There was a lost soul out there in the world today. For some reason he couldn’t see a way out. Tomorrow we’ll read about it in the headlines. There will be more talk about gun control. There will be anger, pity, shame and sadness. No matter what the story is, I’m sure it won’t make much sense. Too many lives lost. This is all I’ve got in me tonight.

This is the book I never read
These are the words I never said
This is the path I’ll never tread
These are the dreams I’ll dream instead
This is the joy that’s seldom spread
These are the tears…
The tears we shed
This is the fear
This is the dread
These are the contents of my head

    I agree. Just voice and ivories. One of those “it doesn’t get any better than this” moments.
