Today I don’t want to be cute.
Today I don’t want to be happy.
Here is a poem I wrote after learning about the bombing in Boston:
The Cycle of Violence
Lulled into a false sense of

Sad, but true, Rumpy.
Mom says it has always been that way with humans, the majority are good but a few bad eggs ruin it for everyone! Sad.
That’s so sad, Rumpy… and it says so much…
It hurts so much to be a caring person in this world sometimes.Sad words but true such news is always so disheartening.This is why it is important to be kind to all creatures,those who care for animals also tend to hurt that bit more .Hope tomorrow brings a brighter day.
It’s so awful, we have just put up a candle today, we don’t feel like being happy xx00xx

You’re right, Rumpy. It hurts to think about it. There are some very bad humans out there. Give the ones you love an extra snuggle today.
Such a horrid thing. It DOES hurt to think about it.
Very well said pal.
Very true and yet how sad. This is the way the bad peeps want our lives to be. A very sad day.

Oh rumpy.. I just want to hug and cuddle you. I just want to protect all my friends and keep them safe. I hate the cycle of violence, I want it to stop and everyone to just get along. *hugs*
That was very sad…….my heart is hurtuing, too…. 😦
The imagery of poetry always describes it best.
The German’s with you Rumpy. Sigh. Head pats and hugs for all sent
Sad. I hope things improve.
Your poem is a powerful expression of the truth.
Too bad you are right. We need a change. Praying for the people of Boston.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Sad but true. 😦 Humans are the true “animals.”
I feel very sad for the people who got hurt, for their families, for those who were on the scene and had to endure the shock and the sight of horror, for the rescue staff … and for all the invisible victims such as friends, colleagues, neighbours and especially children who will see images this tragedy …
I can never get used to the idea that some people consider violence as an option to defend their ideas … they must live in a horrible world, full of fright, pain and violence. Who wants to live in such a world ?
Sorry I was so long Rumpy, My human’s sister lives in Boston, and thank goodness everyone’s fine.
Sad, powerful, ….and sad.
❤ more love, more peace, more understanding….collectively we WILL make a positive change
Yes, very sad 😦
It is such a terrible thing. I am sad with you, Rumpy. A very moving poem.
Very succinct! Very sad!

A horrific tragedy. I also mourn the loss of innocent lives and pray for those who are hurting.
Only light and love can drive out the darkness.
It is tragic, Rumpy and I love the poem.

Violence is always senseless Rumpy 😦
It always makes sense to those who perpetuate it…. that’s the problem.
Violence and its existence is depressing…yet it remains in our world. We may not defeat it, but we can control it.
Oh, Rumpy. Wasn’t it terrible, awful to see the horror unfolding. Our thoughts and prayers are in Boston x.
Your poem says it well. So very sad and to have two major tragedies so close together, heartbreaking for all affected.
Straight to the point!
