Guns

A sweet, innocent life

Crawls, walks, runs,
Has a future:
School and friends,
Talking back to parents,
Learning about the world,
Celebrating holidays,
Experiencing love,
Going through heartbreak,
Helping people,
Ambition,
Going to college,
Finding a passion,
Settling down,
Starting a family,
Laughing,
Crying,
Smiling,
Caring and being cared for.

The future is limitless

Unless

One mistake
One finger
One trigger
One bullet
1,700 miles per hour
Takes it all away

From a three-year-old.


Written due to being emotional about this (NY Times article):
Detroit Boy, 11, Charged With Manslaughter in Shooting of 3-Year-Old
and all the other gun mishaps.
