Sorrowful

I’m tired of turning on the T.V. or reading the newspaper about some tragic death due to someone pulling the trigger. When does it get old? We lead in gun violence as a country and this not bragging rights. This should be a message.

I am an empathetic person, I can only imagine the agony the family of the victims are going through. It seems like a dark future a head of us as a nation. I would like to stay neutral about the situation because I believe in owning a gun as long as you’re not insane.

Sometimes, I wonder how parents are talking to their children about the horrific reality about gun violence. How do families cope when someone took a loved ones life too soon?

Here is a piece called, “Sorrowful” written by me, Anangell Murray:

SORROWFUL

By Anangell Murray

The world is so sorrowful.

A weapon once used becomes powerful.

Eyes with torrential tears.

The heart hurts and full of fear.

Can’t trust your own peers.

Cherishing those admired and dear.

Once a victim, the message becomes clear.

The world is so sorrowful.

A weapon once used becomes powerful.

Picking out burial clothes today.

Family and friends sadden and in dismay.

En route to the hospital to pray.

Floral arrangements and sympathy cards on the way.

Lifeless they lay.

Sorrowful.
