A fresh array of thoughts at the intersection of my to do list and society

Posts tagged ‘Colorado Shooting’


Today, I choose to listen and not to speak,
Peace, love and hope I solely wish to seek.
I’m not a victim, law enforcement or loved one,
So my voice is mute, my opinion is none.
I don’t know why we lost these souls,
How could this make someone whole?
I can’t change the past, I can’t fix today,
But I can help important voices have their say.
I will listen to law enforcement, to loved ones,
To hospitals and non-profits getting the job done.
I will re-tweet their information, re-post their news,
I will not share mine or other peoples’ views.
Tomorrow I will speak; my anger I will share,
But today, I will only give all the love I can spare.
