Pardon the pun.
It isn't as big as the sun.
Or as big as the hearts
Of those who had to depart.
Filled with sun and love and warmth.
How did the hatred break through the swarm
And manage to wreck lives upon lives?
Lives that had no chance to say goodbye.
Today is no different from June 12
For today, still there are gunshot reverberations being felt.
Every day brings news of a new attack
Whether on civilians, or the boys in blue is just another fact.
So here was the proposed call to action:
Let hashtag some words and make it trend, like fashion
But words are merely stepping stones to progress
All will remain the same if no one begins the process
Of beginning to show the world what is truly going on
By speaking out loud and rising, like the dawn.
It matters not, what one thinks of our past,
For our future is holding, but will soon end fast
If we fail to end the hate and the violence,
Soon nothing will be left but the shadows, and the silence.
