Columbine In Fear

Published: August 2009

Please don't slip away,
Please don't die this way,
Just hold my hand,
And breathe in deep,
Today is the day to weep.

Their eyes are bloodshot,
The pain isn't going away,
Gunshots and screams,
Are coming down this way.

Fear is in their eyes,
Something they can't hide,
Crying while they hide,
Hoping to spare their lives.

As bullets are flying,
Parents are crying,
People are dying
While running for their lives.
