DEDICATED TO THE FAMILIES AND THE VICTIMS OF THE COLORADO KILLINGS.

*****************************************************************************************

Tragedy anew,

I curl up like a seashell

Blocking out gun fire.

*****************************************************************

Live a fearful life

The absence of awe and joy

I refuse to choose.

*****************************************************************

Forge through cement walls

blood splashed upon the theater

red-purple pain, death.

********************************************************************

Senseless tragedy

What is the meaning of life

Destroyed so quickly?
