Tragic mass shootings,
Mental illnesses,
Why didn’t they do
Anything to prevent
The tragedy?
It is not
Going to go
Away.

False Fire Alarm,
Shots ringing out,
Bang,
Bang,
Bang.
People sprinting,
Looking for a place
To hide, to get
away.

Running out,
Phones in pockets.
Hands in the air.
Crying, screaming, completely
Traumatized.
A day, supposedly
Made for love,
Turned into a day
Of loss.
