Tears fill my eyes,
Another senseless act of violence
That took innocent lives,
I cannot comprehend why
there is so much hate in our world,
cannot understand why people hate each
other so much,
Cannot understand why no one
does anything to stop these senseless acts,
Why can no one hear what the survivor
is saying loud and clear?
Why can no hear the children’s screams?
Why can no hear the teachers cry?
Why does no hear the grieving mother,
father, aunt, uncle, brother, sister,
aunt, uncle, grandma, grandfather?
Why does not hear the first responders cry?
Those in charge could do something
but choose to do nothing,
Those in charge choose profits,
over priceless lives,
Anger and Grief is all I feel
What is it going to take
to stop violent acts of all kinds?
All I can do is cry.
