vulnerable

we will keep asking why
and wondering

that will not stop
it never will

the answers dwell somewhere
between insanity
and neglect

surely there are
answers floating
somewhere

in the face of this

we can do so much more
than wonder

we have been reminded
that it is frightening to
take a stand

whatever side
we stand on

we are vulnerable
to bullets

we are vulnerable
to finding
blood on our hands.
