Email Poem | Today's Poetry


For some their first became their last
For others too present their past
Concert where lives and innocence
Became carnage by cartridge spent

Their joy this night changed much to grief
Life lost the slain snuffed out by theif
Felled by madman who staked his claim
His plan quite clear to kill and maim

Targets a feast to strike down all
Unknown to him, evils card called
Upon these souls by wounds incurred
A killing field by one disturbed

Broken were dreams birthed on this day
Lost by the slain as yesterdays
Become today a day to mourn
Become the scars of hearts now torn

Say a prayer for those who lost
Their life this day, a family's loss
Will suffer much for their tomorrows
Will be much filled by pain and sorrow

To those who loved and lost this day
my condolences
