Another Day

Another Day by Ada Perlman - Photo by Ruby Stillman

Another day

Ruined by hatred

Another gun

Its bullets striking the innocent

Another terrorist

With his sick ideas

Another sunrise

Gives us hope to live

Another funeral

A gathering for the dead

Another headline

Charleston, New Zealand, or Pittsburgh

Another tear

Shed at every reminder

Another life

Another life

Another life
