Orlando

Orlando

A Poem by Thomas Fitzgerald
"

My heart is heavy with the devastation and travesty the whole world is feeling now, my tears have not stopped flowing.

"


Ordinary people living ordinary life's being complete and happy,

Raging fear builds to anger in ignorant men by will of silent kisses,

Landing reason on anything related to news headlines and horrid religion,

Apple cells send out last messages to those helpless and without power,

Navigate your hand to pistols and pull the trigger, the coward among men,

Death lays at our feet now, not you, but us all in hugging hands,

Ordinary people living ordinary life's being complete and happy?

A sad loss of lives ... that reflects the haste of anger and hatred in these times.

Thank you.
A horrible happening that night. We do not yet understand the mental illness that hatred causes. If we did .. it would be the only war we ever fought. A poignant and beautiful write in the face of tragedy.

So saddening to the heart...an emotive tribute love and one that carries ripples...

Thank you.
A moving tribute, Thomas. The horrific act of one terrorist ended 49 lives and negatively impacted so many others. Yes, they were ordinary people out for a Saturday night of fun. So very sad.....when will it end? Lydi**

Indeed will it ever, thank you.
This is straight pandering and you know it. This was devoid of any substance on the matter. Be ashamed of yourself. You expressed the details of what happened in the most superficial and sanitary way. You're a vulture, you should be ashamed but I know people like you don't care.... fox news and TMZ would love to have you. The literary soup you swim in is what I piss in. You're not even fake... you're a human parrot inside a toilet begging for attention by any means necessary. You're disgusting even if no one else here can see it - I do.... I see you.

Thank you.
ordinary people who just want to live and let live...and then these events happen....why is there so much hate in the world and when will it stop?

why can't we just love and let love....

so tragic and unnecessary to slaughter so many innocents.

your poem is quite moving, Thomas.

It is deeply sad, thank you.
A sad day. Too much useless killing. I pray the people lost too soon have found a better place. Many tears and sadness for the people lost in Orlando.
