A thought penetrates a deranged mind,
an excellent mind by some standards,
The thought becomes obsessive
No one can fathom the motive or
the thinking that journeyed
through what was once
considered a beautiful mind
Can we even try to justify
an act of cruelty so huge?
Planned out carefully? Premeditated?
How? How come no one noticed?
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
