Why would you
Commit murder
In order
To save
Or
To steal
Replaceable
Materialistic junk
Cars
Clothes
Jewelry
Paper money
Printed by the
Millions
Billions
Trillions
Do you realize
Life is the only
Priceless commodity
On the planet
And if killed
It is a 100% guarantee
That person is gone
Never to be replaced
Like the stuff
Bought
At the mall
Or
At the market
A life
Will not be returned
Exchange for a better model
Crediting back
Because it was lost
Or
Stolen
From the owner
So why
Would you
Go to extremes
Of taking a life
Creating a permanent solution
To a problem
That no one can
Come back from
Could you live
With your conscious
After being taught
Thou shalt not kill
I want to know
Could you live with it
Because there are people
Who do not think before they act
Then find out later
There are some actions
That can not be
Reversed
Undone
Wished away
After a life they took
Is buried six feet deep
Under the cold
Damp and dark dirt
You want to be responsible
For someone’s
Child
Mother
Daughter
Son
Uncle
Father
Not coming home
To them
Think before you act
