I am without words 
which are weapons 
& wrap me like arms 
without rocking
& rest heavy against my chest 
the way a bulletproof vest would 
if I had one 

if we all had one 
I wouldn't be writing 
about 10 people in a grocery store
or 19 children & 2 teachers

I might even have words 
instead of tears

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
