Am appealing to your gentle side
as your strikes to the living
are creating anger and outrage
to those of us amongst the living.
Not positive of what you are
attempting to do with your efforts
but to bring u loss and sorrow.
Your victims are so young
and full of potential.
The bricks of our future
crumbled to blowing dust.
The lessons you are trying to teach
have been now engrained.
Fear who may be next
at an unexpected time.
The power and sorrow
that you yield is intense.
You are taking pieces of us all
as your venom is dealt.
We appeal to you, Goddess of Death.
Let us heal.
