what do you mean?
my life is worth less
than your guns?
what do you mean
you’d rather have your
AR-15
than my life
than alyssa’s
than jaime’s
than luke’s?
people kill people
and it’s just mental illness
these laws won’t help
they told us
they felt.
but the chemicals
as messed up as they are
don’t make them
brutally murder
14 children
that just want an education
58 innocent people
that just want to listen to music
50 men and women
just wanting to be themselves

(this is my first poem. i know it isnt great, but i tried!)
