Take This

Dear ones the innocent I`m a bystander who`s having a hard time believing what I`ve been seeing live telecasting the most real life I`ve ever seen no screams
just deadly
we may not be
all that proud of
but above all else
the sneak
to get back
it`s so sad
the times we`ve had
in the air and
on the ground
tall buildings
fall down
on my knees
please God
come back
to our schools
Golden Rules
who are
the fools
rushing in
our country
even the darkest night
couldn`t imagine
what took place
and some race
at breakneck pace
let us slow down
take a long look all around
we see saw
up and down
super man
defenseless to
a plastic knife our Kryptonite
but a constant
in God
we must trust
can get us
through our
take this
