What To Do?

Extracts from this document...


WHAT TO DO? Its hard enough being a teenager, but being a teenager in this ghetto slum just depresses me. Every night I am awoken by the sound of gunshots or once in blue moon police sirens. The only way I can describe it is like a food chain, the gangs are the hawks and people like myself are the terrified mouse, and we play by their rules and no one else's. Most of the kids my age in this area are into drugs, drink and everything else bad I do have one good friend though, his name is David, and he's a life long friend.

The culprit slowly put down the weapon "sorry you have to see me like this." He murmured almost trying to disguise his voice as he slowly crept round. My heart fell in my mouth as he gazed into my eyes; I was in a state of shock and horror. I felt sick and out of breath "David" is all I managed to say as he calmly climbed up the fence and ran without looking back. I went back to an empty home dizzy with thoughts and dazed in emotions. I pondered over what to do for over an hour; go against everything I had learnt on the streets or do what was right by the law?
