It turns us numb

Our children go off into the world,

We’ve given them the tools,

They know about good,

And evil,

They know that they need to beware

Be smart

Be aware

Be alert

And yet,

Even in the light of day,

Away from the familiar shadows,

A bright day

Brings unexpected


It turns us numb

And feeling helpless

Because we can’t live in fear

But we can’t stop it.




My heart breaks today for everyone near UCSB. Wishing peace and healing.

One thought on “It turns us numb

  1. I don’t know how it is to leave a child “into the world”… but sometimes I had wished my mother had let me “fly” instead of clinging on me as tightly as she could until this day.
