(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.
