Dedicated to the lives lost due to school shootings:
You were a star student,
You were a star athlete,
You were a future engineer, doctor, lawyer,
Yet your life was cut short.
Those who were led astray,
Those who couldn’t handle what was inside,
Those who were left behind,
Have committed horrific acts.
The government does not take action,
The people cry out in number,
Grieving families and friends are left alone,
Yet, no one hears the voice of righteousness calling out.
Our schools need reshaping and our government needs to act.
