"evolution takes what we are, and gives us what we will be." ~me

they closed their eyes and held hands,
walked past the bodies of their friends.
the short lives lost to take a stand,
no time for hobbies or play pretend.
innocence lost,
for the soul remains scarred.
is this the cost,
a piles a bullet shards?
a broken mind,
a confused soul.
trying to find,
but instead he stole.
this is a tragedy,
this is a massacre,
this is happening.
the mixing pot we stir.
this isn't the solution.
this isn't his fault.
the reason is confusing,
this we must halt.
