Half Mast

It's been a global trainwreck of a day
Insanity ruled as an evil reign of terror
unleashed a catastrophic campaign of violence.

In small town USA a troubled boy
turned a gun on his mother, then a school;
twenty-seven souls took flight.

In middle China a troubled man
knife in hand, attacked a primary school;
twenty-two small children maimed.

In this season of peace
all over the world, hearts bleed
as innocents and innocence - die.

In this season of peace
will we unite around our shock and grief
that our light may be a beacon of hope in the darkness?
