Fifty Heartbeats

 

We lost fifty heartbeats today,People with families and loves of their lives.It leaves us with unanswered questions,But the world responds it's not the right time.   Then when will be the right time?How many lives must be lost,To guns and the violence they cause?Nightclubs, theaters, and schools pay the cost.   But everytime someone speaks up it's"Too soon to politicize"An excuse to avoid the conversation,But would the say that if their child was one that died?

This poem is about: 
Our world
