Two Poems About the Newtown, CT School Killings

4 comments

One Mind, One Pain

He killed his mother

And shot the children too

What caused this deceit of suffering

He could no longer bear

 

What would have made

The difference between life and death

Holy Child

Your innocence remains

You cannot kill what made you

You made you

A divine creation

Remains divine

 

Thank you for your wiliness

To expose the deep of pain

Now we are truly there

In the abyss with you

 

Newtown Horror

We turned our head

And the children were gone

Slain where they stood

In Christmas innocence

Teachers too

A mass grave in an instant

 

The grief is partaken

By one and all

Unable to believe

This could happen

And yet

It did

Love

Can say no

Or stop

Or wait

Only Love knows the truth

About the unspeakable

Voice your grief

Be with the shameless intensity of pain

I am there too

Loving you

    Two beautiful poems concerning the Connecticut school shootings yes but I am angry, very angry. Jesus had moments of righteous anger too. Can I not follow his example in this situation? It isn’t enough to feel their pain. Jesus felt the people’s pain amongst him but he went about doing good, and exposing people for what they were, (the woman at the well for one) and there are Bible verses stating that we are to seek righteous judgement. The Boston bombers had nothing but evil intent on their minds in the name of their God Allah. Jesus did not promote the killing of children. In both the school shooting and the Boston bombing, children’s live were not considered one iota. Jesus said that in Mathew 18:6

    But whoever shall offend one of these little ones which believe in
    me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,
    and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
