I feel pain, my tears fall
as pictures show the terror and angst,
of children, women and men
Bleeding, terrified, confused.
Their pain is indescribable and all this
Because of one mad and power hungry man.
How do these murderers get so far?
How did they get so many to obey,
Answer us now, why and how.
Did they follow this bully turned killer?
From the schoolyard and on,
are they so scared that a NO
might make them victims too?
Sun is shining this morning and I watch
people walking their dogs, children go to school.
It isn’t so difficult to live in peace
