Tragedies and Atrocities
by Kathryn Taylor
The tragedies and atrocities,
which stops us all in tracks...
The loss of life so senseless
by random violent acts...
Each soul tries to reckon
their thoughts and racing fears...
Comprehension eluding minds,
hearts riding rapid tears...
Not one word of consolation
or enough well wishes said,
can take away the wretched pain
as we count the numbers dead...
We demand laws and boundaries...
We demand more freedom loss,
thinking it will end barbarity...
We're too numb to count the cost !!
No amount of legislation
could ever stop this war,
the war between good and evil,
this world's unwanted whore...
How I wish it were so simple...
How i wish that laws were enough,
but the wickedness of heartless minds,
will always call it's bluff...
By law, we took GOD from schools...
By law, we sent HIM away...
When tragedy walks through it's door,
we run to the church to pray....
So be careful, dear sweet America,
of what you set into stone...
'Cause we'll have to live with the choices
of all the seeds you've sown...

As the days following the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre unfolded.....it was frightening to hear what the news people and legislators wanted to do in order to stop the unstoppable from happening.....gun control will not stop these deranged people
