Boston Marathon 2013

by Chris Sorrenti

What can one say?

That’s the world we live in

Only one way to escape

Until then

Each on our own

Must run a marathon

Every day

Run the gauntlet

Of how human beings

Can be so mean

Cruel to one another

All I know is

When it happens again

And again and again

Want to shout out

Loud as I can

Stop this planet!

And let me off!!!

Don’t want to be here

Well said, Chris. What a senseless thing to do.

I am not American but Boston is my heart and thoughts right now. Utterly senseless actions. Hey, if you slow the earth then let me off too, please!

agreed. 100%. let's all take the next shuttle off this planet

Yes, I hear that in my own self as well. These days can be chaotic and confusing, that's for sure. And you wrote it out quite precisely.

Precise and beautiful.
