Pain is a consistency in today's world.
We have all known some sort of pain,
That is the one thing we can all share.
Pain can come with sadness or anger,
But we all react to pain differently,
For knowing others' pain is impossible.
The pain that occurred in Vegas,
That is unimaginable by the rest of us,
Because we were not there.
What I know is sorrow and sadness.
I am sorry that we, as a country,
Allowed an unthinkable act to occur.
If we all know pain, should we not prevent it?
Sometimes, I am confused by humanity.
Why would someone pledge their sorrow,
But not want to prevent another tragedy?
Maybe you do not know their pain,
But I am certain that you know the sorrow.
When does it end, when do we stop
The pain and sorrow in this country?
Guns and violence can be stopped,
So let us fix the problem together.
Try to imagine the pain of Vegas,
The fear, the anger, the sadness,
Those do not have to be realized again.
And for Vegas, with love, I am sorry.
