Seashell. (204)

I picked a seashell from the sand
and tears sting in my eyes.
It should fit in a child's small hand.
A bereft mother cries.

And tears sting in my eyes,
murdered children are piling up.
A bereft mother cries -
When will this madness STOP?

Murdered children are piling up,
mainstream media preaches 'self-defense'...
When will this madness STOP?
This defies all common sense.

Mainstream media preaches 'self-defense'...
I feel old far beyond my years.
This defies all common sense.
I write not with ink now, but with tears.

I feel old far beyond my years -
(it should fit in a child's small hand!)
I write not with ink now, but with tears.
I picked a seashell from the sand.
