Trying to do the mindful thing,
focus on what I have and move forward,
in light of recent tragic events,
be aware of mortality,
be grateful I’m here,

Here come the debates and speeches,
We decry these acts,
but don’t make a dent
an abyss of power, entitlement,
they don’t care, they send their prayers,
tokens of surface,

Reach for something of worth; do something that will stop a death, or 50 plus, heal the previous.

Blind eye, don’t be shy to admit you were wrong; hard pill to swallow, we’re cheering you on.

We have one life to live, help us live it, Second Amendment or not.
