So much sadness

I feel it 

Heavy upon my heart

And it is not even mine to bear

But the world weeps

When buildings fall

And children cry out

For missing mothers

And fathers

And children

Harsh realities

Are flung back in faces 

When momentary joys

Like sunlit days

Turn tragic

As a car turns the wrong way

And life is shattered

A solitary moment

A single bad decision

That can destroy too quickly

We are so fragile

I cannot stop from breaking

    1. Yes, and it hit too close to home this past week. It was too heartbreaking to watch the news.
