I should not
Have to worry
About my child’s safety
I should not
Have to add
Bulletproof backpacks
To their
School supplies
Next year
In order
To protect
Them
From danger
How is
This
Our reality
How did
We get here
When did schools
Become war zones
Full of
Pure evil madness
Children
Are no longer
Children
They have
Become the aggressors
Ready
To settle
Their differences
With a gun
Spraying bullets
Wildly
Hitting
What they see
As easy targets
Not seeing
Innocent victims
Things are
So drastically
Left field
Why is it
Not being seen by
The government
As a problem
Children are dying
No one is helping
Besides prayer
And
Condolences
I am just saying
Stop ignoring
This problem
Sending my child
To school
Should not
Be the last time
I see them
I should not
Have to worry
They are not coming
Home
I sent him
To school
Breathing
I want him
Back home
Breathing
And
As a community
How can
We change this
Back to being safe
Because I did not
Enroll my child
Into a war zone
I enrolled them
In school
To get an education
To be someone
Thriving
In this society
