"When it’


Can you tell what's on my mind?
Can you envision this gun in my hand?
Do you have any idea
What's going to happen next?

Can you hear these words
Coming from my mouth?
Do you understand
What I'm feeling now?
Do you have any idea
Why I'm ending your life?
It's my world now
And you're just living in it.

Just calm down
Don't worry now
I'm gonna slow down
Take this easy
Slowly pull the trigger
(Can you see the light?)

Can you hear these words
Coming from my mouth?
Do you understand
What I'm feeling now?
Do you have any idea
Why I'm ending your life?
It's my world now
And you're just living in it.

It's a yes or no question
Think about it carefully
Because these could be
Your last words.

Do you believe in GOD?


The author's comments:
This piece is about Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. For those of you who don't recognize the names, they caused the Columbine massacre in '99. They killed 10 teens and then themselves, because of one yes or no question: "Do you believe in God?"
They made their decision and now they are paying the ultimate consequence.

Nice work :) It makes you think, what would you say if someone put you in the position

those two teens put the hostages in. Would you stand up for what you believe by saying yes?

Gerard Way: "Hey, girls, you're beautiful. Don't look at those stupid magazines with sticklike models. Eat healthy and exercise. That's all. Don't let anyone tell you you're not good enough. You're good enough, you are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you're a size 4 or 14. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you're a good person, as long as you respect others. I know it's been told hundreds of times before, but it's true. Hey, girls, you are beautiful."

I think it was an amazing idea to right something from their perspective. I recently did a paper on Columbine, and I the way you depicted this is powerful.
