There is no poetry in the violence we witness today.
Consider all the power in the words that we can say.
Careful thought should always be in your advice.
Striving always to encourage others to play nice.
Who wants to see lives lost on the news tonight.
If only the Golden Rule is there, it would be alright.
A young life is lost, and a grieving mother is in tears.
Bringing into reality our concerns and worst fears.
Accepting that, at times, there is no other choice.
I encourage all to reach out with a gentle voice.
Offer a sincere handshake and not a fist.
If not, another friend will surely be missed.
Problems and solutions, ours to work with resolve.
A way for us all to meet halfway, ours to solve.
