The senselessness of it all: the taking of innocent lives
Is digging into my heart, like so many sharpened knives
What enters into such a mind to move a person to hate:
Shattering the lives of so many, a rescue coming too late?
Bodies are lying all over and lives wont ever be the same
A gunman randomly shooting, killing people without any shame
Why did you enter that theater with such cruel intentions to kill
What were your core motivations: a massacre became your thrill?
My eyes are overflowing with tears for those who remain
The weeping of so many broken families creates in me great pain
How many more helpless victims will fall beneath the gun
Before this country's leaders realize something must be done?
