Thoughts

Again and again, over and over,
thrown this way and that,
headline after headline,
Just yesterday,
you were laughing about things,
and smiling at the sun

Fate snapped its fingers,
leaving a trail of questions
and a broken question mark.

Recycled phrases plague me
“life really is too short”
“you do not know the hour”
I wish I could reverse it.
I can’t.

What can we do, who can we call on
to ease the pain that rocks our core,
to remove the shock that electrocutes us,
To relieve our minds
of this pattern?

What can we do, who can we call on
to freeze time and save someone
or maybe fifty someones,
before we know
they are going
to die?
We can’t.
