I dont need a gun by ntswaki mathebula

I dont need a gun

to escape poverty

i dont need to be sucidal

to escape life

i dont need to be a prostitude

to perceive myself personable

I dont need to point fingers

In everything going astray in my life

i dont need to take drugs

to hide from reality

i dont need to be aggresive

to feed my bitterness

I dont need to be ignorant

to spoon feed my worryness

i dont need a mask

to cover my scars

i dont need to compromise myself

to fit in my peers

    I liked this..it has attitude. What I would suggest is this....you tell us what you don't need so maybe try finishing off the poem with what you do need?

    You have a few little typos that are easily fixed...sincerely hope you edit this out because...it has the foundations to be a really good poem.
