    It ricochets
    off unfeeling tarmacs
    to places deep within our hearts
    silently tears our worlds apart
    threatening our very existence.

    in the blink of an eye
    it can leaves us to watch us die-

    It reverberates through
    generations still to come
    leaving lives in the path of
    its trajectory undone

    it is deafening in its
    continuous cacophony
    crosses unimagined boundaries
    and lodges itself permanently
    in the unspoken annals
    of humanity

    It wears the silent terror
    of public sanctity-

    It is a single bullet.
