A plane crash and a shooting

Disclosure: this post is a bit morbid and disheartening because of a school shooting in Texas and a plane crash in Cuba.

Today

Is another sad day

 

Lives lost

Perished in seconds

 

Young

Old

 

Mothers

Fathers

 

Children

Humans

 

I googled

“How many people died today?”

 

98 thousand died

237 thousand born

 

There is hope

There is loss

 

Every life

Snatched from the dear grip

Counts

 

Gazing at the real time

Birth and death map

 

Blinking green

An smile stretches on my face

Blinking red

Sorrow pulls my spirits down

 

But I am just a hand

Typing behind a screen

 

I dream to reach

With my impotent hand

And spare a precious life

  1. So sad to hear what has happened. More angry now. Students and teachers should not have to fear for their lives, young people should have not to fear for their lives at school of all places. Imagine students across America just have to expect a shooting, that’s not natural at all. And then to hear Trump give his condolences, no you don’t care at all, all he cares about is if he’s safe, if he was actually worried, he would be stricter on gun control.

    1. Yes, it is just gut-wrenching. I remember going to school and it was my safe place I ca’t imagine what these young kids are going through. Hoping for change…
