You'll never catch it if you never let go

Today, we’re all Dauntless.
We're all being brave
Clothed in black
and mourning
even if the death was
unidentifiable to your
heart and eyes
It still hurts and
We all can feel the grief
amidst the air
it changes us
it changes the
soft hearted
cold blooded
heart that
stones us
it changes today
so we put on our faces,
and we stand and look up.
Refusing to look down
Can you cheat death?
How many times does this have to happen here?
How many times does one life
have to be thrown into a different
place away from the people who care?
The only answer is to be awake
We now know how precious
Life is
We’re ready for now
for whatever is to come

A junior in my school, Ryan Rule, was killed in a car accident last weekend. i never knew him, but when somethinf like this happens you can feel the sadness heavily waying. This poem contributes to all of us who are greiving and are at lost. I hope to describe the love and bravery we all have-even the schools around us are supportive. I just want to express this much.

You're poems are so much more meaningful and real than so many others I have read. I love the first few lines, "Today, we're all Dauntless./We're all being brave/Clothed in black/and mourning" I like how you relate mourning to being brave.

Wow...this is so emotionally deep. It's tragic when someone's life comes to an abrupt end. Especially if they are young. Unfortunately I can relate.
