Failure

Please don’t be alarm but I failed.

I failed to know that this world is dangerous.

I failed to see that are people out there waiting to damage us.

I failed because I thought that were protected in schools.

Because someone now has the guts to walk in them, point a gun and look like a fool.

I failed because I thought that the police would have our backs.

But in reality they charge at an innocent person in packs.

I failed because I thought that men treated little girls princesses and would never touch them in the wrong way.

But hear endless stories about even babies getting raped.

I failed to see the cruelty of this world.

And all that it has in store.

But my eyes are finally open.

World you are not welcomed in.

My doors are finally closing.
