Really? Again?

 

Really? Again?

A thought penetrates a deranged mind,

an excellent mind by some standards,

The thought becomes obsessive

destructive, shackled

and imprisoned.

No one can fathom the motive or

the thinking that journeyed

through what was once

considered a beautiful mind

Really? Again?

Where? How?

Can we even try to justify

an act of cruelty so huge?

Really?

Planned out carefully? Premeditated?

How? How come no one noticed?

Really? Again?

When will it end?

– Melba Christie

 

*May all the fallen victims of today’s tragedy in Aurora, Colorado rest in peace.  God bless the families left to ponder and grieve. A sad poem was born today.

 

Some food for thought:

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

– ISAAC ASIMOV

All violence is the result of people tricking themselves into believing that their pain derives from other people and that consequently those people deserve to be punished. ~Marshall Rosenberg
