Will it end?

The screams are still resonating
The smell of death still lingering
Lives destroyed & changed
In ways unforeseen & unchained

I feel the rain in my heart
As our country falls apart
Man has turned against man
But are we doing all we can

To pause and halt
To think and not bolt
Heady with revenge
And the need to avenge

I need to believe
In what we can achieve
In a tomorrow so bright
That the night will take a fright

So I close my eyes and pray
In my own small way
For the retaliation to cease
And for everlasting peace
