soul mates

Dedicated to those affected by gun violence...

Lest we be forgotten,
In times of hardship and sadness;
Having succumbed to the actions
Of one's misguided madness.
We are the victims
Of one's intense disdain;
Though eclipsed by the good,
The evil still remains.
We are few of many,
Subjected to a fate undeserved,
Because we had lives worth living
And worth being preserved.
Love is love,
And we shall carry no shame,
Though our lives were claimed by
Bullets bearing our names.
