Photo 46

I found myself today

I had been lost in the moment

as I walked toward a distant light

I looked upward to see the most brilliant blue

but not to feel it; I breathed deeply

without holding my shallow breath

Beauty filled these brimming eyes as

I stood before an ever-changing world

I saw the hope of my future while

the despair of my past faded from view

And although death’s darkness had

stolen irretrievable bits of my heart

life firmly grasped my waiting hands

They’re killing our babies

They’re KILLING our babies

those multi-bulleted, semi-automatic

man-made, politician pocket-lining

machines; getting into the unheld hands

of the broken-spirited, empty-hearted

spice-laden, alcohol-filled, mind-altered

once-upon-a-time hopefully-optimistic

turned love-voided, sadly-desperate

forever-angered, permanently-deranged

Don’t kill our babies

DON’T KILL our babies

They’ve just left our arms

to grow and learn

meet new friends

We tell them it will be okay

they’ll have fun

as they cling to our legs

fearing the changes

fearing the strangers

as we leave them

They’re killing our babies

THEY’RE KILLING OUR BABIES

but tomorrow someone will

still sell these murder weapons

and the next day

AND THE NEXT DAY

and the next

Why aren’t we storming the Capitol

screaming out the despair of our nation

 that THEY’RE KILLING OUR BABIES

 THEY’RE KILLING OUR BABIES

THEY’RE GOING AWAY

TAKE THESE GUNS AWAY

THEY MUST BE STOPPED

FROM KILLING OUR BABIES
