"The Victims"

Cowley Student (Vol. 8: 2019)

Those we have lost to the crimes brought upon them

Are watching over the next who encounter their villain

They sit with them haunting the one who took their life away

The one who took them from their mama and their papa

They stay with the one who stole their life and

The one who kept them out past curfew

The one who kept them from coming home forever

They stay with them, to protect the next

They stay with them to try to prevent them from doing it to the rest

To try to save a life, because there was no one there to save theirs
