Rainbows or Solids

Experience or Knowledge

Christian or Atheist

No matter what, here he is.


This is a child.

This is someone's worthwhile.

He is loved by someone, 

But now his life his done.


This act of violence, 

This senseless defiance

Brought a mother woe

And an angel early to home


So Yes or no

To stay or to go

Tear down or create

To love or to hate


This was a child.

This was someone's worthwhile.

He is loved by many,

And their love was plenty.
