NaPoWriMo Day 16 – Broken Hopes

Today’s NaPoWriMo is a poem about the atrocities that took place at the Boston Marathon yesterday. How one person can murder another is still something so utterly beyond me. I can’t understand how people can be so evil.  It’s at the funeral of people like this, who kill others, that we should celebrate.

Broken Hopes

Humans taking another ones life

Tell me, what gives you that right?

Really, what will you achieve

But heartbroken families having to grieve


Causing suffering, emotional pain

What you have done is all in vain

As people pull together, support

You set this up. Did you give any thought?


Father, Mother, Daughter, Son

Is what you’ve taken from someone

Ripped apart, torn at the seams

Broken hopes and shattered dreams
