The day began just as any other day
The sun was brightly shining and casting its array,
Though the air was crisp and leaves changing color
I found myself desperately searching for cover,
This was more than a five year old boy could handle
My tears trickled down as I reached for the door handle,
My emotions were raging and my fears quickly assailing
When I heard the fatal shot that ended all of my prevailing,
My heart sunk to the pit of my stomach
As I realized that I couldn’t make sense of it,
Why would daddy do such a thing?
How could he cause so much suffering?
My world came to a crashing halt
The day mommy took a bullet to her heart
