Gun Control! Headlines will shout.
No violent games! Seeking an out.
Families with no babies to hug tonight.
Fists clench. Fight! Fight! Fight!
Gun, stick, rock, bomb. Bang. Gone.
Hatred needs only willing hands. One.
Questions with no answers. Ever.
Again, we ask. Answer – Never! never
Brother against brother, hand or stone.
Violence only seeks slaves. To own.
Promises from pulpits cry. Empty. Why.
We can’t beat hatred with more hate. Sigh.
Hold your babies now. Closer. Tight.
Remembering love, grace. Light.
Withdraw from the horror. Turn away.
Stop feeding the news machine. Pray.
The words are all jumbled up and this is what came out when I was thinking about today. How we can’t hate the hate out of someone. We can have gun control but what about hate control? Self control?
