I posted this about nine months ago, written the day after the Parkland shooting which had happened before I launched this blog. Today, one year on, I’m reposting it, because the feeling still very much stands. 


I have no fear in this place;
These fellows are not my murderers.
They walk beside me
Together in our common –
Sense tells me that I am safe
Here I do not worry about
Him, Her, Them feeling angry
Today and committing the
Unspeakable.

I will not go there;
to where I fear to be.
Places that could, and should
Be Safe.

I wish, I wish, I wish, that you had had that choice
Too.
