Rainbow death

by Melissa Falls

Thoughts and prayers you tell us As our senator As our representative As our congressman

But what good are your thoughts When we're shot dead But what good are your prayers When we're shot dead

Why does your humanity only exist When we lose ours Tragically We're all equal

You say As you deny our human rights to us As you terrorize us As you kill us

You were Charlie Hebdo You were Paris But will you be Orlando Will you be the Pulse

Will you feel the pulse As it rages with anger As it beats stronger Despite the blood lost

You may say We're all equal We can marry our partners But can we use the bathroom Can we go out in public without getting shot You can but we cannot

You may see us as a rainbow But tonight We are all Bleeding, Crying, Or dead.

This was amazing, and I can actually really relate to not being able to use the bathroom one... Fantastic job, you've got a real talent for poetry!
