Gunfire Silences no one

We felt the gunfire,

In our own backyard,

This Christmas, our community

Is undeniably scarred.

The hurt lingers, salty with sadness

Devastation threatens and pulls back,

Today we feel the permanence

The blood spattered violence of ego’s misguided attack

Still we pray forgiveness,

Do Hell fires burn you back?
