News Watch

That feeling you get
When on a thrill ride
In a theme park
Nervous, jittery, 
Freaking scared!

You shake your head and
Pretend to laugh,
Close your eyes 
Blind from the top
But still you fall.

Take a deep breath
It will all be over soon.
Hold on tight, and
Scream out loud.
Fight the fear.

The ride ends,
You are safe,
But far away
A man loses his
Life.

It wasn’t a ride
There was no thrill.
What you just saw
All of it, real.
Just breathe.

Shut off the news and
Escape or at least try
But the images, 
They linger, and
Ruin in your heart.
