32 fallen


(the Virginia Tech Tragedy)


32 fallen

32 dead

felled by a gunman

who took his own head


some search for reasons

some just for peace

empty and futile

are each till they cease


lay down the children

next to the mother

taken by cancer

from arms of another


random destruction

of souls on the rise

alters our vision

as tears close our eyes


scarred are the saved

those left behind

hearts marked by deeds

 of an inhuman mind


the closest to answers

and comfort they get

lay wait in kindness

from strangers as yet
