Safe and Sound?

January 11, 2013

Brittany H., Scottsburg, IN By MarieAntoinette2014, Scottsburg, IN

A flag blows at half mast,
Along with a haunting melody.

Just close your eyes.
I close my eyes,
Only to see the images that haunt my dreams,
In a country where children are no longer safe.

The sun is going down,
Taking us with it,
Into the darkness,
Plunging us to a standstill,
When we need it more than ever.

You’ll be alright,
so they say,
But will we really,
When everything carries on around us,
with a mocking silence.

No one can hurt you now,
Words to comfort us,
That are lies.
So many can hurt us,
Now more than ever.
