Goodbye Guns

I walk into school

Just an ordinary day

Thats when I see him

On the ground I lay


He screams to “Not Move”

I stand paralyzed in fear

A gunshot goes off behind me

Each kid falls down, peer after peer


Then it’s my turn

Nowhere to run

He looks into my eyes once

Then he fires that gun


This is not the world I want to live in

Where I fear for my life

We need to rid of guns 

I’m sorry if this causes strife


But I don’t feel safe 

And neither do your children

That’s why I’m using my voice 

To help this from happening all over again
