Not exactly a poem, just a vent piece of my safety at school.

My Safety Down The Gun Barrel

I am a teenager.

I am not target practice.

How am I supposed to feel safe with airport level security in my school?

How am I supposed to feel safe when so many schools deny the facts of the shooter and not acknowledging his mental state?

Everyday, I fear that a fellow pupil or adult comes and will end my life or my fellow students.

Everyday, I fear the words of "Lockdown. This is not a drill" over the intercom.

Everyday, I fear that a text message of fear and worry will be the last thing my parents get from me.

I should not be worried about a gun being pointed at me.

I should be worried about the English test I have later in the day.

I am a student.

Not. A. Target.
