The Shot rang out
from the thicket ofleaves
and blood did spout
from a chest that once heaved.

The corpse fell slowly,
once rosy cheeked-
To the ground now Holy
without uttering a shriek.

The life source pooled
around the still boy.
Who, just the day before
had played with a toy.

The laugher bubbles not
from lips once red
for he slumbers forever
in his earthy bed.

How terribly sad. The death of children always seems to be worse in a way.
I don't like to imagine it even.

Joy

Our doubts are traitors,
And make us loose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt.

Powerful statement; yet heard by so few. Brings back too much of my past to read again, but excellent job.
