In the wake of the tragedy in Connecticut, I’ve found no words to express the sadness I feel for the young lives violently taken out of this world, the caring adults who tried in vain to protect them, and the families who now experience unspeakable grief and pain as a result of this horrible event.
Fortunately, other poets have. I’m sharing a few of the poems here:
Rock Me Mercy by Yusef Komunyakaa
Hi Mommy (my first haiku) by wolfman
An Essential Journey Back to Light by Nicolas Cable
Crumble Life Poem #48 by Christopher Poindexter
