A Lamentation

I cried this morning

My sadness, nausea, and frustration at the world around me

rolling down my cheeks

pooling at the bottom of my chin


Arguments for the right to bear arms

at the sacrifice of LIVES


Lives of children

Lives of peaceful people


Lives

gone in moments of rage

gone because the mental ailments of others find a way to communicate their hatred and distain for those who may not share the same views in the form of metal and powder


in the form of bloodshed and lives lost

families dismantled


Ending lives

Making themselves Judge, Jury, and Executioner


the false power of brutish behaviors


Can we not evolve past this?

Can we not learn to love one another?

Where has this hatred so deep it's more valuable than life come from?


The questions, though I search

have no answer that satisfies

the heart

the mind

the soul


I see pain

fear

and the loathing of self


a sickness that turns us against our brothers and sisters

a violence that preaches its righteousness

a manipulation that breeds fear and seeks to divide


A LIE

boldfaced, arrogant, and mocking


Bloodstained America

boasting its heaps of dead children and tucking its guns in at night


Madness
