On Friday, December 14th, a gunman opened fire on Sandy Hook Elementary. Twenty kids and 6 adults were murdered. A poem for the people in Newtown, Connecticut. You are in my prayers.
twenty lives are wiped away
not to see another day.
twenty families with broken hearts,
and twenty families now torn apart.
twenty kids with futures destroyed,
twenty kids without their toys.
twenty futures left unwritten,
now twenty families without their children.
twenty moms now cry in pain
for twenty kids who died in vain.
twenty kids will never know
what it’s like to age and grow.
to drive a car,
no twenty first kisses
and no twenty first dates
twenty less birthdays
and twenty less proms,
eight less dads,
and twelve less moms.
No twenty weddings
and no twenty first loves
but now twenty more angels
in heaven above.
I hope you enjoyed reading this poem. You’re welcome to copy it and share it with others.
