A Poem by penguin
"

I have no words

"
17 people wake up,
get ready, 
barely remember to say goodbye to their families
before walking out the door.

17 people arrive
to a place of learning,
and friends, 
and dramatic encounters.

17 people do not come home.
17 people, from the ages of 14 to 49
who lost their lives.

I do not want to be afraid to go to school.

I agree with you! Something has to be done! You shouldn't be scared to go to school! I feel for you and I hope that soon, they will figure out what to do to stop this. Nice writing!

Thank you for reading, and your lovely comments!
A poem so simplistic with commentary on current tragic events is makes for very heartfelt piece. I don't think anybody should feel unsafe at school.
