Gravestone so stiff and silent
Has a history that is somewhat defiant.
A little boy not just thirteen
Struck by a bullet,
And killed instantly.
A statue of a child praying sits
On top of his headstone.
The child looks so brave and happy.
Leaves protect his death date,
And questions surround his fate.
How can a little boy be the
Tragic victim of someone else’s mistake?
Frozen in time
Unable to ‘be’ once again.
A senseless killing; who is to blame?
Just another one of those things called pain.
