By Kristen Hall

A shot rang out..
a body hit the floor..

A river of empty tears.

A man sits and watches,
knowing nothing can be done.
The killer thinks what he has done was right,
but in reality only death has won.

We try to stop the violence,
we try to curb the hate.
But only the man who has watched,
know's the world's fate.
