I began to read about the news
I could only reach ¾ of the article
I began to read about the death toll
I also read about the wounded
I then seen the total of people fled.
I just had to stop reading more
I can’t believe this tragedy
I hear these people’s cries
I understand their moment of pain
I know of the anger they feel.
I see so much loss in their life
I feel empathy to their hurt
I know sorrow fills their minds
I understand tears fall easily
I know the heart is aching.
I know you are struck in terror
I realize you witnessed evil
I wish this battle ceased fire
I know deterrents were in the way
I pray for it to end soon.
