Tuesday April 20th 199, several didn't know what to say

at first it started out an ordinary day

eleven fourteen am, A lunch began

five minutes later, several students ran

two young boys tokk over Columbine high

several students panicked many cried

as the boys walked around holding guns

one of them said " This should be fun."

a girl was killed because she believed in God

a teacher was killed, when he was just doing his job

a classroom window sign said "One bleeding to death"

as several students were scared holding their breath

one knelt down and said " Peek a boo", then shot her in the head

and in an instant she was dead

one student was shot, seen helping another

the survivors still crying, looked at each other

a student was uninjured, playing dead by his friends

he kept thinking in his mind, I don't want my life to end

two teenage students died by a shot

one in the head and one in the chest

and the shooters just thought " Should we kill the rest?"

three more students died, being shot in the chest

four more were killed by a shot in the head

why is it like this?, so many dead

two more were shot, one in the head and one in the neck

the students still alive, saying in their heads, " Is it over yet?"

twentyone students were hurting with wounds

several of them asked " Will it be over soon?"

a few hourse later, the massacre came to a fall

and by the end fifteen died in all

this happend April 20th 1999

now you tell me- whats going through your mind?
