On a dark December day,
tragedy struck the town.
And innocent lives were taken away-
Twenty angels were shot down.

Thought safe in their learning cells,
the day was just as planned.
'Till the devil came,
a loaded gun in his hand.

Running through the children's rooms
was a sensless, mindless fool.
And he can never pay for the crimes commited.
How can someone be so cruel?

Those parents never saw it comming
When they sent their babies away.
They didn't know what was comming...
Thought gone only for the day.

And with no justice from the madman,
he didn't have to pay.
He couldn't face the consequence
so he took his life away.

Such a coward he must've been.
To hurt such little ones.
To kill his family and those teachers,
but what has been done is done.

And now the parents have to deal with
the sadness, pain and tears.
The shadow of death will haunt them
throughout the lonely years.

What makes you wake up and decide you want to kill innocent babies?
All I can ask is why.

A touching and wonderful tribute to what happened that very sad day. I love how you put in your description the name of all those that lost life that day.

This is beautifully written... Reading your poem and seeing the names and ages of all of those poor souls is breaking my heart; I'm tearing up.

Thank you. I just had to find a way to share... And I know, it's just so shocking.. I have little siblings those exact ages, and if some person came and opened fire on them... I dont what I'd do..

That's how I feel about my older brother and my little cousin... I have not even the slightest inkling of what I would do without them...
