Can you hear the kids?
Their parents are screaming
Texts are forever long and never ending
“School is a safe place” though is it true?
Maybe, but the people in it may not be
The kids are running as if they were animals scavenging for life
Phone calls to parents are exchanged
The news is blowing up
This is a tragic thing, but all we have done is publicize everything
When does it stop?
Does it stop when the kids hearts do?
These guns are doing no good
The kids are not either
“They’re okay” as you brush it off your shoulder
But the thing is, these kids are not “okay”
January 20, Winston Salem, North Carolina- May 25, Noblesville, Indiana
These shootings are spreading like a virus
Are the kids still “okay” or are we actually ready to do something?
