There Are No Words

There are no words
When a mass shooting takes place
The media sensationalizes
Showing only his face
The pseudo commando
Methodically develops his plan
Precision in every detail
Unlimited ammunition in hand
Incapable of feeling
Master of manipulation
Never accountable for his actions
Or his personal situation
Instead, it turns to paranoia
Focusing only on the date and time
Where he will ‘right the wrong’
That leads to the unspeakable crime
His chance to be a hero
Where everyone will remember his name
Revenge killing of the innocent
For his ten minutes of perceived fame
It ends with taking his own
Leaving the heinous crime behind
Taking the cowardly way out
Facts and pieces investigators will never find
Paralyzing the community
A nightmare that will never end
Devastation for the hearts of so many
At the loss of their family and friends
A pain and sorrow we cannot fathom
Ripping out part of their soul
The loved ones left behind
An inconsolable heart with a gaping hole
Anguish that will last a lifetime
A pain that will never end
Wishing it was them that was taken
A broken heart that will never mend
It is not for us to understand why
Random acts of violence take place
But to focus on the emotional healing
With the comfort of seeing His face
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds
Psalm 147:3
