SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENTS

Where did it come from?
How could he acquire
in just six years of life
the courage of a man?

Why did he not flee
to save his little life
when he saw the
bad man reload?

Why did he urge
his classmates to
break out of their
frozen fear and
race to safety
and long lives
while he stayed,
unafraid, defiant
of death itself?

The evil that day
was as black as it
comes, but the light
in the child shone
brighter than ten
million million suns
and streams of angels
cheered as his
fearless soul
soared to heaven.
