poetics unleashed: trevor richen

 

It seems the horror will never end
because my family lost a friend.

when will there be a brighter day
so kids can go back out and play?

But now that we have faced our fears,
and heard the screaming in our ears

We’re not safe anymore
our country’s in another war

We’ll have to live another way
for terror came to us today.

— trevor richen (age 13)
