13 Beautiful Souls - Poem by Kartik Saraf

13 Beautiful Souls

Haikus dedicated to the victims of the Columbine School Shootings in the exact order they died in

(Rachel Scott)
Great beautiful soul
Taken by the shroud of death
Now she lives in us

(Daniel Rohrbough)
Died a hero’s death
Gave his life to animals
To free all his peers

(Kyle Velasquez)
Gentle and peaceful
Filled with love and affection
He will never share

(Steve Curnow)
A fan of Star Wars
Dreamt of being with the stars
Now he won’t come back

(Cassie Bernall)
The girl who said “yes”
She died by the devil’s hand
A martyr for God

(Isaiah Shoels)
Tortured and ashamed
Those last words of hatred
Burned his restless soul

(Matthew Kechter)
Broken by cold death
That smile once shining with joy
Broken by bullets

(Lauren Townsend)
A life worth living
She died as she always lived
Caring for people

(John Tomlin)
A wonderful son
Very noble and hard working
Death was his reward

(Kelly Fleming)
The shy writer girl
Boundless potential and dreams
Crushed by darkened storms

(Daniel Mauser)
Honored and destined
Through his untimely murder
He woke up others

(Corey DePooter)
Likable and fun
Shining personality
And a heart of gold

(William “Dave” Sanders)
The bravest mentor
Fighting to the very end
An inspiration
