If I die in a school shooting I'll never go home again. My room will sit unused, A capsule frozen in time, A snapshot of how I was.
If I die in a school shooting I'll never see my dog again. She will sit at the front door Waiting for me and wondering, Why I never came home.
If I die in a school shooting I'll never graduate from high school. My yearbooks will sit stacked Stopped short of their goal, Missing years that should have been.
If I die in a school shooting I'll never see my mom again. She will sit distraught, Planning a funeral For a child taken from her.
If I die in a school shooting I'll never see my friends again. They'll sit together, missing me. One empty seat among them, A constant reminder of their loss.
If I die in a school shooting I'll never see my little sister again. She will sit through high school Knowing I can't guide her through, That she has to figure it out alone.
If I die in a school shooting My school will be stained. Pools of students lives will sit, Blood tattoos on the brick structures, Marks of death ground into it.
If I die in a school shooting Everyone will wear black. They'll send their thoughts and prayers To a town marred by death, Forever to be the home of a shooting.
If I die in a school shooting Will the world change? Or will I become one of hundreds Of kids who have to die? What will it take?
If things continue this way Children will have to live in fear. They'll look over their shoulders Always worried and wondering, If they'll die in a school shooting.
The state of Florida is now home to the two most deadly mass shootings in American history. Pulse Nightclub was attacked in my city, I have friends who attend Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland. My little sister often fears going to school. I'm afraid to graduate and leave her. I want to be able to protect her if something happens. I hate that we have a reason to be afraid... That it's reasonable to have these fears. I hate it so f*cking much.
