The life we take for granted

A fragile thing

we hold in our hands,

often taken for granted:

that we will wake up in the morning,

grab a shower, gulp the coffee,

fight rush hour to work,

until our innocence is shattered,

and we are reminded,

that our world can be shattered,

in a hailstorm of bullets.
