Message of Condolence
PO Box 3700
Newtown, CT 06470
I wrote something, I never know honestly if this type of thing is pretentious or not, but I thought it fitting. Art is nothing if not the expression of the creator for catharsis in whatever form.
I was really disturbed by this particular shooting. They are all horrible. But I can almost wrap my head around deranged killers attacking adults or students attacking students. But for an adult to massacre defenseless children in such a one to one fashion. Well I’ve had a hard time processing it. Anyways this is what I overnighted to that PO Box. I’ll throw it up here because it means something to me.
Time is not unlike an ocean
boundless, wide and deep.
From calm sea to tempest storm;
cradle, comfort, weep.
Predators swim, their nature known
veiled, sad and scorn.
In spasm thrash, strike swiftly;
robbing, carnage, torn.
Moments serve as tranquil rivers
cherished, pause and glow.
Memorial, for what’s passed;
survive, reflect, woe.
Weak and fruitless seem these words but
console, love and cheer.
Know now that we stand by you;
Newtown, now, here.
