Innocence lost

By:Ashlee Zlotnick

Today they’ll stand before you
and look you in the eye.
Today they’ll stand before you
and ask how the hell and why?

Why did you
speed that day?
Why did you
drive off as he lay?

Lay there like
a stiff board.
Lay there like
an ice-cold sword.

Swords
are merely giant knives.
Swords
end innocent lives.

Lives we will never
get back.
Lives we will never
place in a black sack!

Today they’ll look at a killer,
the man who took their son.
Today they’ll look at a killer
as he pays for what he has done.
