I woke up this morning with these words in my head, which hardly ever happens.
Little hearts beating to the rhythm of their joy,
Little hearts beating in these girls and boys.
Their souls so innocent, love, laugh, learn and play,
On this day these are their tasks.
In walks a monster he is also young,
His heart beats with hate, he wears a mask.
It only takes seconds joyful lives taken,
It only takes seconds little hearts fall silent.
We all ask why, no one has an answer,
It makes no sense to a rational mind.
On this day and for a long time to come,
Our hearts beat with sadness.

Very fitting poem for a particularly tragic event.
Beautiful! Maybe this will help all of us in some way to begin to heal our broken hearts.
