....?

He was full of life

Until that day-

Always smiling

Always trying

Never quitting



Very babbly

Called his friends-

Dashing through the hallways

to be the first one to help.



I remember him

Watched from

Cold, deadly eyes-

By his teammate

After he became the

Captain of his beloved team.



I recall him telling me his accomplishment

With great anticipation in his voice,

But I wish I knew

What his teammate was planning

That led to an assault and wildness.

So, I could stop the rigorous action.



I wonder what we were thinking

The last memory of our happiness

Before the gun shot

Leaped him down

while he was still full of life.



How can he die, but not me?

A person who brought everything to life-

Why?



I tried all my might

To save him;

Bring him back to life.

But, instead he drifted away.



How can I be myself again?

Seeing my dear friend-

That day will never run away,

But will come hurt me from day to day.



Devastated and heart broken

I knew I had to get help,

Report the killer

To put his soul in peace.



Isn’t this insane?

Killing someone who’s always portrayed kindness?

Isn’t it selfish to attack a person for achieving his dreams?

Isn’t love, freedom, and faith the meaning of life?

So, why violence?



One life,

One chance,

Instantly moved from a bloom to a foul play.

Is this true?? It is so sad. Last year a girl from my school was killed in a car crash and it was really hard for the whole school because she was always so happy. Nice work!
