Changes

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 2:07 pm

 We need to

re-teach

that every person

is whole

with a

living body

a thinking mind

a beating heart

a feeling soul

not just a number

a blip

on a screen

we need to

re-teach

respect

in this society

grown mean

where feelings

compassion and

personal expression

have become

 so minimal

so narrow

so lean.

 

We need to help

the mentally ill

they need to be

treated

not just

deleted

so that disturbing

tragedies

might not be

repeated.

 

We need to also

put control

on such high assault

weapons

not hunters’

not military

not law agencies

or inherited

respectable

proper kept

collections

but those with

auto re-load

and rapid fire

ejections

THOSE are

the calibers

that end up

being pointed in

such unstoppable

tragic

heart breaking

directions.

 

~God Bless the souls and families of all lost and injured in Newtown, CT

God Bless the future of the school and the entire town.

  1. i fully agree. we once knew it, and respected this wisdom, we have forgotten it and should must be re taught.

    • All we are teaching now is people that don’t see the whole person. You are so right too!
