  • To the editor:
    Below is a poem I wrote, "Soul to Gun:"
    The man who had lost his soul
    caused so many tears to spill
    an ocean roared across the city
    even now they come
    the eyes are never dry
    The man with no soul
    broke hearts so deeply
    time could not heal the wounds and cried in dismay
    The man in need of a soul
    like so many others
    took a gun and fired
    stopped the world
    Only a man without a soul
    could take a gun and without one tear, not even one
    take what was mine, yours
    like so many others
    never caught
    The man without a soul has a gun
