Lives Stolen

lives stolen…
taken away in a gun flash
robbed of the future…
the one you wish you had
what was it that caused you to do it….
that caused you to be so mad
to make you want to blot out another’s light
then turn around and take your own life
what turned you so dark and grim
destroying those who wanted to live
was your life filled with that much anger
rage was all that you could see
fear was all that you could hear
hate was all that you could feel
you wanted to leave this world in a blaze of glory
leave a gory mark that no one would forget
so you took the innocent with you
knowing no one would ever miss you
replaced their happiness with your anguish
their love for your selfishness
their lives with your cries
for what purpose did you achieve this
and done just before Christmas
left behind are empty beds
and unopened gifts
no smiling faces with hugs followed by I love you’s
broken hearts scattered all over the nation
none can give any explanation
doubtful none ever will
