School Shootings. Thanks dollarphotclub!
School Shootings.
Thanks dollarphotclub!

So many lives were lost before the gun was fired

Destroyed by a time and place beyond all humanity

What drives someone with their whole life ahead to grow so tired?

It truly is our lowest when the youth disdain life with such profanity

~

Let us please destroy television and gaming instead of our young

Empower them with loving kindness and tender compassion

Let not their lives come to an end, their many beautiful songs unsung

Are they not more important than money, politics hate and fashion?

~

Love them, honor them if we want humanity to progress exponentially

Let them pride their spiritual acquisitions above the crass materialism

Destroying them is not acceptable please, please face this spiritually

Must have the strength to be teachable above and beyond all our schisms.

I’ve started a petition on “Care2petition” called “Save Our Youth” and invite you to sign it.

Thank you for your consideration! ❤

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
