finish line

Finish line

(Boston marathon bombing)

The race has begun, runners on their way

People from around the world waited for this day.

They prepared for years to finally have a chance

Some crossed the finish line and did their celebration dance.

There were others who also waited for this day,

They to prepared but not in the same way.

They made their bombs and strategically placed

And before others could finish they finished the race.

Two bombs went off one right after the other

Killing and wounding fathers, mothers, sisters, and brothers.

The first pictures shows a 76-year-old man fall

But the killing of the eight-year-old boy is the saddest of all.

We pray for the families of the wounded and killed

They have holes in their hearts that can never be filled.

The bombers are cowards but we will shine,

Because we will all once again cross that finish line.
