A young girl just the age of six
Awakes one Friday morning
Happy to begin her day
Her mind she'll be exploring.
She combs her curls and says goodbye
To her mother dear
"This afternoon the weekend comes
And I'll be waiting here."
She leaves her house with thoughts of fun
And plans made with her friends
She must turn in her homework sheet
Before the school day ends.
The teacher claps and they all look,
"Hey children listen y'all."
Her voice is interrupted by
A shout heard down the hall.
The classroom door flies open and
Reveals an angry man
He pulls a gun and points it at
Her friend, Daniel Barden.
Screams are heard around the room
As he lets loose two more rounds
Her heart beats fast and she feels faint
As she crumples to the ground.
Laying there among the dead
Her friends and teacher too
She cries for mommy quietly and
Does not know what to do.
The police rush in and look around
Their faces pale as ash
They shout some orders down the hall
And grab her in a flash.
Racing through the doors she sees
Her mother straight ahead
"Mommy I'm okay" she says
"But all my friends are dead."
