Deep Sadness

I watched this young boy declare

on live National TV

that he was prepared to go down fighting

he picked up a bat;

thinking he could fight off

a killer with a gun.

Did not catch his name

but I will never forget his sweet face.

This statement saddened me so much.

My guess is that he was maybe ten years old at most.

 

Tragedy by gunfire once again

entered a habitat of learning,

A charter school,

and robbed youngsters of their childhood once again

and ripped them of their innocence once again.

 

Deep sadness!

Fifteen shootings and only

19 weeks of school!

2 weeks, 2 shootings, and two brave young men murdered.

Deep sadness!

Rage, Prayers and We continue to just watch.

Evil!

More prayers!

When?

Where?

How many more?

Deep sadness!

Deep Sadness!

 

  • “Now comes the pain of truth, to whom ’tis pain;

o folly! for to bear all naked truths,

and to envisage circumstance, all calm, 

that is the top of sovereignty.”
