The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 18 - Poem by Flying Lemming

Once there was a son
And then there was a gun
There are tears in our eyes
Now the son doesn’t rise

A lost life full of promise
Left lives full of pain
We must never ever let this happen
ever again

R.I.P Rhys Jones. Age 11

    It's scary how unjust life can be...Cant believe it happened to an innocent little boy...Truly hope that scum will be caught and punished.
    Deepest sympathies to Rhys' family...I'm with you in my thoughts.
    Paul, glad you touched this tragedy.Take care my friend. (Report) Reply
