Who Will Be Next?

Colorless Sun
"Did anyone see the darkness he hid
behind his childlike eyes?"

They are gone;
that cannot be undone.

"Who will be next
to use a gun?"

"Did he feel unloved?"
No one saw the clues.

"Did he feel alone?"
No one solved the puzzle.

We did not suspect,
until too late.
"Were all the warning signs
dismissed?"

Were there any at all?
"Whoever gave him the idea that
this was his fate?"

"Did anyone see the darkness he hid
behind his childlike eyes?"

No one is to blame.
"Did I miss some clue?"

We will miss them, move on,
value life more (at least
for a few days), and
wish for never again.

The works done with a gun
can never be undone.
They are gone;
that cannot be undone.
