They believe
Life can not
Get better
And
No one
Will understand them
Yet
They are not talking
When they need to
So they can get through
The struggles
That they are facing
Our teens
Are crying
Day and night
And
Our streets
Are the ones
Hugging
Consoling
And
Using them up
We need to stop this
And bring
Back the village
To help raise
And support
These children
So they
Can complete
Their journey
In becoming
Our future leaders
This society needs
Them 
It is a devastating
Dilemma
If we can
Not solve
This problem
Of why
Our future
Is dying
Preteens
And
Teens
Are hiding
Deadly secrets
Deep inside
Of them
Their minds
Are clouded
With confusion
They need
Someone to
Help them
To let go
Emotions
Trapped
Deep
Within
Them
So we
Have to
Be vigilant
Start paying
Attention
Get them
Talking
And be there
To hear them
Being a
Safe haven
To run to
The signs
Are there
In front
Of you
So stop
Chalking it
Up to hormones
And adolescence
These excuses
Are killing them
And its
By their own
Hands
They are taking
The precious life
Inside of them
When they
Can not deal
With life
And
All its complexity
