LET US ALL LIVE ...NOT IN FEAR


CRIES OF ANGUISH
POUR
FROM THE DEPTHS OF MY HEART
TEARS OF SADNESS
FLOOD
FROM REDDENED EYES
HOPELESSNESS
SURROUNDS ME
IN WORDS SPOKEN
BY MEN WHO DO NOT KNOW.........
CANNOT COMPREHEND
THE INEVITABLE.
THREATS OF MANY
FALL
IN THE CORNERS OF MY MIND
LIKE NEEDLES THAT STAB
TO REMIND
MY EXISTENCE IS NOW
GRAB WHAT I CAN
AS TIME MAY BE STOLEN
WHEN LEAST EXPECTED
I FEAR ONLY OF
PHYSICAL PAIN
FOR MY CHILDREN
DEATH IS FATE
IF WHILE I AM HERE
I CAN REACH
TEACH
WORDS
THAT CAN BE UNDERSTOOD
LAWS TO CHANGE
STILL I AM UNSURE
OF WHY I AM STILL LIVING
REASONS ON A HIGHER PLAIN
NOT EXPLAINED
TO ME
......YET
I TRAVEL MY MIND
IN SEARCH OF ANSWERS
A MAGIC WAND I NEED
IN ORDER TO SUCCEED
WHY IS IT....
EVIL HAS THE UPPER POWER
IN THE FACE OF JUDGEMENT DAY?
WHY CANNOT LOVE
AND BEAUTY REIGN?
TIME SPENT HERE
...IS SMALL
AND THE REAL TEST LIES AHEAD.
OF WHICH EVIL
WOULD FAIL........
SURELY?

What an emotional painting.Makes you stop and think deeper. The world is full of people filled with hate, anger and malice.Our job should not only be to try to protect the victims, but to educate the minds of future generations to not committ the crime in the first place.It's a long road ahead I feel before any real changes are made I am sorry to say.Your stand is the beginning. The more people that hear you, the louder your voice will become.
