    Why do we have to worry or live in constant fear,
    As our children attend school year after year.
    Who can be so heartless, to play out such a murderous roll?
    Creating such tragedy, these school shootings are out of control.
    Connecticut took a hard hit this morning, straight to the heart.
    As twenty-seven loved ones died, from this world, they depart.
    A deranged, lost soul, arriving today, with deadly ammunition.
    Senselessly taking innocent lives, with a coldhearted, selfish ambition.
    Another catastrophe is done, screams haunts another schools hall,
    Innocent lives being taken, young and old, one by one they fall.
    Parents of these students receive the news and was called to convene,
    Waiting to have their children in their arms, after this horrific scene.
    Some receive their children, while others worry, as they have to wait.
    Overwhelmed with this alarming tragedy, and their childs undetermined fate.
    Taken from this world by a gunman, with no reasoning or explanation.
    While children obey the law and attend school, for their expected education.
    Terror will haunt the memories of those, who experienced the unexpected.
    By the taker of lives, who walked the halls, armed and undetected.
    Bloodshed in Newtown, this shooter had no remorse.
    Taking his own life afterwards, death again runs its course.
    It's time to say a prayer for the families, effected on this day,
    And all their pain and suffering, that will never go away.

    This morning I woke up,
    looked at the Connecticut sky.
    I had a good feeling
    I can't tell you why.
    I kissed Mommy goodbye,
    and told Daddy I love you.
    And before we separated at the sign,
    I told sister see you soon.
    The bell rung,
    we all rushed inside.
    It was warm and loving
    like a campfire light.
    The teacher smiled,
    my friends waved hello.
    We started class,
    but before you know..
    The door busted open,
    a man with a gun.
    I was scared and broken
    I looked at the sun.
    The same sun I saw
    with so much love.
    Now brought me worry
    but I'd stay tough.
    I felt a pain
    go through my whole body.
    I saw a light
    and an awful goodbye.
    I saw Mommy's face,
    her beautiful, soft lips.
    I kissed her this morning,
    she was something I'd miss.
    I smelled Daddy's cologne,
    when he hugged me today.
    He left for work,
    not knowing what life would take.
    Sister was only a few blocks away,
    in a classroom, I could see
    I'll never get to say
    how much she means to me.
    My 6th birthday was coming soon,
    I was dreaming of ponies
    dolls
    and shoes.
    Then I felt a hand
    touch my face.
    I was overwhelmed
    in an amazing grace.
    God said to me,
    " don't be worry, child.
    you've been here before.
    it's just been a while."
    I looked on my back,
    where I found wings.
    I felt a halo
    and clouds under my feet.
    With me, when I looked,
    were my friends by my side.
    That man sent us here,
    but I" m alright.
    Maybe he was sick,
    maybe he was crazy.
    Maybe he hurt us
    because he was hurting, maybe?
    I watch the tears
    all over the country.
    Over the few years
    their pain because of me.
    I watched my family
    break apart.
    but they knew
    I was in their hearts.
    I don't know much,
    but I know this;
    my mommy should've never
    had to bury her own kid.
    Although it's tough,
    although it's hard
    I think God would want us to forgive
    the killer in our hearts.
    What you dont know,
    but what I'll tell you,
    is I'm just fine.
    in this heaven of mine.
    Maybe this will teach you
    to never regret a thing.
    Be happy with what God gave you,
    because you could've been me.
    Now, maybe I was young,
    maybe I didn't deserve it.
    But maybe I taught a lesson,
    now please...learn it.
    Love with everything,
    always smile a lot.
    Remember this lesson,
    that I taught.
    Wipe the tears,
    enjoy the years.
    Time goes by fast,
    you don't know which day is your last.
    Pray for my famlily,
    for my friend's family, too.
    I'm sure they'll be grateful,
    and thankful to you.
    I'm an angel,
    all brand new.
    I came up here
    this afternoon.
    I would be 6 years old,
    but God has a plan.
    Remember this feeling of distraught,
    remember this lesson that I taught.
    R.I.P to all these beautiful kids god gained new angels today

    Check this out peeps, though a little rough...your advice and criticism is would go a long way to smoothen my writings...
    Quietly bending my pride,
    for you to become my bride
    so as to have a smooth ride
    till a child comes our way.
    Take this not as dried
    or too crunchy fried.
    But rather be mild,
    and see me as wild
    with no where to hide
    'trying to pass the tide
    created by your dad...'

    Fortunate are those who have friends,
    Who shares, bears and mends.
    In today’s world of rat races everywhere,
    Will people ever find friends anywhere?
    Some may take you up higher and higher,
    And stand as a support when you fall.
    Friends help you in your problems,
    And help to control your tantrums.
    Who is so lucky to have a good friend,
    Who is like a brother in hand.
    Some misunderstanding may break their relationship,
    But they will always unite to friendship.
    But hold on, there are fiends who act as friends,
    And shed crocodile tears to make them more near and dear.
    Fiends will never be as thick as thieves,
    But one day they ditch you ignoring your pleas
    And remember to choose your correct friend,
    Not the one who acts as friend.
    But never mind these incidents with friends,
    Because you won’t have them once you send them away.
