Army Mom’s Safe Haven

SOME THOUGHTS

We talk and talk
We try to understand

the whys and wherefores
when one takes gun in hand

and takes the lives of innocents
without a second thought.

We need to make some sense
of something that does not.

We ponder and we wonder
We dissect his words and woes;

we watch the way his eyes move,
his body language, and his clothes.

We can’t understand the anger
We can’t understand his pain

He doesn’t think as we do;
that is very plain.

We have scrutinized and
torn apart
in several different ways

the things he said
the things he did
and are still left in a daze.

Here is my conclusion
for the little it is worth:

Let there be no illusion ~
Evil walks upon this earth.

We’ll never know the wherefore,
we’ll never understand,

the ramblings of a tortured soul
who takes a gun in hand

and kills so many innocents
without a second thought

We can’t make sense of something
that goes against all we’ve been taught.

So, remember them with flowers,
with candles and with prayer;

and a promise to ourselves
to tell our loved ones that we care.
