Detention Home) is not the place to be. It’s not BAD but it’s not GOOD either. I love my freedom and never will I do anything to jeopardize that again. I’ve learned my lesson is what most people say but I’m not most people. I want to do something with my life and actually be someone kids younger than me can look up to. I’ve had enough and am ready to close this chapter in my life and start out fresh. I’m done with the past: out with the old and in with the new.
