HomePoetry Storiesthe weeping nation

the weeping nation

let us not forget the twenty angels


As the nation weeps today for the twenty

Angels which were taken away

We also weep for their families and friends

For this pain will never end.

Sitting in their classrooms with thoughts

And hopes and dreams of the holidays

In came a sick person to wipe their dreams away.

We will never know what went thru his mind that day

To take away innocent lives in such a brutal way.

It is true that god has given us free will

But why go to a school and these children he kills.

Let us not forget the adults also who gave

Their lives trying to protect the children

On this day -For them also we do pray.

Tears fill my eyes and pains fill my heart

And their names, ages, or genders

We may not know or remember

But to them our hearts and love

We do surrender.

So fly my little cherubs, and take the angels hands

For you are going to gods promised land

Where there is no suffering, wars or pain

And gods love is the what remains.
