Oh, Death,

I felt this, thy presence,

At the age of seven.

What happened to

The little dancing girl

Who sang with such

Wild abandonment

With flowers woven

In her blonde hair?

She lost her

Innocence

That fateful day

In the merry

Month of May

When a gunshot

Filled the air

And destroyed

Her belief that

God was everywhere.

The smell of

Tainted blood

Was in the room.

She saw eyes

That could

No longer see.

She felt death’s hand

Caress her cheek,

Heard the threat

Of harm

That made her weak.

She knew with certainty,

She could only

Save herself

That fateful day.
